Time management is a habit, a process, and a mindset for the working professional to get things done. Time management is our personalized tactical plan to handle today, tomorrow and the coming days. Good time management is about working smarter, not harder, to get the most done same 24 hour in a day and seven days in a week…etc., etc..
Time management is, also, how we ensure that we:
know is happening,
Know what needs to happen in the future,
Are properly focused on the important tasks, and
Achieve work life balance.

Every now and then, someone will send me a message with an acronym in it, which either I have forgotten or didn’t know. As it happens a friend of mine ended a message, recently, with ‘GIGO’, which took me a split second to remember, so, I thought I would write it down for future reference. If nothing else, the writing down of the definition may help me remember it a little faster next time.
What Does GIGO Mean?
Basically, ‘GIGO’ means: Garbage In, Garbage Out
What is the concept of Garbage In, Garbage Out (GIGO)?
From an Information technology and Information science perspective, the GIGO concept is that poor information coming into a process, will produce poor, unreliable, and inconsistent results; and can even break the process. Here I used the term information because in the modern information ecosphere the input can be more than just the data, it may be Meta Data, Business rules, information processing, and governance practices, as well as, the source system data.
The term system availability, in a nutshell, describes a system operating correctly, reachable, and is available for use by consuming customer and systems. Generally, speaking system availability is a measure used to ensure that a system and/or application is meeting it Service Level Agreement (SLA) obligations. Any loss of service, whether planned or unplanned, is known as an outage. Downtime is the duration of an outage measured in units of time (e.g., minutes or hours).
