Everyone agrees that time is a valuable resource. Each of us has a limited amount of it to use for work, family and leisure activities. As more demands are placed on us, our decisions on how we use our time become more difficult. Making the most of it becomes a necessity.

This extension circular discusses how to set your objectives and priorities, streamline decision-making processes, recognize scheduling hints and tools and effectively handle interruptions. Juggling the time demands of work and family, while working at a business in the home, requires additional considerations.
