What Time Is It?
When your parents ask you, "When will you start studying?" do you respond with any of the following statements?
♦ "It's too early!"
♦ "I'm not yet ready!"
♦ "I have to find my notes!"
It just seems like it's never the right time, doesn't it? Never right enough to follow a healthy diet or exercise, or sort the desk, complete your homework, or spend time with family or start studying for the upcoming exams.
And then where is the time to speak the truth, to own up, to apologize and mend broken friendships and relationships? But if not for all this, what do we have the time for right now?
There are big things in life and then there are little things. And we need to accomplish everything in this one lifetime.
Prioritizing is hence very important.
Learning to prioritize, i.e., filtering essential tasks from the trivial ones isn't easy. You will find below an easy way to start:
♦ Sort Yourself - Usually the muddle is not in the room or desk or school bag. It's in the mind. What you see around you is a reflection of what goes on within you.
♦ You don't need anyone else to make timetables for you.
♦ Homework, class assignments, studies, exercise and family are always important. These are the big things that you ideally should always budget for. The little things can always be squeezed in once the big ones are sorted.
♦ We don't have to work like robots with every minute of our day timed and dedicated to a specific task; however, the clock does exist to remind us that time is always passing and there are things to be done.
