Time Management Hints, Tips, and Techniques

Mike Gardner - The Time Doctor

Hi I’m Mike Gardner, ‘The Time Doctor’ and author of this Blog. I realise you’re busy so let’s make sure you’re in the right place.

If you would like to discover time management hints, tips and techniques that will enable you to improve your management of time and prioritize your activities, so that you can be incredibly productive, whilst still having time for the things that matter most in your life, then you are in the right place.

Does this sound like you?

If you’re like most of my readers, you’re a small business owner, entrepreneur or independent professional who  lives in a very hectic world in which you always seem to be rushing around doing stuff, whether it’s related to family life or business life, you’re constantly trying to be incredibly productive, whilst balancing your business and family commitments in a way that enables you to feel fulfilled and guilt-free.

You have so many things going on in both “lives” that you never seem to be able to catch up and get everything done that needs to be done.

Time Management Hints, Tips, and Techniques

In the rare instance that you do, it is achieved only through struggle and strain– it’s never easy and comfortable at all. You’re not the only one who feels this way, but you’re the only one that can change it!!

My Goal in Writing This Blog

Through this blog and associated Facebook and Twitter accounts, my aim is to provide time management hints, tips and techniques that help you, the small business owner, entrepreneur or independent professional, to free up time to spend with your family whilst at the same time being being incredibly productive and running a successful business.

Time management doesn’t come easily, but it is a behaviour around which skills can be learnt. By improving your time management skills, you will then have more time to spend working on your business rather than in it, whilst still having time to do what you choose to do, spending time with your family or perhaps time enjoying leisure activities.

Learning time management skills is a lifelong process that gives you the ability to get the most effective return on everything you do during the course of the day.
