Volume 19, Issue 4
  • ISSN : 1011-3487



This article examinationines the actual time academics have at their disposal, and the lack of time they feel and experience in practice; how they use and misuse their time and the effect this has on their state of being. The authors work on the premise that time management is a life skill. By means of surveys administered over a period of three years across all Faculties in a South African, and within one Faculty in particular, issues relating to the use of time by academics are identified and analysed, compared and contrasted. The concluding section identifies principles which can lead to improved use of time and an enhanced sense of well-being of academics of Higher Education.
