How to have time for the important things.
Time, like money, is said to be earned, saved, spent or wasted. Perhaps this is also why a popular proverb warns that time is money. And how money is both a resource and a constraint.
According to research, a routine manager spends 42% of his working time in meetings and interviews, another 15% spends it on the phone or handling correspondence, and another 9% goes on trips or transfers. If we add up we are already at 66%, that is two thirds of the total. The trouble is that often the third residue is taken by a sneaky thief: lost time.
You can be a master or a prisoner of time. Mastering it means establishing where to place our actions in precise temporal spaces, making conscious choices also regarding the things to which we assign more value in work and private life.
Moreover, a manager has one more task: he finds himself having to organize, manage and coordinate the times of others. For this "Beat the time!" it does not limit itself to dealing exclusively with time management, but indicates the opportunities and methods for an effective exercise of the delegation and illustrates problem solving methods and techniques. Because the problems are among the most registered thieves of the time.
This book is a journey through Time Management techniques coming from experience, tried and tested by those who really managed to beat time.
