Some people are naturally very punctual. They are excellent at managing their time. Some people are not that efficient and they struggle to keep up with time. Efficiency, productivity and also stress depend a lot on how one manages time.
Not everyone can develop one of the several time management styles. In such cases, the natural style can be groomed to be more effective and efficient. Let us first understand the various time management styles that people have.
One of the most debated time management styles is the achievement management. There are many people who manage their time in accordance with the tasks they do and the jobs they complete. Every little and major achievement marks the fruition of their invested time. Such people would only take up so much work that they can manage to do and will not commit to any more. When they are done with the impending tasks, within the deadlines, they would move onto other tasks. Such people are very dependable. They know their limits and are very practical. They are also quite ambitious because they rate their time from the perspective of how productive it has been. Such people value time and are often the blue eyed boy or the go to girl in an organization.
One of the worst time management styles is casual management. This style is typically possessed by all the procrastinators, the unproductive people, the ones that are perennially late and would never deliver by the deadline. These people lose track of time, they fall behind, they are reactive instead of being proactive and they often get drowned in work due to poor management of the time that was available to them but they spilled it. There is a bit of a silver lining for those who indulge in casual time management. They don’t partake in the rat race and are rather happy with their steady and transformative approach. This helps them to become more creative.
Then there are people who have a crisis management style. These people deal every pressing problem or task as top priority. For them, every task has to be done right now and they would only be at peace once the work is done. These people are always proactive and very committed but they are also prone to burnouts and stress.
One of the more desirable time management styles is precision management. These people care more about the quality of their work instead of how quickly or slowly they do it.
Finally, there is the social management style which is redundant in the professional sphere but quintessential for socialites or social butterflies. These people don’t care about time as long as they are having a good time. These people can keep talking endlessly and forget about their tasks or commitments.
