Don't wear a watch.
Gavri Fernandez says:
Has always been my time management strategy. Serious.
Me and time don't see eye-to-eye.
Stopped wearing one since I started carrying a mobile phone. Code duplication is evil ;-)
Rolling on the floor laughing...
Heh. I find it very difficult to survive a day without a watch. It's just that feeling of something being tied to your wrist that I have so gotten used to it. I think my watch serves other purposes better than just showing the time. It could be a perfect indication to someone that he is boring me to death, or I'm getting late for something else, my perennial habit of checking the time just for the heck of it .None of these reasons are , as obvious, remotely related to any time management. : )

Good funda.. Never thought it this way.
Btw,I've stopped wearing watch for past 2 months.
@Gavri, @Deepak: Bingo! That's exactly what I realized.
@Ankit: It's only a coincidence that my watch's battery stopped working.
@Niara: Well, I'm not such a subtle man. If I'm bored with a person, it's usually very apparent ;-).
@Allagappan: You stopped wearing it just like that?
Yup.I felt uneasy something being tied to myself.
@allagappan: what are your thoughts on an engagement ring? :-p
Heh. I don't own one. Im still trying to figure out how to get rid of the time display on my TaskBar though :)
:)) Were u wearing one in college ;)
@deepak: I'm saved by the fact that we don't wear a wedding ring!
@Deepak : Good one.
@Vig : As an experiment, I removed the time display in the top bar in my Powerbook. However, I have set it such that a voice tells me the time every hour on the hour. I also have alarms in iCal for any meetings. Basically, I don't go after time, it comes after me.
@Srikanth : I was. Isn't it obvious now why I never managed time properly in college? ;)
