To make the most efficient use of my time, it is important that I identify and work to eliminate my five worst time robbers. They are poor planning, equipment failure, poor communication, and interruptions.

Firstly, a poor plan will robe my useful time. You should make a good and detail plan before operate it which will help you saving a lot of time. That because of a poor plan may block you with many complex troubles when you go further.

Secondly, an equipment failure is another time robber to be notice. For example, if the technology system in one technology-based firm fails down, then it will cost the company millions of dollars because of this problem.

Thirdly, many people spend times useless because of their poor communication. For instance, one business firm will lost both a good customer and revenue whenever it can not reach an agreement in making a big new contract with the important customer. However, the company will become more successful if their employees are well communication person.

Finally, interruption is my important points in time robbers. They attempt to destruct your times and may cause you a lot of troubles. A successful person in time management will meet a good life and always walk on the right way to achieve their dream than others.

Hi luve, welcome to EnglishForward.

There is probably work for more than one reviewer here, so I'll go through it once lightly:

'To make the most efficient use of my time, it is important that I identify and work to eliminate my five worst time robbers. They are poor planning, equipment failure, poor communication, and interruptions.'

FINE-- except that I can only count four robbers!

'First, a poor plan will rob me of useful time. I should make a complete and detailed plan before implementing it, which will help save considerable time. That is because a poor plan may block you with many complex problems later.'

'Firstly, secondly' etc. is listed as more formal, esp in BrE, but I find it an awkward and unnecessary overformality-- 'first, second' etc. are clear and direct in any writing. Keep the person consistent-- if you start with 'I', then continue using 'I'; don't switch to 'you' then 'person' (however, I notice farther down in your essay that you do better with 'a person', so perhaps you should change all to 3rd person). 'Good' is a vague word; choose something more specific. Avoid 'a lot of' in formal writing.

'Second, equipment failure is another time robber to be noticed. For example, if the technology system in a technology-based firm fails, then it will cost the company millions of dollars.

'Failure' is a concept here, so no article. 'Down' does not collocate well with 'fail'. 'Because of this problem' is redundant, since you already mentioned failure.

Third, many people spend time inefficiently because of poor communication. For instance, a business firm loses both a good customer and revenue whenever it can not reach an agreement in renewing its contract. However, the company will become more successful if its employees are skilled at communication.

'With the important customer' is redundant because you have already mentioned the 'good customer'. The company here is a single entity, hence 'its' not 'their'.

'Finally, interruptions are important time robbers. They can consume your time and may cause you a lot of trouble. A person good at time management will be successful in his career.

'Will meet a good life and always walk on the right way to achieve their dream than others' is very vague and nonbusinesslike in English. My replacement phrase is only tentative. I hope that MountainHiker and others will be along to check and revise my initial suggestions.
Mister Micawber,

There is a lot of work here in this section, so any and all help is appreciated!
