Everyone has enough time in life, but the real meaning of time differs from one another. Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend. Lifetime is like a clock which ticks on until you stop it. Time is more precious than anything in life, but what is really important is how you spend it.
When you say spending, money also comes in the way. A mistake in spending money can often be rectified, but time spent without a goal is lost forever.
Leonardo da Vinci, one of the most prominent personalities in the history of Western art, said: “Time stays long enough for anyone who will use it.”
On occasions, we find time is too short. When we are idle, we feel the wait is long or boring.
How do you determine what time is? Is it defined by cycle of seasons, the sun and the moon or the ticking of the second hand on a noisy wall-clock or a wristwatch? Does time restrict our lives or help us keep our life more organised?
It is difficult to describe time because its definition depends on the way people perceive it.
The world’s perspective on time is diverse as its population since the concept of time is affected by our feelings, beliefs and cultures.
Planning is one of the most encouraging and useful strategies to help people realise the value of time and achieve time management.
It is essential to meet people’s needs as daily actions step with time and money.
With careful planning, it would be much easier to adjust plans and
avoid any kind of problems rather
than dealing with it in unexpected time.
Sometimes you feel stressed out from the daily busy routine and you want to find ways to do less and enjoy your time.
Benjamin Franklin, an American scientist, inventor, statesman, philosopher and economist, once said: “Do you love life? Then do not squander time, for that’s the stuff that life is made of.”
We see people wearing very expensive watches, but they don’t give a care for time as much they do for the price of their watches. In fact, most of those people wear watches that cost thousands of rials just for prestige or to show off.
On the other hand, there are others who don’t like wearing watches at all, but they are very punctual and they really care about time. They can manage their time without having this device.
Punctuality is not something tangible we can see in electronic devices like watches, clocks or even mobiles. It is a value and moral that many people today ignore because they don’t appreciate the real value of time.
With good time management skills, you will be in control of time and life as well as maintaining balance between work, personal life and family responsibilities. Never say you don’t have enough time.
You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to all great personalities like Helen Keller, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci and Albert Einstein. Like the adage states, “Time and tide waits for no man.”
