Stick to your daily schedule and you will quickly find time in your day to handle more work and spend more time with your family.

Avoid getting distracted by e-mails and phone calls by blocking out two times each day to return calls and respond to messages.

3) Mastering Time Management

Mastering time management so you can accomplish more tasks and spend time with your family is simple once you commit to it. It\’s time to get committed!
