Time Management: Lists
Time is a wonderful gift from God. While we do not know how many years we will be granted here on Earth, we do know that everyone has the same 24 hours each day, with 168 hours each week. The busiest person utilizes the same amount of time each day as the least accomplished person who only manages to spend the day on the couch, watching TV or playing computer games! What does your current use of time indicate about you? This activity will help you see how much time you truly have left to “manage” once you determine what time you currently have committed to your daily activities and tasks. Complete the chart provided below to see where you stand now. Simply type in the hours spent on each activity and total up each column.
