Chapter 4. Principles of time management > Benefits of time management

Benefits of time management

There are several benefits of time management:

  • Control stress. Time management is stress prevention. Time management reduces stress because you can meet deadlines, and you can work fewer hours with greater results.

  • Balance your life. Working long hours and taking work home with you can harm the natural balance you should have in your life. By learning to manage your time, you can do things you want to do instead of spending all your time on work responsibilities.

  • Increase productivity. Part of time management is determining how you spend your time. Once you determine how you spend your time, you can modify your schedule to increase productivity. For example, you might find that you waste time in meetings when a group e-mail could address the issue just as well.

  • Identify priorities. People who have the most trouble managing their time are those who do not know what their priorities are or should be. Knowing your priorities helps you spend valuable time where you need it most.

  • Accomplish goals. One of the most important aspects of having a time management plan is setting goals. Without goals, what you are working toward is unclear. Following your time management plan increases your chances of accomplishing the goals you set.
