Dreaming of a day of 48 hours and a week of eight days? You are not alone. Between family life, children, work (at home or at the office), leisure and friends, the clock and calendar become some kind of enemies.

According to a survey conducted on behalf of the Statistical Institute of Qu©bec (ISQ), 41.4% of Quebecers and 40.8% of Quebecers said that they "feel pressed for time, every day ".

But when you say a big €No€ in a the right way, you will save a lot of precious time!

Make lists

One of the best ways for effective time management is by dressing a list of things to do every week.

Ultimately, your list should reflect your priorities. Do the tasks you have to do first and group your activities.


A good way to manage time effectively is by outsourcing tasks to relatives, colleagues, subordinates, who will perform them. But be sure to check the progress of any task you have outsourced. There is nothing more unpleasant than to learn that a colleague was unable to perform the job. You will then be faced to an emergency.
