Time allocation

Time allocation is the allocation of time to different tasks and activities. The measurement of such allocations may be used analytically in studies of human behaviour. Scheduling and time management may be used to plan and control the amount of time allocated to various activities, so as to improve productivity and satisfy multiple goals and targets.[1] One of the important factors in successful time allocation is the decision of where to allocate ones time. In order to excel in one area, one must allocate more time to it and by default allocate less time to another area.[2]
