Clarity about life objectives
You can't manage your time effectively unless you are absolutely clear on your life objectives. You can obtain clarity by way of
Write down all your visions about what you want to achieve, create, experience, see, learn and practice in your life.
The areas that you identify in this way provide clarity about your mission, strategic orientation, desires and attitudes to life.
Methods of time management 
When you have identified the things that are important to you with the measures that you will use to achieve them and the dates by when you want to have achieved them, you can group other tasks around your issues, follow an efficient time management concept and apply the appropriate methods (e.g. time scheduling and deadline monitoring, filing, documentation and archiving systems, creation of a quiet work environment that helps you to concentrate while you work, use of modern communication and information methods etc.)
