Time management



Time management is about prioritising activities to improve the way that you use time

Managing your time allows you to focus on the most important activities at the right time

Urgent is NOT the same as important, concentrate your efforts on important issues

Good umpires manage their time successfully before, during and after the match

Before the match
    Travel, colleague discussion, inspection, meet scorers, toss discussion
During the match
    Start, intervals, interruptions, end, fall of wickets, players leaving/returning
After the match
    Colleague discussion, reports, clubhouse
It is important to realise that even the most organised umpire will only be able to accomplish most of what they want to. Trying to accomplish everything is exhausting
