The Importance of Time Management
by: Spencer Russell
When the subject comes of time management, most people have a small understanding of how time works; however, once learned, one can use time to their advantage. Time management is a key that forms the way that one uses life.
First, to understand how to use time management to one’s advantage the aspect of how time management works. Time management is using time to further one’s life by working less hours and having more time as a result. Time management has many uses in everyday life. Time management is used in schools by planning what time which class will be going on at a certain time of the day, or at workplaces with scheduled work hours. Time management also works a life guide. This aspect of time helps to create a path for one’s day–carving out a habit and lifestyle for one to follow. Also, time management makes a strict regimen for one to follow and not change. Managing one’s time also can liberate the mind from limitations. For example, time management frees up one’s mind from unnecessary clutter that scatters thoughts. Time management can also give clarity of mind. By creating a schedule, time management clears the mind to focus on other things of more importance. The understanding of time management is an important aspect of creating a proper use of time; moreover, how to use time management properly is an entirely different aspect.
Secondly, the use of time management is yet another aspect of time management. First, by clearing one’s schedule from unnecessary activities, time management gives the essence of free time. Removing all clutter from life is the first place to start for achieving the desired outcome of one’s life. Another part to clearing one’s schedule is to focus on one specific goal or task at a time to keep focused on having extra time. The second thing to do is to schedule time for taking any actions. By living according to a planner, time management makes one have a plan of action to follow every day. Also, doing everything with a plan forces one to not change the system in which they have setup but to instead follow the system without any modifications. Finally, by creating a definitive path to follow everyday will help dramatically in one’s life. This can be attained by creating an ‘A1, B2. C3’ chart which has one write down the tasks that must be done that day and listing them from greatest under the ‘A1’ section, to the least important in the ‘C3’ section. Another way to attain time management mastery is by executing the definitive plan without excuses. By doing these three actions, one can master the art of time management and unlock its full results.
Achieving mastery of time management has many results attached to it that can increase one’s potential. First, time management gives freedom of life from stress. This happens by relieving one of the worry of having idle time wasted on nothing. Also when the stress of an overly filled schedule comes, it leaves because of the mastery of time management. Secondly, it dramatically frees one’s time. Time can become a burden releaser with the proper management of time as well as move one’s life in a care free way from stress. Lastly, the mastery of time management takes away time bondage. Time management creates clear schedules for one to use in order to amass free time. This is also gives the ability to life by design instead of time. Once many understand time management, life as it is known will become freer instead of more enslaved by time.
Weather for good or evil, time management can be the key to forming one’s life path. Starting on the path of understanding and mastering time management will lead one to a life of freedom and longevity.
