It is an old and famous saying that, “Time and tide wait for none”. So, it is very important to optimally utilise the time and avoid procrastinating.

In universities, time management skills are taught because our life is essentially a race against time. The time is one of the most precious resources available to us. And we have many projects on hand to complete within short time. Hence prioritization of work is important in order to avoid waste of time.

Procrastination is common and wide spread in schools and colleges. Students neglect their studies during their school term and wait till the last minute to prepare for examinations. They spend great deal of time in playing games, chatting, outing, watching movies and unnecessary shopping thereby they lose track of time and land panicking in the examination hall in the last moment and don’t fare well.

Toppers usually are consistent in their studies. They manage the right balance between studies and play. They are well prepared for the exams and perform well. They never panic at the last moment.

Time is just like a river; it keeps flowing forward and never turns back. You may delay your work and wait for the last minute to complete your tasks at hand, but time will continue to move forward.

Farmers keep a close watch of time and follow strict schedules for ploughing, planting and harvesting. Their schedules are according to the weather. If they delay their planting or harvesting time it will result into a disaster for them and the losses  so sustained are irreparable.

Everyone must value the time and not misuse it. As per a famous and old saying, “To realize the value of one year, ask a student who failed an examination. To realize the value of one month, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby. To realize the value of one minute, ask a person who just missed his train.

In nutshell, to realize the value of one second, ask someone who just escaped from an accident. Time is the most precious resource.  Even one second of our life is valuable. So, don’t waste it. Respect the time and the time respects you.
