I always find the 20/80 rule to come in handy for time management.
If you need to hand in any work (to your boss, your client, ...) make sure to ask feedback when your 80% ready (and thus only spent 20% of your time). If you're on the "wrong" track you didn't lose 80% of your time finishing something that has to be redone anyway AND you can probably save additional time of the remaining 80% from the pointers you received from the feedback.
With all the respect, I have a much better way - I'm walk out of the office every time somebody try to stress me with his problem, and telling him call to me when he calmed down...
After 15 years it has a magical effect - when someone want to talk me, he takes a deep breath to cal himself down and then addresses me...
