do you need more time?

April 12, 2010 5:02am CST
NEARLY ALL OF US FEEL THE PRESSURE OF MODERN LIFE OF NOT BEING ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH EVERyTHING WE WOULD LIKE TO. Almost everywhere people are under pressure to do what must be done- and that may have nothing to do with what is truly important to us. instead, it may have everything to do with meetings the demands of the moment - fixing the car, satisfying the boss, handling unexpected interruption. as you respond to one crisis after another, you may feel you have no control over how your time spent..so what is the remedy?

Very good topic my friend... and before anything else, I am so happy to see your star! Always keep up the good work cherwin! Back here, I would say that is all true.... Every time I am always encountering that, there are so many things needed to be done however I could not handle them all... there is a saying that no one can serve with multiple masters at a time, those things are our masters, yet only few of them could be handled and accomplished at a time. I am just back with my trip to a city miles away from where I lived so I had to leave all my unfinished business here, and now I am trying to make them. Actually I miss mylot so much.... I do not know if everyone here miss me... hahahaha. But this is life... as what you have said, with those things, we have to meet the demands of the moment.... because we could not able to make them all.... if we are going to always think of those things, there would be a pressure that would make us upset... so I guess the only remedy for this is to make a proper time allocation, that's what I am doing now... and always think positive... I will gonna accomplish those things that is very necessary.... say for example, you have your bill now, and you need to pay it or else you would loose electric connection, so you gotta do that first... Have a nice day my friend...

That is it cherwin, the the simplest and the best one.... I have realized that the pressure of the process is hard.... everyday we have to survive, everyday we have to feel the pressure, so the question now is how we will enjoy life? That is hard to answer though, but being happy is how we handle ourselves, of course, despite of those things, we can still say that we are happy, and that's the secret.... and I am still thinking of my new discussion, i hope I can make one later.... God bless my friend...

Time is really short and we can't use the whole 24 hours to do what we have to do. We are human beings and we have to rest for some time. What we just have to do is do the things that could be finished first and be contented on what we have done with our own capabilities and get on with other things life has to offer.

yes i agree with that, time is really short, so we have to spent our time wisely. we spent it with value and not spending it just for wasting of time. be manageable as you can. time is short as well as our life too. so have more time to our family..

Yes, family time is important. Not only ordinary family time but quality time. As I mentioned in one of my responses, we really don't know how we or our loved ones will stay in this world. Show them how important they are to you, and how important you are to them.

I agree basqui my friend.... and it is sad to realize the fact that sometimes we will learn to value our love ones when we already lost them, yes it true, it happens....

yes your right! having a work is needed for your own daily needs, but to much work is not good for not giving your self relaxing. there are many ways how to earn money.

Yes, I feel that way too. It is quite frustrating that I am unable to pursue the things that I am passionate about because of the demands of making ends meet. Even on weekends, the time is not always enough to pursue something... extraneous from my work. What is the remedy? Well, take a short break from work. But it might also mean you'd be spending without earning something in return.

it is easy to find money if you want. if you believe that being relaxing is a waste of time and enjoyment is the replacement of your earnings its up to you. its a choice of you where you get content. which do you prefer? enjoy or earn more?

Yes, I think we all do. It seems like 24 hours is not enough. We start the day and end it without ever accomplishing much. I wish we had 36 hours a day so I could do what I'd been planning to do like going to the gym, reading good books, learning how to cook, etc.

you have to make your time to manage on it. do a list to what is the important things or priority must be done first. and make a check on it, then your second priority. you can make your own time if you want. most important is, have much time on yourself to enjoy.. its your choice..

Oh I can relate to that. My work and my daughter take up a good chunk of my time. Beyond that, I have a whole network of people calling me for rides, favors or just wanting to hangout. It's all good up to a point but I do need my space to do what I need to do and also a little of what I want to do. I'm a happier person when I have that space and a better mom and a better friend. So when I start feeling pulled in all directions and cranky at the pullers, I just stop answering my phone and my door. I have an answering machine so if it is important, I'll know it. Just KNOWING that I am not going to get interupted is relaxing in itself. Usually it only takes a day and I'm back on track. We all need to take time out for ourselves.

yes you do. because your the one who can manage it. don't let your priority and your work stock on you. have time for yourself and to your family. they are your most priority in life. don't let your time control you. to make yourself busy and no space for your own happiness is choice. it depends on you on how to handle it.

