Time Management is self management

The buzzword is manage time, but can we manage time. We just have 24 hours in a day and we cannot create more time for ourselves. We have to discipline ourselves to manage our life so that we run on time. It is more of self management than time management. Daily work can simply be tiring but if we know how to distribute our time to all the work, life will be more joyous and less stressful. We concentrate more on unnecessary stuffs than useful ones. That is the reason most people run short of time.

Get up early in the morning plan the whole day and write down the exact time required to complete the work. You will be amazed that you still have time left for your family and friends. Most of the time we are busy doing stuffs which can be done tomorrow or checking mails, answering phone calls or just face booking to have recent updates of friends. Here prioritization is the key, do what is most important and then leave the rest. This will help you in saying “No” to people who want you to do their remaining work.

Have a cool head so that you take decisions judiciously and are open to new ideas and new learning's. With the advancement of technology new ways have been devised to do certain works which saves lots of man hours. So you need to be updated. Learn more, read more, instead of gossiping check out ways of doing your work more effectively to save time. Be a role model to others so that they can learn from you.

Discipline your life and it will get easy to manage those 24 hours and complete your most important work on time. Never say you don't have time. Every one got those 24 hours, some created history while rest kept complaining and nagging till the end of their life. You will come across a lot of people who will spend hours talking and joking but have little time to do most important work. The problem is with prioritization.

Things change when we are ready to change and move out of our comfort zone. This is only possible when we stretch ourselves beyond a limit and say “ Yes i will utilize my time to the fullest”, I will not waste my time. That is the only way to maximize potential and get the best work done in 24 hours time.
