Time Management

List on MLS sell my house

You know how essential it is respect time. Read these quotations and fortify it.

“Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.”

“Lost, yesterday, somewhere between Sunrise and Sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered, for they are gone forever.”

And the one your mother must have told you a thousand times:

“Time nor tide wait for any man”

Everyday tips to save your precious time:

  • Find out where you’re wasting time: All of us kill time on some useless activities. For me, it is surfing the internet. Try keeping a stopwatch or alarm. Nowadays, compared to my 90 minutes on the internet have come down to 30 minutes.
  • Eating time: Don’t spend hours eating on the table, grab a quick bite and get back to work. You cannot do this for every meal everyday, but do it when possible.
  • Grocery Store: Keep a list handy, so that you don’t miss out on things and also save time.
  • Social Engagements: Go to only the ones you really want to or have to go. Parties really kill time in my opinion, as you spend an hour (or more for girls) dressing up etc. And! Even if you come back early you will keep thinking about the party (“They must be now dancing, wish I was there” and all those thoughts). So you cannot even study after a party.
  • Subscribe to Blogs: So that you don’t go strolling from blog to blog to check for new content.
  • Don’t waste time waiting: You can murder your time by doing so. Make sure you have the timings right of a lecture or meeting.

Also, remember to create a timetable and to set goals.

    Rocking post. Time management is a must for anyone to be successful in their ventures. You can taste small successes, but cannot build up on it if you are not good at managing your time.

    You’ll see a lot of people saying that they don’t care about managing time, or they are bad at it and still successful – but the fact is that they are small successes, and you may not build up on them.

    To build up, one has to be organized, planned & has to work on ideas, believing in oneself, and one’s potential.

    Cheers! 😀

    P.S : I like the countdown 😛

    This is not relevant to everyone, thus am posting as a comment.
    I used to spend a lot of time on the net, but now despite having two blogs and being active on two forums i manage to finish everything in 30minutes. I plan on which days i will blog, post on the forums etc etc.
    Try making a plan like this and it should work. :)

    Great post :) *as usual*

    You forgot, “Time is money” 😉

    As you said one must learn to respect time. I loved the second quote.

  4. Caroline says:

    Conversely it is nice just to be able to spend time, if there is something you enjoy doing you want to do it for as long as possible. If you enjoy it it’s not wasting time.

  5. Logo Design says:

    Conventional wisdom fails to understand that operating
    in a time-limited mode involves significantly different
    behavior and attitudes from operating in a goods-limited mode.

    Thanks a lot for the great tips you shared with us to save my t1mE 😉

    Actually in my opinion, life is too short for “not” spending it 😀
    Work and party should be part of it. So no, I won’t put my fun behind.
    But I agree with the organization part. If we keep time organized and managed, everything will be much easier.

    The blog is pretty nice ^^

  8. Time is really precious and we should all learn to manage time effectively. This post on Time management really helps how to analyze where we have wasted our precious time, and the necessary action needed to correct this.

  9. Roshni says:

    I actually also agree that you must spend time doing stuff you enjoy.

  10. I got to agree with LadyInRed. I will not forgo my meal time for work. We need to reward ourselves for working hard in the day and have a relax and enjoyable meal with our love ones. To me, time is most well spent when I am with my loved ones.

  21. Chevy trucks says:

  22. yah! time management is important. it can fall things into place.

  23. Time is really valuable.^_^

  24. Ryan says:

    I think task and todo lists are crucial in successful time management. You just have to work out a system and stick to it – give it a chance and don’t give up after a week. You also need to work out what barriers are movable and which are not, i.e. you need to work around them and not waste time changing them. Some people are flexible, others aren’t.

  25. Most important is to be organized and all goals are written down, its a lot easier because you have a constant reminder instead of all your thoughts in your mind.. And of course for every achieved goal you must reward yourself.

  26. blogwalking is not wasting time isnt? :), nice post btw, thx for reminding :)

  27. Marshall says:

    I save time by listing down my “to-do” list every morning. It’s also a matter of discipline. If you tolerate yourself by not sticking to the allocated time for a specific task or activity, then it will eventually turn out to be a habit. If things go wrong, you can never go back in time, but just move on and iron things out in the process. Learn to value time. :)

  28. Rehaan says:

    “Time is money”, that quote is very true.
    Very nice clock at the top :-)

  29. Bella says:

    Procrastinating definitely kills time. Also, when you start a task or activity, don’t leave it hanging. Don’t go to the next until a task is completed. When you’re not organized, it messes up quality time as well. :)

  36. One goal is to help yourself become aware of how you use your time
    as one resource in organizing, prioritizing, and succeeding in your studies in the context of competing activities of friends, work, family, etc.

  37. And yes being aware of time you are big step in front of the others..

  41. used tires says:

    Those are great quotes! I know personally from time to time, I always try to schedule my time, and to look ahead to see just how much free time I will have to do the things I want to do. Otherwise.. without organization, it’s like going threw a day blind in a way… you know what you want to do.. but you don’t know if you will finish it all. This is important especially for school assignments, and studying for exam (I am a university student).

    Till then,


  42. Kovich says:

    One of my biggest problems is using my time wisely. I often find myself getting sidetracked or wandering off course, which in turn slows down my productivity. It’s important to figure out where you’re wasting time and eliminate them. However, you also need to make sure that once you have as much time as possible, you’re using it in the best way possible. It doesn’t matter if you have an entire week to do work if you never do it. :)

  46. I have been good with getting my projects done on time, but how I get there is another story. I need to work on my time management skills.

  47. Great article. In my time management coaching I see people falling for these mistakes everyday. And changing even one of them makes a big difference. When my clients and readers change several, they gain 5, 10 even 20 hours a week. The trick though is that while these things seem simple when written in an article, they are hard to do. And hard to maintain. I suggest a great starting point is to know where your time goes now. Track your time for 2 weeks and see what insights you get.

    Thanks for the comment!
    Yes, the clock is nice :)
