Managing time is important but there is something even more important. That is, where you invest your time. There is no use of saving time when your time expenditure is in the wrong direction. What comes first, the compass or the clock? Before one can truly manage time (the clock), it is important to know where you are going, what your priorities and goals are, in which direction you are headed (the compass). Where you are headed is more important than how fast you are going. After you have set your priorities, then you can set out to find time for it. This is where time management comes into picture. There is time, hidden in the nooks and crevices of your day. If you have the will, you will find it. A person learned 3 languages by reading vocabulary cards while peeing.

A whole world has moved inside these electronic devices. Technology can be a great time waster or great time saver, it depends on you.
