Time Management

Time Management: Using your Time Effectively

time_management_large_200Edward Sheldrick of Time Management Inc says that people at work are either pearl crushers or pearl divers. The pearl crushers destroy the gifts that work brings while the pearl divers discover them. Pearl crushers are time fillers. They  see each stretch of work as a period to endure and fill. Pearl divers, on the other hand, are time managers. They see each minute of the day as time to be enjoyed, spent well, and used for profit. While pearl crushers are at the mercy of events, pearl divers feel in control. Are you a pearl crusher or a pearl diver?
