Feel like there aren't enough hours in the day to do everything that needs to get done? Unfortunately, you can't add extra hours to your day. You can, however, learn to make better use of the hours you already have, according to contributors Joe Mathews, Don Debolt, and Deb Percival.
"Time is mental," insist Mathews, Debolt, and Percival. "It exists between your ears. You create it. Anything you create, you can manage."

To successfully manage your time, the trio suggest, do away with to-do lists. Instead, embrace appointment books.

"Any activity or conversation that's important to your success should have a time assigned to it," they conclude. "To-do lists get longer and longer to the point where they're unworkable. Appointment books work. Schedule appointments with yourself and create time blocks for high-priority thoughts, conversations, and actions. Schedule when they will begin and end. Have the discipline to keep these appointments."

When you approach time for what it is -- a limited commodity -- you'll find you're better able to control it.
