According to me, Planning, prioritizing, setting goals and multitasking are the best time management techniques. We never realize how many distractions there are until we do a proper assessment.
Effective time management is very essential and we need to appreciate the value of time and spend it more wisely. We never get everything done in exactly the way we want, so to avoid this. I've started to use time recording application from Replicon. It is the key in the amount of time I want it to track and it will count down in the background.
