Knowing how to manage time is the secret weapon of successful people
Time is the only resource we have. As trivial as it may seem, we cannot get time back once it has passed, and learning how to use it to the fullest can ease that sense of frustration, which comes from the awareness that "time does not forgive". When a person recognises the true value of time, he somehow manages to correct himself and he tries to change his attitude in order to better manage his everyday tasks. Indeed, each thing we do takes time. When we say this, we refer not only to our work world, but also to everyday life. Grocery shopping, paying a bill, driving in heavy traffic or being on the phone are all time-consuming activities. Being aware of how much time it takes to complete a certain task or being aware of how much time we waste every day on small things, is the first step towards better time management. Using our time well brings with it considerable advantages. So it is important to talk about it. Among the benefits of efficient time management is the positive psycho-physical impact. Knowing that we have completed all your commitments on time has a profound effect on our well-being. We are happier and more satisfied with ourselves when we are in control of our time.
Conversely, how much frustration do we generate by procrastinating indefinitely, simply because we are disorganised or don’t know how to do something? Everything we postpone or don’t do accumulates and brings down our mood, leading to more serious problems, such as apathy.
Meanwhile, the feeling of having everything under control is really powerful. You feel at peace and in harmony, knowing that you have done everything you wanted to do. Learning to manage time is not an impossible feat, nor is it an easy win, but it is possible. It begins with greater awareness and continues by applying small techniques, as suggested by Brian Tracy.
