Productivity Questionnaire

How well you manage your time is an important criterion of personal success. Most of us attempt it but often end up saying something like, “If I could only find the time...”  Those who are truly successful devote themselves to learning and practicing time management techniques every day. Once good habits are set, good judgment can be applied in future situations.

To find out how well you manage your time, answer the following questions using the point scale below:

  1 - rarely
2 - sometimes
3 - most of the time
a.
Others call you disorganized.
b.
Others expect you to meet commitments, just not on time.
c.
You are interrupted many times each day.
d.
You tend to leave for a 1 p.m. meeting at 1 p.m.
e.
You list many things to do but lack the time to do them.
f.
Others are always waiting for you.
g.
You promise yourself time off away from the office but never follow through with it.

i.
Time is your adversary each day.
j.
You spend time looking for things you've already worked on.
k.
