Time Management
 
INTRODUCTION

The title of this book came into my mind when I began to write books. I didn’t know the importance of Time Management or Project Management skills until when I began to write books. Why do I of a sudden realize the importance of these 2 indispensable skills of life? I noticed that, you accomplish as much as you know how to use these 2 skills. And without proper usage of them, your productivity in anything will be next to nothing. I also noticed that on these 2 skills [Time Management and Project Management Skills] lie the secret of productivity. If you are lacking in any of these 2 skills, your productivity level in anything will be very low.

To me, it is like when you sum up your Time Management skill and Project Management skill together, the result you get will determine your productivity level or is a reflection of your productivity level.

For example, an intelligent Professional Project Manager that is not good in Time Management [Is a poor Time Manager], may not always be a productive person, because you cannot be productive without being a good Time Manager.

Or, a man that is a good Time Manager, but lacks good Project Management skill [He is a Poor Project Manager], may find it difficult to attain a high level productivity in any project he undertakes.

So I learnt from experience and by observation, that, of a truth, Time Management and Project Management skills are the 2 secrets of productivity. All other variables that are necessary to be productive in life are packaged inside them or added to them.

I have heard and read and seen so many MD, CEO, Founders of an Organizations, Individuals who want to be productive in what they do, but couldn’t. Many individuals want to be productive in life; they want to accomplish much in life within a specific period of time, but they couldn’t. Why couldn’t they? Many of these people don’t know the secret of productivity.

Many books on “How To Become Productive” juggle things together and make it more or less like an MBA course stuff. To pass a School Exam is quite different from passing a Life Exam. School Exam relies on, remember what I told you and bring it in the Exam. Life Exam relies on, do what I taught you, and do it to get the result I told you it will produce.

So my goal here in this book is to tell you, if you want to be productive in life or in whatsoever thing you are doing: Time Management and Project Management skills are the 2 life skills that you need to acquire and do them. I will dwell much more on Time Management skills with reference where necessary to Project Management skill. The real truth is that, you can’t learn Time Management skill without understanding what Project Management is, because they are interrelated and interdepended.

DEFINITION OF TERMS

1. TIME MANAGEMENT

What is Time Management? Time Management is the breaking down of a Block of time into segments [or smaller blocks] to be allocated with activities, task or project to be carried out within each of these blocks of time.

I have a Block of Time within my disposal, [24 hours, 1 Week, 1 Month, 1 Year] and I break it down into segments or blocks of time, then allocate activities, task or project to be done within each of these blocks of time. That is what Time Management is all about.

2. PROJECT MANAGEMENT

What is Project Management? Project Management is the breaking down of a conceptualized task [ideas, dreams, goals, project or activities] into segments or blocks of activities, to be carried out, and then allocate time to each of these blocks of activities, to be executed or carried out within this allocated time.

I have a defined project to be carried out. I break it down into segments or blocks of tasks. Then I allocate amount of time to each of these block of tasks, to be carried out within this allocated times. That is what Project Management means.

Like I said before, in this book, I dwell much more on Time Management skill and in another book, on Project Management skill. I intentionally do this, so that the reader will not juggle things together.

I want the reader to understand each of these skills separately, and to a practical application level, and then able to interrelate each of them together to increase his or her productivity level.

From the above 2 definitions, you could see that Time Management and Project Management are interrelated. And to achieve productivity in any venture of life, these 2 skills are needed.

Of a truth, I want to be productive. I want to do more, and achieve more within a period of time. But how do I do that?

It was in my quest to be more productive that I embarked on many projects and allocate time to get them done. It was along the line that, I discovered that, the more I allocated time to a task or project to be done, and stick to time [schedule] and get the task or project done within this allocated time, the more productive I become. So I realized that, there must be an interrelationship and interdependence between Time Management and Project Management to achieve productivity. I decided to practice this for a while till it become part of my lifestyle and what I find out during this time that brought so much changes into my life and my productivity level, is what I want to tell you here. Most of my writings are “Do It Yourself” [DIY] stuff, so they are practicable and verifiable.
