Don’t manage time
Tick tock, tick tock, time is far spent 24 hours, 1,440 minutes, 86,400 seconds in a day, have you ever wished you had more than 24 hours in a day, so you can do all that you want to do, more time to read, more time to play, more time so you can hit the gym, more time to practice, extra time to spend with your loved ones.
In the long run it is the same time we have with all the beautiful people we love their lives on instagram, on a serious note all those people that skydive, live on islands, bungee jump, how many hours do they have in a day.
I was talking with my brother once and we took ourselves on a mental journey imagining the rich could buy time from poorer people, or you could share your time with your friend, or imagine robber attack , “everybody on the floor” “you move I shoot” but they don’t take your money, gold, cars but they take your time. Like two weeks out of your life. Corrupt government official don’t steal money from their constituency, as a matter of fact they give them money and steal their time.
Imagine, but unfortunately that is what we allow when we don’t effectively utilize our time.
You can’t manage time, we all have 24 hours in a day, you can’t change that, but you can manage the events the events in your life in relation to time. You can choose what you do with your time.
When you effectively utilize your time
- You are more productive
- You are less stressed
- you Reduce anxiety
- You feel good about yourself
3 Techniques to effective time Utilization
WAKE UP EARLY:
Growing up under my mum, you didn’t have a choice about this, if you sleep 5:59 am, you’d still have to be up by 6am.but it’s a habit I thank her for now If you cultivate the habit of waking up early, you will be able to achieve more in a day than the person that didn’t. mornings are always a good time to get work done, less noise, calm, less crowded, depends on the area you live though.
ANALYZE WHAT TAKES MOST OF YOUR TIME AND SET PRIORITIZE
If you do an audit of your time, you will see what takes most of your time, mine is instagram and twitter, and it also takes my data and money too. When you this, it is easier to do away with it or at least make efforts to do away with it.
Don’t major on your minor, and minor on your major, “why is water wet? you cannot change that. its good if you take a pen now and write the things that are priorities in your life, and how much of the day will be apportioned to it, it is good you do this so you won’t spend most of your time doing the things that are not productive to your life, or the things that bring joy to your life.
FINISH YOUR DAY BEFORE YOU START IT:
how? PLAN! Finish your day on paper before the beginning of the day, after setting your priorities, it is essential to make a to do list, it could be daily, weekly, monthly or even all of them depends on the individual just be careful not to make of list of things you can’t do. This list help you run through the day with a mindset of what to do at what time, and how to do it.
In whatever way you choose to use your time, ensure it brings your happiness, joy, fulfillment, because you can actually sell your time, we actually all sell our time, you can’t eat time. But when selling your time ensure it enables you to live, because everyone dies, but not everyone lives.