Time really is gold and there seems to be little of it to those people who want to achieve more. But time management teaches us to prioritize on things that need immediate attention over things that can wait. Therefore we can list all the things we need and want to do and have them numbered based on priority so we know which should come first. As for me, I have a list of things to do at the office and another list of things to do at home. This way I feel organized and don't tend to forget important matters. And although I don't get to finish them all everyday, I can still note it again for the following day until it gets on the number one list and I finally attend to it. :)

we have our priorities in life. that is why we have to work in order to meet our goal and priorities. but sometimes because of courage to pursue this priorities in order to rich them. but sometimes we forgot some of our important things why we do this. our family our love-one we have not enough time for them..

Yes I need more time. But I guess people only have limit of time to do this things. We need to budget our time and only choose what really is important.
• Philippines
13 Apr 10
YOUR RIGHT. we call this time management. there is a decisions to make before make a move. we have to think it twice and select which those thing are important. in order to this, we can not blame ourselves for every time that we spent.

This is a good one, all of us needs time, but whatever we do we cannot have an additional time because literally in general times is fixed and only a cycle of a 24 hour period, i guess the best remedy for that is that we budget our time properly or we need to become an effective and efficient individual at the same time. Being effective can add remedy to that problem cause with that we do not need to repeat a task that is given to us and we can please whoever we need to please, and being efficient is a plus because efficiency means we fulfill a task the fastest way less time and product consuming. effective + efficient = cure or let's just say a very good way to escape from time stress.

good suggestion.. we have to be effective and efficient to our time. as the saying " don't wait for tomorrow as what you can do for today. so we don't have to waste our time coz time is short it runs faster and faster everyday. i agree with your my friend

Yes indeed, life is full of a multitude of pressures in life. A lot of that has to do with time. Or to be more accurate, not having enough time in the day. Granted, there are times where I manage to budget my time effectively. Where I manage to get everything done in a timely manner. Where I am not sweating and wondering where the time went. I do love those rare times when that happens. Unfortunately, those are the exception rather than the rule. We are always working against the clock a lot of the time. Myself included and I find myself being creative in trying to get the most of my time. Some of the times it works out well, sometimes it blows up in my face in the most spectacular manner possible. I could always do with just a little more time. It always seems like just ten more minutes or just fifteen more minutes. Of course, if that should happen, then it would be ten more minutes or even fifteen more minutes more than that. Then the ball continues to roll downhill from there bit by bit, until there is a lot of time needed. I try to utilize time management whenever I can to get the most out of my time. Unfortunately, that can only get so far.

TAKING CONTROL OF YOUR TIME. in order to make time for what matters you need to know what are those things are. this will be easier if you have a clear grasp of your values, your goals and the specific activities that support these: you might try writing down every value that comes to your mind such as family, friendship, hard-work, education, accomplishment, good looks, money, happiness, marriage, kindness, physical health and spiritual health. then ask yourself "which of these value are most important to me?"

sometimes people don't have their time to enjoyed. they always worked hard to make money for their family. but they don't know that their family don't need more on financial matter, sometimes they need our time to spent with there.

No, I may not require the extra time, than what I have..rather, would like to have strenth, energy, stamina or knowledge and the good wishes of well wishers such that I was able to complete correctly the alloted work in a respected manner and without disturbing or hurting anyone. Good wishes.

People in most walks of life want to get things done in a hurry. Times are like that when everyone is panicky about things being done in a hectic pace.
• Philippines

yes, as we observed now a days, the time is so very fast to move. we don't even know, as we see, so many work to be done but still have no time to finish it., until there was a time that we have to bring our work in our home. and for this, we have not enough time to spent our family..

Yes, sometimes I feel there are not enough hours in a day to do all what I NEED to do plus do the things I WANT to do. I guess it's all a matter of time management. But there are times when things get out of control. It is true about the saying: when it rains in pours.
