I don't know about a Time Management Guru, but I think Debe Maxwell, CRS has figured out how to get more done in 24 hours than anyone I've ever met.  She is amazing!

You lost me at "Guru". 

We have so many self-appointed "gurus" in all areas of life. 

Buyer Beware.

There are those who are gifted in being extremely productive and getting more done in the time given. They don't like to waste time doing non-productive things. My husband is one of those people. The rest of us have to use tools to achieve more. I use time blocking. I'm no guru but it works for me.

Respect for time is not discussed enough. Time itself is not as important as the meaningful and responsible use of it. We should use it to practice eternity

That's what I would like to know.
I'm only getting 18 hours for a day. How many hours do you get?
Some, from my observation, employ task management philosophy that adds up to "Don't do it if someone else will end up doing it for you."
I like to set priorities based on 'Does this lead DIRECTLY to money?'
Money next month or next year get a lowering priority.
Next question is "Will this prevent me from doing something essential?"
Last question, "Are you having fun?" Although the last question this would not be the last priority.

I manage my time effectively by delegating that which gives me no enjoyment or return on investment.

I don't know of one here, Peter. I am happy to share a tip with you though, for what it's worth...

Calendar blocking is my best tool. Silly things like phone calls, date nights go on my calendar - heck, EVERYTHING goes on my calendar! If there's a hole in my day, I'll be able to tell anyone who calls, asking for something!

Also, don't re-arrange your calendar - if something is already on the calendar, schedule around it! Don't ever let anyone talk you out of an appointment that you have already set - that sets up a time-suck you don't want to have to deal with!

Don't know. What works for some, doesn't work for others. There are many programs like: Rescue time, Evernote, Full Focus Planner,  etc than can help with getting organized and saving time.
