Effective time management is crucial in successfully balancing work and family time. To find extra time in your day, first keep a journal of how you spend you time over a two or three day period. Include everything, even time on the telephone, watching television and reading. Next, use these notes to identify your greatest time wasters. Then determine where you can eliminate or limit them.
The trick to finding extra time each day is to work smart, not hard. Be organized and have everything well planned and you will find that you have more time to spare.
