Take A Time Management Quiz

Take A Time Management Quiz

Hi! It's great to have you drop by The Cool Time and Money Blog.

The ability to manage time is a skill that can make our lives so much better. And the inability to do so will doom us to economic mediocrity!

You're probably already familiar with the 80-20 Rule, which is also called the Pareto Principle.

If you aren't, in essence it states that 80% of the benefits you will ever derive from anything will stem from just 20% of the activities related to that 'thing'. The mirror situation is also true. For instance, in manufacturing concerns, 80% of rejects arise from just 20% of the entire process.

This principle was first formulated by the fiercely bearded Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who lived from 1848-1923. Even though his area of study was income distribution within society, clearly over the ensuing decades many more applications of his principle have been discovered.

Not surprisingly then, the Pareto Principle has also been found to apply to the field of time management. The problem most of us have, however, is correctly identifying which 20% of our normal habits or tendencies cause 80% of our time management woes. Well, I did some research and found this great FREE time management quiz by a highly qualified coach and organisational problem solver named Dr Barbara Reinhold, which does just that! Take it!

I think you'll find the quiz's results eye-opening. If, however, you also find the results disturbing, you'll find help for your time management woes in my ebook UNSHACKLED. Check it out, but only invest in it if you find the benefits of time management compelling to you.

All the best in becoming a better time manager. I wish you well.

Warmest regards,


Rajen
