  2. One of my favorite time management techniques is to schedule blocks of time in my day for everything. I don’t just put appointments and places I have to be on my calendar. I also schedule writing time, time for research and study, time to make phone calls or write e-mails. Otherwise, I tend to overbook and not allow enough time for things that need to be done with just me, alone, at my desk. My time is just as important as the time I spend with others.
