People having "Time Management" as a study subject also the people who can think about it and practicing it in daily life will be highly appreciated here...

    @叮噹叔叔 : say "no" to people who haven't appointment with me? or you wanna say something else?

    ...

    I assume that we all know the basics of priorities, what is urgent, what is important, also what is the "big picture" and all those crap ... so if we can live without any interruptions, our timetables would usually be OK ... however, most of us have a weakness called "being nice" ...

    One thing I have noticed over the years, is people like asking for small favours ... these usually started with little tasks that might take a few minutes, and then like some flesh-eating aliens or monsters, they grow ... and grow ... and grow ... and if you dont learn to say "no", these kind of interruptions can eat up all your time ...

    ... and that's all I mean ...

    Any well planned timetable should always allow mishaps, interruptions, accidents, as well as doing little favours for the sweet old lady in the office, or the sweet old lady who happens to be your wife (hahahaha, oops) ...

    Man, if you can get at 90% of it, then well done. Many do not even go beyond 10% of it.

    Classify things into categories of the important and the urgent according to the goal that you wanna achieve. Then give your priority to the important most of the time.

    Look into the "Getting Things Done" model

    I have a weekly time-table taped to my door(8 hours of classes, 2 hours of violin, 2 hours of Chinese, 4 hours of gym...so on). I don't follow it too well, but the thought is there!
