    Hi Cesar – It was a pleasure to be on your show. I just noticed that there’s not a Facebook social button, and I wondered if that was on purpose?

    fwade I really enjoyed our conversation.  The button is there on top of the post (and below it too).  Do you not see it?

    There are many other skill sets that a project manager may need to have. But in my experience, time management is the most important skills that should require for project managers. I’ve heard that successful time management is more about keeping our motivation and shows path for success, rather than just following any particular system or software tool. 
    But it’s not like that, time management tools and applications really helps to manage our tasks and time without giving stress. I believe and I’m a huge fan of time management systems.
    Personally, I use Replicon ( http://www.replicon.com/olp/online-time-recording-software.aspx ) software for time recording! It is one of the best application I’ve ever seen in my career. Its such an excellent software to manage our daily, weekly and monthly routine.
