Time management, as many would agree, is a necessary skill to have in any industry, including Water/Wastewater. The simple reality and ultimate truth is that time is not manageable. Time is a finite, limited, predictable but renewable resource. There are 1,440 minutes in a day, 7 days in a week and 52 weeks in a year. By shifting our behavior and utilizing the various time management tools available, one could improve efficiency, increase productivity and gain personal satisfaction.
