It made Mr. Lakein the guru of time management, a much sought-after corporate consultant and adviser to busy celebrities like Gloria Steinem and Neil Diamond.

We've all been there: It's already 3 p.m., and we still have 101 tasks to complete. Time management is nearly impossible when interruptions and distractions are everywhere. Whether it's the constant stream of e-mails and phone calls or office colleagues wanting to chat about their weekend plans, we never seem to have enough time at work to work. Browsing online can begin innocently enough, but that five minutes usually turn into 20 minutes. (OK, I admit it, I looked for Suri Cruise's pictures at work last week.

The Bel Air volleyball team enjoyed a milestone season in 2012, winning the program's first Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference championship and qualifying for the state tournament for the first time since 1999. In the middle of all the excitement was setter Amanda Rodriguez. Now a senior captain in her fourth year on varsity, she is focused on helping the Bobcats maintain the lofty standard set last season with a largely new cast and head coach. So far, so good. Bel Air is 5-1 in the early season with Rodriguez, an All-Metro first-team selection last year, the catalyst.

In an era before many modern conveniences took hold in Howard County's agricultural households, homemakers clubs offered rural woman what amounted to home economics tips on time management and kitchen technique. One event took place through Aug. 20, 1928, a contest in which "home management agents" advised housewives on how to better arrange kitchens to eliminate wasted time in the preparation of meals. A vintage photograph shows a "rest and beauty corner" in one such kitchen - an indoor sink and stool, taking the place of bare table and water bucket.

Rare is the person who will baldly claim to be organized, time-efficient, in control of life's kadillion demands.But the fact is most people use or develop some time-saving behaviors.

And time management experts say that without stop watches and other severe measures, employees can be taught to use their time far more effectively.By the same token, employees seeking to preserve their jobs can use time management techniques to make themselves more competitive, says Michael Bryant, a consultant and president of Career Transition Services in Baltimore.

Time can be a small-business owner's best friend or worst enemy. It all depends on how you use it. There just never seem to be enough hours in the day to get things done. Time is extremely valuable to business owners - especially if you bill for time. Wasting time can be harmful to your bottom line. To operate efficiently, your business might need systems for managing time and keeping track of who's working on what and for how long. Most successful small-business owners are also successful time managers.

A business student from New Zealand, conducting a survey of "successful" folks, asked me to reveal my time-management secrets. My first instinct was to ignore the request. I get irritated when people pull out complex, fat "organizer" kits. Time-management "consultants" annoy me even more. My reaction is doubtless defensive. I have no time-management secrets. In fact, I consider myself a c time manager.Still, I like to respond to student requests (especially ones that flatter me). Besides, I figured I must have an implicit "time management model."

For one student, it took learning to strategize to make it through. Another became noticeably more responsible in all aspects of life. Yet another learned that time management and goal-setting lead to success. Each of them, along with 24 of their peers, used these new skills to cross the finish line in this year's Marathon of Achievement. The Marathon of Achievement, or MOA, is a way for the students to excel outside of their regular studies. Created more than a decade ago by Southampton Team 7D teachers, the goal is to challenge students with academic, cultural and character building exercises that offer each of them a chance to be a winner.

When he started to run competitively as a freshman - going out for cross country to prepare for the basketball season - Perry Hall senior standout Vince Ciattei said he didn't have much success. But there was something about running that simply had him. By his sophomore year, Ciattei was competing in cross country, indoor and outdoor track. "It was, 'Well, if I wanted to be really competitive, I need to go all in,'" he said. The best advice Ciattei received came from his coach, Marilyn Bevans, who told him you only get out of running what you put into it. Ciattei has put in the time, and the results are showing.

For the past decade, the definition of the new "Oriole Way" has been up for debate. Here's a stab at it: managerial instability. If Sam Perlozzo gets fired this season, his replacement will be the club's sixth manager since 1997. Only the Toronto Blue Jays (who have had seven, including a five-game interim stint by Mel Queen in 1997) have had more managerial flux in the past 10 years. The Chicago Cubs, Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals also have had six - including interim managers - in the past 10 years.

Traditional time-management methods make sense to only about 50 percent of the population. The other half finds filing, making lists and honoring the clock's dictates both mind-boggling and frustrating.These people are often labeled as unorganized procrastinators, while their "better halves" get a pat on the back for efficiency. But some time-management experts say it's time to ditch those judgments. They encourage viewing the two groups as operating from right-brain- and left-brain-dominant spheres.

When Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons and starting pitcher Ted Lilly charged into the home dugout tunnel Monday night, they also walked into a peculiar area of baseball history. It doesn't happen too often - at least not publicly - but physical skirmishes between a manager and one of his players have dotted baseball's landscape for decades. The altercation between Gibbons and Lilly - which happened after Gibbons removed his pitcher in a seven-run inning and Lilly complained and then cursed at his manager while walking off the field - was not an all-timer.
