Chetana House - Meeting (08th July, 2016)

Time Management
This instructional tool has two parts. Part 1 allows you to record how you spend
your time over a two-week period. Part 2 helps you identify where you could be
making more use of your time and enables you to develop a plan of action to
achieve this.

Time Management: How do you spend your time?


There are 168 hours in each week. Are you satisfied with how you spend your time? What is the balance
between your work, travel, maintenance (shopping, cooking, cleaning, etc.), home, and leisure time?

Recording your Time


The following page gives you an opportunity to accurately record your activities over a typical week. The log
is divided into intervals of two hours. Either record your activities at two-hourly intervals or at the end of each
day. We suggest that you log your activities over a two-week period.
