  2. DEFINITION OF TIME MANAGEMENT • Time management is the process of planning and exercising conscious control of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectiveness, efficiency, and productivity. It involves a juggling act of various demands upon a person relating to work, social life, family, hobbies, personal interests, and commitments with the finiteness of time. • Time Management includes: i. Effective Planning ii.Setting goals and objectives iii.Setting deadlines iv.Delegation of responsibilities v.Prioritizing activities as per their importance vi.Spending the right time on the right activity
  3. IMPORTANCE OF TIME MANAGEMENT • There are immense benefits of time management. By understanding the importance of time management in life, we can achieve more in life. Everybody has the same 24 hours in a day. It’s important to learn how to maximize your time so you can be productive at work and life in general. • Time management allows us to i. Do more in less time ii. Take better decisions iii. Procure achievement iv. Enjoy a superior quality of life.
  5. TOOLS OF TIME MANAGEMENT • There are various tools involved in the management of work time. It is very important to consider them while managing time. They provide the basis for time management. These are as follows: i. Peak Loads ii. Work Curves iii. Rest periods, and iv. Work Simplification
  6. PEAK LOADS • This is one of the important tools to be considered while managing work time. • For most people activities pile up on each other at certain times of the day or the week or the month or the season. These packed periods are called peak -loads. • For example, for a homemaker peak loads can be daily, weekly or seasonal such as the time of breakfast and getting the family off for the day is a daily peak load, the thorough cleaning of the house a periodic peak load and the Diwali or a festival preparation, a seasonal peak load. • The peak load may be lessened by delegating some work to other family members or by adopting some work simplification methods. • Awareness of the peak load and the methods of handling them is an important tool for managing time. This is even more important for a homemaker who is gainfully employed outside the home.
  7. WORK CURVES • The second tool for managing work time is identifying the work curve and taking cues from it. • A typical work curve has the following features: i. Starts sluggishly ii. Sharp rise as worker gets into stride iii. Falling off in the middle of the spell with a fresh spurt as work nears its end iv. Find falling at the last hour
  8. REST PERIODS • This is the third tool for time management. • A rest period need not mean complete cessation from work, although that is desirable after a heavy manual labour. The greatest results can be expected if the worker lies down and relaxes completely, because reclining requires less expenditure of energy than any other body position. • As compared to most workers, the homemaker can provide good conditions for rest more easily. • A change in the type of work may also serve as rest periods for each other. • Rest period ensure boosted motivation, time to recover after a burnout, greater zest in doing one’s work and hence, better work output
  9. WORK SIMPLIFICATION • It is also one of the tools of time management which is related to energy management, as it includes improving methods of work which requires lowering both time and energy expenditures, because the time and energy are required to do any task and they largely depend on the hand and body motions used. • In simple terms, work simplification is the conscious seeking of the simplest, easiest, and quickest method of doing work. Or in other words we can say that work simplification means improvement in performance of task. • It is a very important tool of time management which not only is helpful in an industry but a very useful tool for a homemaker who wants to have a liberal supply of time as well as the need to conserve her energy.
