Time is precious
27 February 2018 | Education
There is nothing that is more expensive and non-refundable like time. This is something we as the young generation need to understand in order for us to succeed and unlock our potential. Every day, we spend too much time on the wrong things and this affects our progress negatively.
Working hard can only taking you this far. The real work comes in with using your time to make sure you execute all you have planned yourself and better. It is not easy managing your time especially when you are preoccupied with a lot of responsibilities and tasks from your day to day life. However, with a practise and establishing a set routine, it is possible.
As we grow older, we need to understand that lost time can never be returned because opportunities that were presented once will not be presented again. Sometimes, when we waste our time on matters that are unproductive, we lose out on so many great things. Working on focused goals will help with achieving greatness and everything shall come together well.
So how can I manage my time? Create a routine for yourself by working consistently. Putting in work for 6 months can put you ahead for at least two years in your life. Although it can be frustrating and you would much rather work with spontaneity, sometimes you can prepare yourself for at least something small. Planning is very important and it can take you a long.
It is difficult for some people to work with planning to the final detail, but this is necessary to avoid wasting time and not achieving whatever you had planned for yourself that set time frame. You can start by planning little by little. Creating a short to-do list for the day is possible. Once you are in the routine of things, you can create another list for the week and before you know it, you have control over your life.
Once you have mastered the art of time management, you can start creating long and short term goals for yourself. Where do you want to be before 2018 lapses? Where do you see yourself in the next three to five years? Are you happy with the marks you are getting in school? Are you satisfied with your job? Are you comfortable with the relationship you have with your loved ones? All of these are simple things to ponder about and look at different ways you can improve these areas in your life. Although, I do guarantee you that the journey will be very rocky, you do not have to give up. Nothing comes easy and if you want something really bad, the effort will come naturally.
I wish you all the best and never lose focus on what you have set for yourself.
Until next week!
