A friend of mine needed my help with something a few days ago. He says he was too loaded with all his other tasks in writing and community management that he couldn’t handle the next few batch of jobs. I obliged. So he sent me all the details of his writing and web development jobs and handed it over to me.

Being the outsource expert that I am, I got it done in less than 2 days. The following weekend I asked him what’s up and he told me: “I guess I was just too into community management…” ‘Your community huh?” With a grin, he admits that he got too distracted with his Facebook chat with friends that he missed at least 2 hours of work.

In that little story, we see how important time management is. If you don’t get something done when it’s expected, there’s going to be hell to pay. Heck, just ask my friend.

In any case, here’s a few things you might want to do to make sure you keep your schedule tight:

If needed, hold up a sign that reminds you that it’s time for work and you can’t waste any of it on something you can check on after.

In any context, time management is an essential part of living. You need to be able to manage your time wisely if you want to perform well at work and enjoy life to the fullest.
