Realistic Time Management
Effective Time Management starts with a willingness to do something different.
As the saying goes, if we keep doing what we're doing, we'll get more of what we've got.
Patterns of Behaviour
80% of the average workday is spent on things that have “little value” or “no value”
So first off, look at your patterns of behaviour and ways of working.
Are they helping you strike a balance between getting the little things done and the important things that need to be taken care of?
If not, what changes are you willing to make?
Change the Way You Approach Managing Your Time in Just One Day!
They could be small changes: things like saying no (in the kindest way possible of course!); having a good think about what's important and needs planning for, versus what can be "fitted in" around bigger tasks.
Or how about making a list of all the ways you already manage pressure well and commit yourself to do more of that?
After all, if it works, why fix it?
Take Yourself Seriously
Either way, the things you decide to change could fall along the wayside without one very important factor - taking yourself seriously.
You are just as important as anyone who has demands on your time.
Letting them know that in a way that feels comfortable for you can be the lynchpin in kicking off a virtuous cycle.

Communicate Your Needs
As you start to communicate to others that they can't take advantage of you without consequences; you'll begin to experience time management differently and have a more positive reaction to pressure.
It'll literally start to change the way you see yourself and the tasks in your life.
Creating this virtuous cycle isn't as hard as it might seem.
Being better at managing your time simply means starting to unpick some of the emotional stuff that drives you and finding ways to recognise your patterns.
Change those patterns and the world starts changing around you.
