Professional Beauty;Nov/Dec2009, p9
The author reflects on the significant issue of managing time in the working world, as professionals shift their priorities to various forms of pressure in the workplace as well as its demands. She asserts that one thing that hinders people from practicing time management properly is the distraction caused by the use of technology. She affirms that another component is the tendency for people to lay still and not use their free moment to be productive.
