The Benefits of Time Management
Aside from the fulfillment that one derives out of being more efficient and productive the effective practice of time management allows the following benefits:
A sense of achievement
In the workplace, man’s worth to the company is measured against the amount of output that is contributed and the influence that it creates. Knowing that one is competitive raises creativity and a sense of well being.
People who have effective management skills are recognized for the good contributors that they are and are richly rewarded because management is always on the lookout for people who have proven discipline paths that can be replicated.
Often it is not the amount of work done but the amount of work that is yet to be done that causes stress. This is complicated by the frenzy of activity that one goes through without showing much for results.
Anxiety is more often the result of not being sure where one is going. It is performing many different tasks without a sense of getting anywhere. In these instances, pressure mounts and the anxiety is heightened.
Knowing that a task is undertaken and well done results to approval. Effective people are confident knowing their worth and being recognized for it.
Energy levels are increased
Well-organized and effective people avoid clutter resulting to clearer thinking. They know that there are no unfinished businesses, no job hanging, nothing is half done and tasks that are half-right. As schedules and deadlines are met, energy level increases.
The Me time.
One of the best benefits of gaining time management skill is that it allows the person to gain quality time for his leisure. Gaining time for the self to indulge on things that one enjoys most is to be sought. Being tied down so much to work because there is no other option results to so many negative repercussions, one of which is the inability to really do the things that one would enjoy most.
The routine of waking up each morning knowing that one would go back to the same work and workplace. Stressing the self out with the tasks at hand. Going back home again knowing that tomorrow will more or less just be the same as the day before, results to frustration and not being able to enjoy life as it ought to be.
The benefits of time management and the opportunity it provides does not only empower the person that practices it, it also creates an influence that benefits other people as well.
