We can view time as a series of future events that will happen to us, no matter what we do (reactive view) or we can see it as the result of personal decisions we daily make (proactive view). Am I a victim of time or am I an actor of my life? Do I have a say in how I spend my time? The purpose of time management is to gain awareness of our responsibilities, define the important things in our life, and learn to make decisions accordingly, work decisions and leisure decisions. For this we need to have a clear view of life purpose and professional responsibilities, gain confidence to stop doing some things, start doing others, delegate, improve productivity at meetings, gain discipline in personal planning and execution, deal with interruptions and unforeseen tasks, and develop a proactive state of mind.
