Time Management Effectiveness Assessment


The Time-Management Effectiveness Profile

If your bank credited your personal account with $480 every morning and then debited whatever part of the amount that you failed to use by 5:00 P.M., what would you do? Draw out every dollar and cent, of course!

Time is like that bank: every morning, we are each credited with 480 minutes in an 8-hour work day, and 1,440 minutes in a 24-hour period. Every night, our “€œtime bank”€ writes off as lost whatever moments we have failed to invest in a good purpose. It carries no balance forward and allows no overdrafts. Each new day, it opens a new account with us, and each night it burns the record for the day.

If we fail to use the day’€s deposit, the loss is all ours. There is no going back, no drawing against tomorrow. We must live in the present – €”on today’€s deposit. Invest in it to get the utmost in health, happiness, education, and service, or anything else that is valuable to you.

The Time-Management Effectiveness Profile has been designed to help individuals make the most of their time-bank investment. As such, it is intended to provide a useful way for the individual to rate themselves in a number of competency areas widely considered relevant to effective time management. This questionnaire is divided into seven segments that constitute an overall time-management profile:

  • Predisposition/Temperament
  • Preparation
  • Organizational Ability
  • Stress Management
  • Delegation
  • Managing Interruptions
  • Results

Don’€t be cavalier in protecting your most valuable asset – €Time!
