Time management sounds like such a staid and dull activity. Making to-do lists, keeping schedules, and detailed planning can seem like the dubious forms of personal enrichment and pleasure only felt by type-A personalities. Who wants to look like a fool, walking about with one eye on a check list and the other on a clock?

I do, and if you want a career that will go somewhere, you might as well. Time management may seem dull, but it is a soft skill that can make an enormous difference at work -- and in the rest of your life.
