What is effective time management?

Being effective with your time means applying a set of simple but yet effective tools to allow you to:
• Be more prepared and organised for meetings
• Recognise where you can negotiate deadlines and in some instances, refuse excessive amounts of workloads whilst eliminating time wastages
• Effectively manage and monitor project progress as well as recognising the resource (time) required to ensure the quality and quantity is achieved on time
• Judge the urgency and importance of your tasks
• Plan ahead ensuring long term projects are not ignored and progressed in good time
• Plan and organise your workload each day/week effectively
• Apply a consistent level of self-discipline
