Time Management
Time management refers to a range of skills, tools, and techniques used to manage time when accomplishing specific tasks, projects and goals. This set encompasses a wide scope of activities, and these include planning, allocating, setting goals, delegation, analysis of time spent, monitoring, organizing, scheduling, and prioritizing. Initially time management referred to just business or work activities, but eventually the term broadened to include personal activities as well. A time management system is a designed combination of processes, tools and techniques.
Good health is defined as a person having no mental and physical illness. If you are healthy then you can enjoy the happiness of life. And if you are ill you don't have interest in living.
Some authors (such as Stephen R. Covey) offered a categorization scheme for the hundreds of time management approaches that they reviewed

  • First generation: reminders based on clocks and watches, but with computer implementation possible; can be used to alert a person when a task is to be done.
  • Second generation: planning and preparation based on calendar and appointment books; includes setting goals.
  • Third generation: planning, prioritizing, controlling (using a personal organizer, other paper-based objects, or computer or PDA-based systems) activities on a daily basis. This approach implies spending some time in clarifying values and priorities.
Fourth generation: being efficient and proactive using any of the above tools; places goals and roles as the controlling element of the system and favors importance over urgency
