I found myself thinking “I’m running out of time!” during a particularly hectic day at work. I know it’s a common problem whether you are working at work or home. Last week, I also found myself talking to a church member who happens to be a senior and she said, “When I was growing up we managed to work a job, do house work, and be active in church.” I started to wonder how they did it. I came to a conclusion that they must have had better time management and organizational skills. So, this week, I decided to focus on resources dealing with time management and organizing.

Evernote is able to keep and organize notes, speeches, photos, ideas, etc. What I like about the free basic account is that you can send your material directly to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and e-mail.
Remember the Milk is a neat website that will keep your “to do” list for work and personal tasks. Tasks can be sent to Gmail, e-mail, Google Calendar, Evernote, Alexa, Siri, Twitter, and Feeds. Reminders can be sent by e-mail, text, IM, Twitter, and mobile apps for Android, iOS, and BlackBerry 10. This is a free app.
Toggl has a free version of its software and helps you keep track of your time. The paid version helps you track billable hours.
Hopefully these resources will help you keep track of your time and help you stay organized. Then you can say, “I’ve got all the time in the world.”
