How often do you sit and not do anything? How often do you just wander around on the internet trying to spend your time and end up using a few good hours from your day on useless surfing, without getting any smarter than before?
Time and money!
I feel that people who tend to put time and money in the same sentence don’t really realize the true value of it. Money is something that comes and goes, while time goes and never comes back. One can always get money back in one way or another, but once the few moments leave our “account” of life, they never return, no matter how much effort we put in to turn the clock back. So in reality, time and money are two different things. When you start measuring your time with money, you care less about people and more about the materialistic side of things without even knowing about it.
How to use your time wisely?
Always plan out your day. No matter what you do in life, either you are a student or work as a professional in some company. If you do not plan out your day and your time wisely, you will end up doing absolutely nothing. Actually a person who plans his/her time gets a lot more time on their hands at the end of the day. Because such a person has learned the value of each and every minute in their life.
Choose your battles
You don’t always have to say yes to every single thing you are requested to do in life. This goes for family, and work. You might want to save the world, but there is only certain things you can do in the limited time you have every day. Pick and choose, and focus on yourself. At the end of the day, use a few minutes to think through your day and what you achieved and what you gained through the various things you spent your time on. If there is something you feel you shouldn’t have used your time on, well next time don’t, and instead use it on something wiser.
