Self review is a process by which you learn more about our self such as, what we like, what we don’t like and also how we tend to react to certain situation. Knowing these all things can help determine which occupation and work situation could be a better fit for us.

Self review can cover personality and attitude, skills and achievement, knowledge and learning style, interests, values and also entrepreneurism.

Skills of time management

“Prioritizing is the answer to time management problem-not computer, efficiency experts, or matrix scheduling. You do not need to do work faster or to eliminate gapes in productivity to make better use of your time. You need to spend more time on the right thing …” (ray Johnson)

Priority of work, more important information

Priority of work, less important information.

Prioritizing is about making choices of what to do and what not to do. To prioritize effectively you need to be able to recognize what is important, as well as to see the difference between urgent and important.
