  • Commit to keep Your Schedule!

         Until you value yourself, you won't value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything productive with it.                    - M. Scott Peck
         This is a topic familiar to almost every individual irrespective of social, economical, educational, regional .. backgrounds.
    ‘No Time' is something we hear in atleast 2 out of 3 conversations let the conversation be at the school, in a friendly chat, at the market yard or at office. And, each one of us, at one point in time or other, have tried (or have been trying) to do ‘something' about better utilizing time. Most importantly, each one of us already have a method, a technique, an approach and/ or a perception about ‘time'.
        Having said this, I did not want to spend too much of time (or words) on this topic but yes, would like to share with you a few guidelines or techniques on “Time Management”.
                         "The key is in not spending time, but in investing it"
                                                                                       - Stephen R. Covey
        Time management is not exactly about managing time but mostly about managing task(s). Probably, it's been referred to as Time Management as there is a definite limit to the time available as compared to the number of tasks or amount of work one need to handle. Time Management in fact is an outcome of several activities for example, how well the task is understood, how well it is planned to handle the task, how well the plan is executed and how well the outcome is assessed as compared to a desired, anticipated or expected outcome.
        Many people are discouraged from trying to learn new knowledge or skills, spend time with family and friends, go to visit a place or roam around and so on so forth because of time issues. They already feel that their lives are too busy and they don't see how it is possible to fit more commitments into their already jammed schedules.
           Other people take an overly easy-going approach towards similar things. Both types of people described above might benefit from improving their time management and organization skills.
           The first type of people (who believes that they are "too busy" and cannot afford to take-up any thing new) might actually be able to make the necessary time available if they try to tag a value to the things they are doing and the things they want to do. This will help figuring out whether new things might be more important than other current commitments, and then, if found that the new things have more value, a conscious and careful re-arrangement of current commitments and responsibilities so as to move aside things that are less important and make room for learning. Normally scheduled events (like preparing dinner or paying bills or child care) might be able to be put off for a while or given over to someone else in the family so as to make room for sparing time for ‘the new things' being planned.

          The second type of people (who has an overly easy-going approach) might do much better in their already chosen programs/skill/activity/job if they actually set a priority & importance to them. We need to realize that many things can be accomplished in life when their value is known, the importance (rather need) is identified & are accordingly prioritized and then take them seriously enough to see that they get done in a timely manner.
          Time management skills boil down to awareness, organization and commitment. You need to become aware of record everything you're doing so that important things get done on time and nothing bothers you at a crucial time. You also need to commit to keeping your schedule, and not wandering off when something more momentarily interesting occurs. Time management and organization skills are applicable to a wide range of life tasks you might decide to take on. They will benefit you broadly in whatever you might do.
           The awareness part of time management corresponds to self-monitoring methods. In this case, what you need to self-monitor are your commitments and how much time you spend on them. Commitments are appointments, or things you have to do like every-day-jobs, or attending a class. They are also the things you choose to do when you are avoiding your actual commitments (such as spending time hanging out with your friends).
           Some commitments are predictable and follow a formal schedule, while others are informal and occur more spontaneously. You have explicit commitments (like classes, assignments and interviews) and also implicit commitments (like the time you'll need to put in studying for tests, or researching and preparing presentations). Make sure you schedule time for both commitment types!
             There never seems to be enough time to do everything. Time is something we all have in common. It does not matter how hard we try, we really can't “save” time or “buy” time. However, it is possible to learn to “spend” our time wisely to avoid “losing” on time. The goal of time management should not be to find more time, but use the available time more effectively. The goal is to set a reasonable amount of time to do things and then use that time wisely.
