Managing Our Time

Quote:

 

“Determine never to be idle.  No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time that never loses any.  It is wonderful how much can be done if we are always doing”.  –Thomas Jefferson

“Managing Our Time”

 

About Topic:

 

Time is a very precious commodity that each of us have.  Once our time is gone, it is gone; we cannot call it back.  Our accomplishments or the lack thereof is a reflection of how we have managed the events for which our time has been spent.  How do we spend our time?  Are we as efficient as we would like to be, or do we waste a lot of time?  Do we realize that when one minute is wasted every day, then we have lost almost 6.5 hours per year?  That is just for one wasted minute every day.  This message is not advocating a strict rigid adherence to a schedule; rather, it is to show the dynamics of how fast time slips away from us. So how much time do we feel we waste?

 

Importance of Topic:

 

Winston Churchill once said, “He who fails to plan is planning to fail.”  The question is why is it so powerful to plan our day?  The answer lies in the culmination of several points of human psychology.  Modern psychological research has shown in a number of studies that willpower is an exhaustible resource.  This concept know as ego-depletion suggests that increasing productivity lies not in an increased effort, but a methodical application of strategy such that the day does not require constant willpower.
