Here’s Why Time Management Has Wasted Your Time

Time Management has not worked for you, if you still suffer from #stress, have a #ToDoList that is never done do not let #procrastination get in your way, read on.

Time Management
Cover to Myth of Time Management

As a Sales and Marketing Manager for over 30 years and, like you, trying all kinds of ways to manage time, I went on to become a University Senior Lecturer. Here I was asked to teach Time Management to managers and other students. Despite my best efforts, I finally concluded that Time Management does not work.

So, after 10 years research, I began to unravel the truth about Time Management theories and practice. I have come to the conclusion that Time Management is a myth. You cannot manage time but you can have timelyness.

The solution was not so easy to find, but now I am launching it not just as a book, but also as a blog, an e-book and online training programme.

If you are thinking this is another self-help book with a fancy title that, as Suzanne Harrington wrote, they tend to be – Self Help is No Help“, then think again.

The Myth of Time Management is a powerful Personal Development programme that:


  • Pulls on research from a multitude of disciplines including management and mind-body sciences.
  • Brings you an alternative and practical approach on how you utilise your time to be more efficient and effective, helping you to lead a happier life
  • Uses approaches that are mindful have been shown to reduce anxiety, depression and stress by 50% (The Guardian).


All research is referenced, so you can explore it yourself.  Each chapter has activities to help you apply the learning and improve your skills step by step.

It utilises modern digital technologies, but is based on practices that have stood the test of time.

I will be offering a range of media to suit you. If you like reading paper books or e-books, watching videos, doing online courses then we will have an option that suits you and your lifestyle.

I am currently doing editorial checks. If you think you would be interested in this work, then just follow the blog using the email subscription facility on the right.

Alternatively follow me on your favourite social network by clicking on the social media buttons, Facebook,  or   LinkedIN  and Twitter.

As a Follower or subscriber you will see posts and tips to get a sense on what this new approach is about and help in the new approach  of TIMELYNESS 

You will also be offered preferential rates on publication and free samples so you can get a sense of what it is all about, before making any commitments.

Time to act, so start following these posts and become a better time person. Its free, so you have nothing to lose.

Best Wishes

  24. I’m not sure where you’re getting your info, but great topic. I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more. Thanks for excellent information I was looking for this info for my mission.| а

  25. I believe everything composed was very logical. However, what about this? what if you typed a catchier title? I ain’t suggesting your information is not good, however suppose you added something that grabbed people’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little vanilla. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news titles to get people to open the links. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it might bring your website a little livelier.| а

  26. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.| а

  27. Online news articles often have comments (and they aren’t always worth reading, believe me). They are not blogs; they are more like dead forums. Blogs are (at least they used to be) a two-way conversation between writer and readers.
    Content marketing has certainly blurred the line (and the need for such a line if there ever was one) between distinct categorizations of content, but a blog post has a different feel to it than an article, even if only in theory.

  28. An article is matter-of-fact. A blog seems more personal. An article relays information. A blog tells a story, even unintentionally over time as the posts accumulate.
    Sometimes having blog comments helps you, the writer, stay away from a dry article. Knowing there is a possibility people will comment keeps you on your toes.

  29. I’ve often considered turning off the comments on my personal blog. The main reason I haven’t? No joke: my mom enjoys leaving encouraging comments, so I leave them on. But maybe you’ve decided to turn your blog comments off? You have every right to do so.
    There are blogs that do not have comments, and there is a place for that. Even readers are revolting against blog comments with a “don’t read the comments” trend due to blogs whose unmoderated comment sections are an ugly, vile disaster.

  30. If you already have a huge audience, if you are active on social media and only want to use your blog as home for original content but not conversation, if you feel you want to reduce the “noise” of all the opinions on your blog, or if you are writing for personal reasons and have no desire for feedback from outside readers, feel free to turn off your comments.
    There is nothing wrong with that. Not every blog is building an audience or trying to achieve monetary or marketing success.

    There is nothing wrong with that. Not every blog is building an audience or trying to achieve monetary or marketing success.

  32. As always, ask yourself: what is the reason you are blogging? What will help you, and what will hinder you?
    Comments might be detrimental to you for the reasons I pointed out at the start. But if you want to build an audience, and you enjoy conversation and feedback, moderate and keep your blog comments.

  33. May I simply just say what a comfort to find a person that actually knows what they’re discussing on the web. You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people really need to look at this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular because you surely possess the gift.| а
