The time crunch! There is never enough time in the day. Even with high‐tech tools such as computers, fax machines and even automatic teller machines to do our banking, we still have increasing time pressures. There are many theories about time management skills. For the most part these theories centre around methods that utilise the left brain or logical and analytical hemisphere of the brain. New approaches in time management are focusing on the right or intuitive side of the brain. Explores the differences between the left and right brain hemispheres and their respective theories on time management, focusing primarily on the right brain approach. In addition, shows how one should balance the use of both sides of the brain to increase productivity and creativity.
