Action management is a misnomer

Dan Bobinski the CEO and director of the Center for Workplace Excellence say’s, “We can only manage our actions within the time we have” and hence it is better to phrase it as ‘action management’.

However, there is a vast difference when called as ‘action management’.

Time is external and when you manage time, it is managing something external.

Similarly,when called ‘action management’ it is internal and equivalent to managing one’s self.

Hence when you phrase it as ‘action management it becomes a part of self-control or self improvement.

Do you agree?
