Conquer Time

Here's a little secret: Incorporate the three Eff- words into your management style. This means you must be ‘eff'ective, ‘eff'icient and do your job ‘eff'ortlessly.

I'll confess, these aren't my trade secrets. But isn't it a good thing to share something that is ‘eff'ective? Well, let's leave the games aside and try to understand why these ‘eff' words are so important in management today.

So we must learn how to harness the power of time to our benefit. Effective time management allows us to avoid that horrible last minute rush to meet a deadline. Also we learn how to get the most out of a workday. Here are a few things you can do to ensure that you don't lose time.
