5 Time Management Tools You Can Use Towards Your Goal

If there’s one commodity that we cannot change no matter what we do, we can all agree that it is time. Time is so precious that we cannot just let it go to waste. After all, we cannot undo what has happened in the past. Therefore, it is good to make the best out of the time at hand. However, this is easier said than done. It seems life has made it a personal mission to keep interfering with what we love doing or derailing us from achieving our goals. How is it possible to manage the finite time we have?

You may need some external help with that. Here are our top five time management tools that you can use in order to make some progress towards your goal.  

“If you want to be more productive, you need to become the master of your minutes.” — Crystal Paine



Whether you are using a timesheet to record your time at work or to check your progress in your task, you need not worry anymore. Forget about using traditional timesheet because Toggl will do all these things for you. Whether you are working on individual tasks or different chapters of your story, Toggl enables you to track the time you spend on every task.

This will give you a general idea of how much time you’re spending on each task. Which tasks do you finish first and which ones do you delay on? Moreover, Toggl will also give you a summary of the tasks you’re working for the past week.

 Panda Focus Mode

Panda Focus Mode is technically not a time management tool. However, it has a unique way of reminding you to focus your attention and maximize your time in order to work for your goals. It is an extension that lets you focus on accomplishing your tasks. Whenever you open a new tab, the tool reminds you of the tasks that need to get done. There’s no way you can forget them because it keeps reminding you now and then. This is a great tool for people who tend to be forgetful or are having a hard time focusing on their projects. Panda Focus Mode will prevent you from falling for distractions that hinder you from accomplishing your tasks.

 Hocus Focus

For our MAC users, you can use hocus focus to help you in eliminating distractions in your work environment. It is a time management tool that hides your inactive windows automatically. This is essentially good because it helps to maintain your focus. In no time you’ll be so immersed in what you are doing, and you won’t be tempted to go back to your Facebook window or browse your social media news feeds anymore.


There’s no doubt that the number one enemy when it comes to project and time management skills is being distractions by the Internet. Although the Internet provides the tons of information we need to stay productive, it is also a major distraction.

It is not hard to find oneself diverting from the course of one’s work to read a blog post to read social media posts for hours. Before you knew it, you have wasted a day of supposedly productive work.

There is no need for worry anymore because  Forest is here. This is an interesting app that helps you eliminate distraction and beat Internet addiction. When you press the “plant tree” button on this app to plant a tree, it disables the use of any other app until the time is up. This allows you to make good use of your 30 minutes. 


If you want to have an extensive overview and details of your time management, then this app is a must. TimeDoctor has a lot of useful features to help you manage your time properly. For one, you can record and track the time you spent on each task.  TimeDoctor’s notable feature is that it tracks all the apps, software, and website you’ve browsed throughout the duration of your project.

Yes! It will enable you to see how much time you have dedicated to browsing Facebook contrary to working. This will help you narrow down to what your main distractions are and eliminate them. You’ll be surprised at how much free time you actually have!
