The Time Management Style Assessment (TMSA), by Kevin Kruse, will give you a thorough analysis of your current time management behaviors. The two primary factors driving time mastery are being clear on your priorities, and using the mechanics of planning (based on the groundbreaking 1994 research of Dr. Therese Hoff Macan). Understanding your current level of competence in these two domains will enable you to identify areas for improvement and further productivity gains.
This assessment consists of 12 statements. Consider each statement and select the number, one through five, that most closely matches your level of agreement.

Understanding Your Time Management Style
The two dominant factors when it comes to time and productivity effectiveness are Priorities and Planning. In other words, you need to be clear on WHAT you should be doing, and HOW you can effectively get it done. Look at your highlighted results in the two by two matrix above, and then review:
Frantic & Confused – this indicates ineffectiveness in both Priorities and Planning. You are uncertain as to what you should be working on, and don’t have a system for getting things done.
Spinning Your Wheels – this quadrant suggests that you have at least above average skills in organization, but are unclear as to which items deserve your attention the most.
Distracted & Frustrated – while you are somewhat clear on what you need to accomplish, progress is slow and you are frequently working off-task.
Calm & Confident – this quadrant shows that you are clear on your priorities and consistently use good planning to get it done. You feel confident in your current level of effectiveness, but it’s likely you are always on the lookout for ways to become even more productive.
