Abstract

As a preliminary remark, it is important to note at the outset that “time management”, as understood below, can only refer to the last of the three understandings of time, namely the internal and personal one. A “day”, in its natural sense, cannot be managed by a person; so cannot an hour, as this is only the social construct of humanity and does not exist in the world of real and material things. What can be “managed” are the activities a single person, and so – in last instance his or her productivity – can proficiently carry out within the specific time-space of the social construct she or he has at disposal. However, if “time-management” turns into the paradigm of “activity management during a given set of time”, and thus if the focus rests on the third understanding of time (the internal perception), the existence of a multitude of subjective and psychological elements – variable over time – make it difficult to elaborate a general and absolute theory and model for time management. In other words, it seems difficult, if not impossible, to elaborate e good-forall forecast time management solution model that applies to everyone, in all situations. If the task to create a time management model valid in any circumstance for anyone seems impossible to reach – than the quest of time management becomes more narrow, but feasible and social utile: increase awareness in people about factors subjective and objective factors that usually lower efficiency in productivity and help them understand to which degree they are exposed to such factors.
