Run a Crisis Management Log Crisis management forrepparttar most part is whenrepparttar 102096 deadline has snuck up upon you and robbed you of choice, you have to respond and you are a slave torepparttar 102097 clock. Crisis management is generally poor time management because you're rushing,repparttar 102098 quality of your performance suffers, your stress level is elevated, and, most important, you are often having to go back and re-do what was done inrepparttar 102099 first place. "If you want to manage it, measure it." Run a Crisis Management Log for a week. After encountering every crisis, log it in on a piece of paper. After a week of accumulatingrepparttar 102100 data, go back through every crisis that occurred and ask yourself, "Which one of these could have been avoided?" and start to take corrective steps to stop their reoccurrence and buy back some "smarter" time for your weeks ahead.

The average person can easily double their reading rate and thereby cut their reading time in half or doublerepparttar 102102 volume of reading material they can go through inrepparttar 102103 same amount of time.

Do Daily Planning "A stitch in time saves 9." Every grandmother knows this. Every minute of planning will save you nine minutes in execution. Walt Whitman,repparttar 102104 poet, said it best, "The most powerful time is when we are alone, thinking about what we are to do." Daily Planning helps us to focus on what is really crucial and important in our day to come and permits us to identify time wasters in advance to avoid them and use that time more productively.
