Time Management




Dear friends,
A man who dares waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life. 
Charles Darwin 
Time management is an art of managing time effectively and efficiently. Time Management plays an important role for each and every one but it is highly essential for the student’s life. One of the best metaphors for a student’s life is that of a circus performer who balances many plates in the air at once. The plates twirl precariously top poles as the harried performer works frantically to keep them in motion and aloft. Patience, perseverance, practice and planning are all necessary for performing the trick successfully. It is really a great debate now days whether time is money or not? In my point of view, it is really very true that time is absolutely money. Effective management of time is the ultimate way of managing our commitment, dedications, deadlines, quotas, Girlfriends, customers, balance between personal ism and professionalism etc.Time is very much precious for each and every one in our society. Let us take the examples of importance of time in the life of different professionals from home to office. The best and first example is the life style of a house wife. She has to be alert from the dawn of the morning to the death of the night. At the outset of the morning. She has to accomplish the daily work of the house and then she has to make the children prepared for the school. Next she has to help her husband to be prepared for the office and she has to think about all the belongings of the husband which needs to be with him for the office. So a house wife has to be always in time. If she is not able to deliver the work in time, the entire family will be disorganized and disturbed. So it is equally important for the students, teachers, parents, working ladies, a school bus driver etc. .So management of the limited time and having unlimited advantage is quite difficult but the difficulty can be turned into easier task if the time is manipulated and utilized effectively and efficiently.

Time is………….
Too Slow for those who Wait,
Too Swift for those who fear,
Too Long for those who Grieve,
Too Short for those who Rejoice,
But for those who Love
Time is like honey.
     - Henry Van Dyke
It is really rightly mentioned by the author about the nature and beauty of the time. It is up to the person how he or she is taking in to his or her disposal. So to use the time effectively, one has to be in love with the time. So the compulsion of using time will be turned in to passion which will add great mileage to the proper use of the time to accomplish the pre-planed deadlines.
Until you value yourself, you will not value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.
M. Scott Peck
Every body has the desire to achieve something in life. To achieve anything in life, one has to value one’s time decently. So it will be an instrument to be successful and valuable in each and every spare of life.
 Time = life; therefore, waste your time and waste of your life, or master your time and master your life.
Alan Lakein
So let us come to the technical aspects of the time management. It is highly crucial to know tools and techniques for the proficient use of the time management.
The Present
Yesterday is History
Tomorrow’s a Mystery
But today is a Gift
That’s why they call it
The present
 SO let us know the techniques of the use of time management. We must be aware about both of our personal and professional objectives in a week, month, quarter and year .so we need to prepare our plan according to the most prioritized objectives of our professional and personal goal. So we need to maintain the work sheet keeping our all responsibilities in front of our eyes. One can make a weekly or monthly or yearly plan but the plan must be weekly to make the planning into the actions. It is realized most of the time that monthly, quarterly or yearly plan fail to be implemented in the individual level due to different contingencies. So it is suggested to use the weekly worksheet plan to use for the gratification of the planning.

So friends we have got limited resources of time in our hand but we have the unlimited wants to be accomplished. we need to divide our objectives and prioritize the dead lines. We must give emphasis on the objectives according to the importance and urgencies. One must be very much careful in using the time of a day because one is exchanging a day of his life at the cost of the utility of the time.
