Personal Time Management and the Pomodoro Technique

Give yourself a surprise and time yourself to see what you can do in 5 minutes. This will give you an idea how much time you should allow for things.
It is amazing what you can do in 5 minutes, when you know you are working to a dead line.
Then, for interest, see what you can do in 1 min, then 30 secs.
You will be surprised... I was!

Personal Time Management can be Used in Every Area of your Life

Setting goals puts you ahead of the pack...
Some people blame everything that goes wrong in their life on something or someone else.
In time management the goals you set should be SMART, they should be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and timed.
Also we should be positive (goals should be phrased positively, so they help you feel good about yourself and what you're trying to accomplish) and personal (goals must be personal. They must reflect your own dreams and values).
