Time is the most limited resource we have. The entire world is now functioning fast, requiring us to keep up with the pace. However, this is easier said than done, as more than 70% of all employees work during weekends and their free time, while half of corporate employees answer their emails before even getting out of bed. This never-ending race against time leads to mental and physical exhaustion.
On the other hand, companies seem to lose thousands of millions yearly due to employees' poor time management. These facts are not pretty at all, regardless if you are an entrepreneur, an employee or an employer.

- answering calls and emails
- having casual chats
- indulging in too many meetings
- trying to micro-manage
- not setting your priorities right.
There are many more time wasters out there, but most of them are linked in one way or another to those in this list. It's important to identify them and work on counteracting them by employing the next time management tips and techniques.
