Tricia Drevets published a great list of her top five books on time management. She provides a very short review on each book. She says:
Ever since I was a little girl, I have made myself a daily to-do list. I cross out tasks as I accomplish them, and I try to set aside time for both short- and long-term goals. I write down appointments, meetings and deadlines, and I make adjustments in my schedule if something takes longer than I thought.
However, as my life has gotten busier and my distractions have gotten, well, more distracting, I have found that some of my methods of time management don’t work so well any more. In fact, I sometimes get too busy, and I forget to budget in “down” time. My productivity, my creativity, and often my sanity, suffer as a result.
Time management – the ability to plan and control how you spend the hours of your day in order to accomplish your goals – has always been an important part of being successful. Today, as more and more devices are distracting us, effective time management is more important than ever. Just ask anyone who has paused to “just check” her messages only to come up for air to find a big chunk of her morning gone with a big deadline looming.
