It only feels like we had just entered January and skipped to February. That literally is how fast the year has gone already, it’s just ticked away right before our own eyes. Do you feel like you need more time? Do you wish you had more time?
Think of it this way – You are sitting in an exam, on the paper, it says that you have 2 hours. Everybody has the same 2 hours, no more and no less. One person uses time well and answers all the questions but the other person just sits there figuring out what to do. All of a sudden the invigilator says “Time up”. Both of you had the same 2 hours but one used time and one wasted time. On exam results day, it was evident to see. Do you want to be the person who uses the time to their advantage or do you want to be the person who sees time tick by?
When I was young, I had this precept that I could wait and do things the next day. It was like that for a while until I met one of my associates who said this to me – “Time waits for no man, Time doesn’t respect anyone, it just goes tic toc. What you do with it is down to you”
I will admit, they were some wise words indeed, they have been lodged in my memory up until now.
All of us can’t complain that we don’t have enough time, in fact, we have 24 hours in a day every day of the week. The only thing is what do we do with it? If you asked someone what they do with their time, this will indicate why they say ‘If I only had another hour or if the day could be extended’.
How do you view time? Can you manage your time well?
I want to introduce a time management tool which will help greatly
Above is the Eisenhower matrix. It helps us identify and structure our time a lot better. When I was first introduced to this concept I found out that there are things that I do which were time-consuming, they weren’t beneficial for me so I cut them out and I found that I had more time than I thought. Try it out for yourself. You will be amazed at the results.
There are some things in life that we have to do and there are some things that we don’t have to do. In between that, some balance is needed. Ask yourself this question – Do I really need to do it? I did this once and it changed my life
Time is one of our greatest investments. When you invest in yourself and spend time investing in you, you will reap the benefits. Let’s start investing time into something worthwhile.
Let’s stop regretting the time we have wasted. We can’t get it back
Time is precious, Time is our greatest resource.
