The Pine Tree Philosophy

The Time Manager® is based on the idea of a pine tree. The tree has a trunk which carries the large branches. The branches carry the smaller branches or twigs, which in turn carry the needles.

The TrunkThe trunk is you and the overall goals you have set yourself for your private and professional life.


The BranchesThe branches are key areas - the main areas on which to concentrate your efforts in order to reach your goals.

The TwigsThe twigs are major tasks to be performed within each key area.


The Pine NeedlesThe pine needles are all the practical activities and details that are necessary to complete each of your major tasks.



When you have achieved control of all your goals, key areas, tasks and activities, you have a total overview that makes you feel at ease. You will know that you are in control.
