Managing you time effectively becomes a real challenge in a world full of all kinds of distractions.The uptake of digital media and the pervasiveness of the smart hand-held devices made some people forget about their real life and only live on the cloud. Think about how many times an email bip, a Facebook notification, or a Twitter tweet interrupted you in the middle of ,say, reading a book or working on an assignment.
There are actually several time management web tools that can help you schedule and organize your time but again it is not about technology it is about the way you use this technology. It takes a higher sense of focus to do it. It might also require a sort of goal orientation and setting out plans.
From my own personal experience with time management, what I actually do is I set out goals/ plans for each day and at the end of the day I check them out to see what I have achieved and what not. The feeling of accomplishment I feel when I realize I have achieved the goals for a particular day is really unparalleled. Try it out and you will see.
