‘What is this life if full of care, we have to no time to stand and stare’
wrote W.H. Davies way back in the early 1900s.
The reason why a poem, from so long ago, is popular after a whole century is that these simple and deep words have become reality for an alarming majority of human beings today. Be it little kids in their early years of schooling or retired adults trying to catch up on family time and hobbies, all of us are hard pressed for time.
The modern day technology allows us to talk to people across the world in real time, send data in seconds, travel at the speed of our decisions, record large amounts of data in microscopic space and what not! Gestation periods have gone down in a big way. All our regular activities like cooking, cleaning, commuting and procuring have become faster; and yet we are hard pressed for time!
Perhaps we want to do more number of things than we ever did earlier and that’s why time is never enough. Perhaps technological advances have actually complicated life rather than simplifying it. Perhaps the earth is moving faster around its axis making our days shorter!
Different people talk and think differently about time. To some, ‘Time is money’, to some others, ‘time is opportunity’ and to yet another lot ‘time is leisure’. Since time means different things to us, managing time also, has several connotations.
Popular interpretations of Time Management
Some of the popular interpretations of Time Management are:
- Being punctual (Physically present on time every time)
- Being well planned and organised
- Being able to meet commitments, deadlines and promises
- Being able to do it all – Multitasking
- Being successful – getting what they want when they want it
What do organisations expect from professionals?
Modern day technology has opened up opportunities for individuals and corporations alike. Diversity and flexibility are the order of the day. Hence, organisations expect professionals to sync in with the increasing demands by finding innovative ways to achieve desired results. Managing time plays a pivotal role in the process of attaining goals. Teams have to meet, communicate, take decisions, resolve conflicts and implement decisions in a timely manner to be able to achieve common goals.
To ensure that all members of their teams understand these expectations, Learning and Development teams of organisations invest in time management training at different levels for their employees.
