Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below by choosing the most appropriate options of all.

Time management refers to a set of skills, principles, tools, and practices that work together and assist you in getting more value out of your time and improve the way you live your life. Time management also refers to the different ways that are used for planning and exercising proper control over the amount of time that is spent on number of activities with the aim of increasing efficiency, effectiveness, performance and productivity.

Time management does not necessarily mean that you should do more work in less time; rather it means how much of the important work you get done in the time that you have. There are a number of techniques that you can use for managing time while performing tasks within the specified intervals of time.

The steps that you can follow for achieving proper time management include writing down the tasks that you have to perform, prioritizing the list of tasks, planning your work according to your time schedule. You must always think properly before initiating with any project or work. This will greatly help you in avoiding wastage of time on unnecessary things. Find out the resources that can help you to fulfill the task in less time and more effectively.

There was a time management categorization scheme that was introduced by Stephen R. Covey for categorizing the hundreds of approaches that were used for time management from one generation to other. This categorization scheme is explained as follows:

The first generation approaches consisted of the watch and clock based reminders, which were used to alert people about the time when a task is to be done.

The second generation approaches consisted of the use of calendar and notepads for scheduling the appointments as well as planning and preparing for the work. Setting of goals was also included in this approach.

The third generation time management activities included planning and prioritizing of the tasks to have a control over them. These activities were carried out with the help of gadgets such as computers or PDA-based systems. Personal organizers and paper based objects were also used for prioritizing work activities daily.

The fourth generation time management approaches favored importance as compared to the urgency. Here, the duties that were more important were performed first instead of those that were very urgent but not important.

All you need is dedication and practice in order to master the art of time management.
