"Time = Life. Therefore, waste your time and waste your life, or master your time and master your life." ― Alan Lakein (Time Management Guru)
There are days when you have worked continuously from morning till evening, yet could not complete your work. Have you wondered why this happens? It is because you have not prioritized your task and managed your time in an organized manner. Remember that one of the most important commodities that can never be bought at the supermarket is "TIME"!
You are bound to get out of focus when there is so little time and you have so much to do. Hence, for efficient time management, it is important to set priorities and meet deadlines. When you start prioritizing things, you would notice that there is enough time for all the crucial activities in life.
Neither the rich nor the poor can store time. The quota of 24 hours is given to all men. The main difference between fame and failure lies in how one uses their time skillfully. Hence, time management is all about wise usage of what time is available
Remember that time is needed for each and every activity that you undertake. You should know how to divide your waking hours among the various activities of the day. This would ensure that a task is completed and the time used is accounted for.
