|Using Time Judiciously And Multiplying Available Time
Using Time Judiciously And Multiplying Available Time
Time has three phases, the past, the present and the future. We
all know it pretty well that it is the present that we actually
live in, however most people waste their time in
planning/worrying about the future or thinking about the past.
For example when you have committed some thing wrong some time
back you continue to feel sorry about it for quite some time and
thereby waste lot of time on it unnecessarily.
The very thought coming to your mind that you should not have
done something or why you did it etc. are wasteful thoughts. We
should take a lesson from our past but that is all about it. By
thinking about whatever you have already done, things cannot be
changed in any case so why to think about that continuously.
Past is past, there is no point in regretting about it or
feeling bad about it. We should think what can now be done and
what should be done.
In the same manner we lose lot of time in mere dreaming about
the future. I am reminded of a story, which I narrate here.
Once a rich farmer was very happy with his servant whose name
was Sheikh Chilli. He gave him a pot of milk as reward. As
Sheikh Chilli was not married he thought of selling it off in
the nearby market and make some money. As he was proceeding to
the market he started thinking and planning about future that he
will build for himself with this money. He calculated that he
would get two Anna's (measure of money at that time) with this
milk in the market. He planned that he would buy little gram
with that money which he will sell it to workers in the fields
in afternoon along with free water. He will further buy gram
with what he would get and one day he will be having enough
money to buy a cow. After buying cow he will sell all the milk
in the local market reaping large profits. After few months he
would have enough money and will marry Ramu's daughter who lives
nearby. He would soon have children and grand children. He will
be very happy then and there would be no need to work for him
then. He will just relax whole day and if anybody asked him to
do any thing he will shake his head in negative. He shook his
head as if he was actually in the future and the pot came down
spilling all the milk he was carrying. With that all his plans
came to end and he lost what he had in hand.
I would like to add here that it is only present moment that you
live in. Tomorrow never comes and when it comes it becomes today
so just learn the art of living your today to perfection and you
Manage Your Time Well: I wish I had 48 hours a day! But god has
given us only 24 hours. There is too much of job pressure on me!
How do I do it! Is there a way out?
Well you can still do it by managing your available time well.
Usually, there is not much you can do about the amount of work
that needs to be done. But there is a way; you can increase the
effective time available to you.
A recent time management study by the University of Leicester,
in England, found that for every hour we spend working only 30
minutes are actually productive work. The rest of the time, we
waste on little or no value tasks. The study also found that
most people worked in short bursts followed by periods of
waiting, distraction or mini-breaks. Just think: If you could do
two hour's worth of work every hour, you would be able to pack
48 hours into each day! It does not require much of practice
just a little planning will do you good. The first thing to
remember is that you cannot afford to waste time in waiting at
any point of time. I will like to give an illustration to
explain this point. I was to meet some body and I had taken
prior appointment for it. To my dismay when I reached at
appointed time I was asked to wait for an hour as the dignitary,
to whom I had gone to meet, came to office one hour late due to
delay in his flight. The delay was obviously beyond his control
and I cannot blame him for that but what do I do for next one
hour, I truly did not know. There was one another gentle man who
was also in the waiting. To my amazement he took out his writing
pad and started writing letters. In one hour of waiting period
he wrote at-least five letters. It was an eye opener incidence
for me. You can similarly utilize such time over which you
otherwise have little control.
