6 Essential Time Management Tips for Architects.

It’s a familiar story: with so much work to do and architecture’s client-focused nature, many architects struggle to divide up their time effectively. But did you know that there are some simple time management techniques that might appeal to your architect mindset?.

1. Manage Your Time Proactively.
Being proactive with your time means making deliberate choices about what you do and, more importantly, what you don’t do. It means focusing on the important tasks that get results. It’s about using leverage and being effective.
