Business entrepreneurs need to invest more than money and effort. They need to integrate the functioning of their work units by assigning the correct time to each activity. Time management therefore becomes essential to the working and profitability of a concern. Leisure time helps one relax. One makes better decisions when one is relaxed.

Time works for all of us

When we have time, we need to do something useful or spend it pleasurably. That is the essence of good time management. On a personal level, people are able manage time and leisure admirably without considering options. When the basic unit expands to more than one person, time management becomes significantly harder mainly because there are multiple individuals having different orientations in time. Need for balancing time to accommodate the work and leisure is only a simple task and yet remains undone within the schedule of most people because they simply do not care. They work while there is something to be done and then relax when it is done. That is the simplest option to make your moment work for you.

Importance of segregating time into classes

This aspect of time gets prominence when one makes a decision. Decisions are the turning points of life. It is a bit like learning blogging. One does not make decisions (or turnings) every 10 minutes. So, any decision made will remain for at least 1 year normally. Now consider the matter of having options. If you have an option would you use it? Definitely, one likes options because it adds to the variety of life. It helps one to change the itinerary and make it more exciting. So where does one go for options?

Leisure time and working time

Leisure time activity may not be the same for all people even when they have the same tastes and leanings. So, within an office or an online shop the decision to make time breaks for all the employees will not produce a instance demarcation that is uniform for all of them. Some employees want to go jogging in the morning while others prefer to spend their evenings in the park for their leisure. Even those who prefer eating out in pubs and restaurants may prefer different food items, say hamburgers versus pizzas. Some like the option of hogging in a downtown atmosphere while others prefer the swanky high class lights more. For certain, one may not arrive at a consensus in this decision making activity.
Working time is productive period. People produce something related to science and technology that someone else wants and is ready to pay for. The time allotted for working usually ranges from 8 – 10 hours in the normal course of a working day though entrepreneurs are known to spend less than 4 hours allocating and supervising work and then goof off for the rest of the day.
Most of the successful people have some practices that set them apart. They care for people and have an enormous value for their time. They do not like to waste time and they treat all the people they come in contact with respectfully. People like to listen to what they say and are ready to interact with such people. This distinguishing characteristic is called time management.

Integrating various functions together efficiently

Entrepreneurs need to have an efficient time management and event control mechanism in place for running their businesses successfully. Businesses have many different organs functioning at different periods and the success of the enterprise would depend on the whole unit coming through in an effective manner. And all this is without considering the marketing aspect of the business. Balancing work and leisure helps these businesspeople keep an effective time management system working for them.

Nice post with apt videos too, thanks Snerfu. The young are into multitasking - is it an excuse to do nothing of value leaving the old to do the hard physical part like cooking, washing, looking after children etc?

For me, with Wikinut proving a jealous mistress, I have no time to manage outside of it! siva
