Time together is the foundation for healthy relationships. Good time management means you can spend more time togther as a family.
Deciding what to do each day and then doing it determines the quality of what you have.
What about for children?
Skills are learnt that will serve in later life
Punctuality is a big issue in terms of time management for kids who have a less developed sense of time (and rightly so, although it can drive parents and teachers nuts!)
Homework gets done (well, it gets done more often.)
Children who learn to manage their time are developing self discipline and a sense of responsibilty.
Why is time management important when you no longer work?
Time takes on a whole new meaning. Work no longer dictates so much of your day -- you and your finances do.
At this stage of life you’re more concerned with what to take on as opposed to what to cut out. Knowing how to manage your time helps you do that.
From childhood to old age, time management means you do more of what matters to you. You’re clear about what you want, you have things to look forward to, goals to work towards, and you feel good about the way you spend your time.
Whether your day is full of demands or you’ve got hours to choose how to use, how you manage your time will dictate how you feel about it.
