Time and time again we hear about this thing called time management. It’s usually a well thought out ideology that if you manage your time than you would be able to work things out accordingly. However, it is quite that simple when numerous tasks have to be completed and when under the constraints of time it is clearly something that we cannot manage ourselves. “So much to do so little time” (sound familiar?).
Through trial and error, time hasn’t always been a friend. Time has sometimes fallen short on. Time has in other respects came too soon or lasted too long. Is it time that we should be frustrated with? Should our priorities be to blame? Priorities have always been a friend that we could never get close to. Priorities have been that person that never got along with our arch enemy “procrastination”. My friend procrastination has always been good to us. Procrastination constantly whispers “don’t worry you have plenty of time“, “you can enjoy yourself and get your work done later”, “there are plenty of chances”. Well I’ll be the first to say that procrastination has been good to you but is it good for you?
The biggest questions of them all are:
· How much time do you have?
· What do you need to get done?
· What is most important?
I still go back and forth with the answers to these questions and I’m learning more and more each “time” I try. But, the worst feeling to ever have is to know that it’s too late or that time is up. I would encourage that you maxmize the time you have wisely while guiding yourself and the company you keep.
“There is never enough time to do everything, but there is always enough time to do the most important thing.” Brian Tracy
