It's important that you develop effective strategies for managing your time to balance the conflicting demands of time for study, leisure, earning money and jobhunting. Time management skills are valuable in jobhunting, but also in many other aspects of life: from revising for examinations to working in a vacation job.
One skill that is prevalent in all leaders of repute is time management.
Time management is the process of planning and exercising conscious control of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectiveness, efficiency or productivity. It is a juggling act of various demands of study, social life, employment, family, and personal interests and commitments with the finiteness of time. Using time effectively gives the person "choice" on spending/managing activities at their own time and expediency.
Developing Time Management Mindset
Time management is a critical skill in modern times. People are constantly under pressure to try and get more done in the sameor less, time. The world we live in has developed a productivity and efficiency mindset. Organizations are constantly pushing for more. New technologies are comint to market market everyday specially aimed at improving productivity. However, getting more done is not necessarily the answer. A time management mindset and a productivity mindset are absolutely different things.
A time management mindset focuses on completing quality work whereas a productivity mindset focuses on completing am increased quantity of work. Under a productivity mindset, outcome is measured by the volume of work but in case of time management mindset, outcome is always measured in terms of progress made towards key goals and set objectives.
