So today’s article is not going to be technical anymore. While I preparing for my exams, learning new things, doing gaming, and all I felt that I wasn’t able to manage all this stuff together, so many things get crashed. So many times I got confused about what should I do first or do later. Then at that time, I got introduce to the concept of time management. And I learn so many things from that so in this article I’m gone share with you all, what is time management and how much it put effect in your life.
Whether we assign a million value to it or not, time is valuable to us. Think about it: How much of your typical work week do you spend stressed about not having enough time to complete a task or reach a goal?
There are lots of different ways to tackle the issue of time management — you can download apps, adjust your sleep time, create lists, etc. But if you don’t fully understand why it’s important for you to better manage your time, those apps and lists aren’t going to help you. If you don’t have the motivation to use them, you won’t.
Ask yourself which activity is more important and how much time should be allocated to the same? Know which work should be done earlier and which can be done a little later.
You can get started by reviewing these 7 reasons time management is crucial:
- Time is limited: No matter how you slice it, there are only 24 hours in a day. That applies to you, and to your co-worker who only seems able to do half the amount of work you do. But it also applies to the former coworker who consistently accomplishes more than you, and was promoted as a result. If you want to rise through the ranks, you have to acknowledge the importance of finding a way to manage this limited resource.
- You can accomplish more with less effort: When you learn to take control of your time, you improve your ability to focus. And with increased focus comes enhanced efficiency, because you don’t lose momentum. You’ll start to breeze through tasks more quickly (the workday will also seem to fly by).
- Improved decision-making ability: Whether you rely on a time-chunking technique or discover the power of list-making, you’ll soon find that a nice side benefit of good time management skills is the ability to make better decisions. When you feel pressed for time and have to make a decision, you’re more likely to jump to conclusions without fully considering every option. That leads to poor decision making. Through effective time management, you can eliminate the pressure that comes from feeling like you don’t have enough time. You’ll start to feel calmer and in control.
- Learning opportunities are everywhere: Obviously, the more you learn, the more valuable you are to your employer. And great learning opportunities are around you if you’ve got time to stop and take advantage of them. When you work more efficiently, you have that time.
- become more successful in your career: Time management is the key to success. It allows you to take control of your life rather than following the flow of others. As you accomplish more each day, make more sound decisions, and feel more in control, people notice.
- Reduce stress. When you don’t have control of your time, it’s easy to end up feeling rushed and overwhelmed. And when that happens, it can be hard to figure out how long it’s going to take to complete a task. Once you learn how to manage your time, you no longer subject yourself to that level of stress. Besides it being better for your health, you have a clearer picture of the demands on your time.
- Free time is necessary. Everyone needs time to relax and unwind. Unfortunately, though, many of us don’t get enough of it. Between jobs, family responsibilities, errands, and upkeep on the house and the yard, most of us are hard-pressed to find even 10 minutes to sit and do nothing. Having good time management skills helps you find that time.
Looking through the list above, it’s easy to see the multiplicative effect of time management. Good time management allows you to accomplish more in a shorter period, which leads to more free time, which lets you take advantage of learning opportunities, lowers your stress, and helps you focus, which leads to more career success. Each benefit of time management improves another aspect of your life. All you have to do is get the cycle started.
And remember one thing, guys,
Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back
