Time is money .... I read the same a long ago while I was student. But I would admit that still unable to manage efficiently. I try my best to save the time and try to keep a list of "to-do" but even then what I feel is that I am bit late ;) What I think is we can manage the time if we take care of other's time too. How about you? Do you care of your time or other's time ;) ? How do you manage your time successfully? Please share. Thanking you in advance!

I do not like to waste time. Mine or anyone elses. I like to be on time and if I am meeting someone, I like for them to do the same. I always like to feel that I am accomplishing something, it does not matter how small or big, as long as I feel a sense of accomplishment when I am done. There are never enough hours in the day to do all that I like to do, so I try to get the things that have to be done first. I believe in priority, lots of people do, but most people do not make time for relationships with friends anymore. This is at the top of my list. Because of the age of technology, people talk on their cell phone and text message and such, but that is not enough. Those things should be used as a tool to make plans to spend quality time together, instead of taking the place of it. For the most part, I find television a waste of time, because for me, there aren't many quality shows on anymore, so I don't indulge often. I love posting on Mylot, because there are no set hours, so I can do a little, go do something else, and then come back and do some more later. If I had to sit here for any long length of time, I would go made. Although, I love computers, I would never want to do a job where I was forced to sit in front of one for eight hours. I would go crazy and then I would hate computers. I also like to take time every day for learning something new and I like to read everyday also. It does not make sense to waste time to me, when there is always so much to do. And since I consider learning fun, all the better.

You are doing the great to "value" the time. One must have priorities in his/her life. You hate t.v. but I think there would be some who like to watch t.v. so it depends upon one's own choice how to use the time :) isn't it? Surely mylot is good in a sense that it makes us a friendly schedule based upon our own flexibility. Thanks for your response friend.

I use the old quote to manage my times efficiently. The quote is " A BUSY MAN WILL FIND TIME FOR EVERYTHING". I keep doing one or the other thing always till I retire to bed.

In fact, I couldn't manage my time successfully, because I couldn't manage other's time. I also have the habit of keeping a list of "to-do" everyday. I try to finish them one by one. But most of them couldn't be finished,because I couldn't make any decisions, I have to get the replies from other colleagues. Maybe all of them are very busy so that they always forget something. Of course, there are many factors which couldn't be controlled by them, I can understand, but if they didn't try their best and couldn't give me replies on time, I would be a little sad.Their late replies lead to my inefficiency. But now, I could persuade myself not to think so much at work. Just try to finish them one by one. Even the reply is not what I wanted, if they give me the reply on time, that is ok! We couldn't control other's time, in fact, a job couldn't be finished by yourself, it needs team work. If we make sure that our responsibility for the work is fulfilled, that is ok! Try to enjoy the work.We will be happier.

What about the teamleader then? Do you agree that successful team leader manage all the things at right time, within a given time frame! Thanks for response dear. Take care!

Yes,I agree with you. I also admire those teamleaders who can arrange their time successfully. But just as you said, they are leaders, they have the power to control others. I am just a little staff,as the other common colleagues. They always try to finish the work given by learders firstly, then resolve the left daily documents one by one. Fortunately, I could arrange my private life well. If I want, I could finish the tings I want to do one by one. I could control myself.:) But as for work, I have no method.:(

For me, I don't really mind about my time. I have lots of spare time now and I just do what I want to do without having to care about my time. I care for others time, for example if we have an appointment and agreed to meet at this time, I will see to it to be there on time, I don't like that someone is waiting for me just like that I don't like others to let me wait. I just hate it waiting for someone...

Hi Aliasad! Yes, time is money and money is the thing most precious for everyone. I do care of my time. Being student if I waste the time, it would lest make all of my hopes invain. I am doing good studies and I want to come up to expectations of my parents. Well, I sometimes while no study work is pending, waste sometime in playing :) hehehe Do you think its wastage?

Hello Mithoo! Time for students particularly weighs likewise others. Yes, if you miss a single subject in education or waste time, it would result in failure (lest) and I would suggest you to get maximum of the time available. No problem for playing even then because if you arrange the timings then it is okay. I recommend that extra curricular activities are must! Be blessed!

When I was in college (not junior as I am now at for fun mostly) I managed to read books, plan things, do papers and work a weekend job. Of course I wasnt sleeping much and felt crappy all the time. Now a days my time is kinda up and down. If I work I have to sleep later. I always dont get much sleep half the time much. So I sleep. Through next week I am in school. During the summer I shall be taking an online class. And balance 2 jobs. Yeah fun. So when you are busy you have to find time to do stuff. You have to. Balance is key. I'm just talking about taking care of myself. Not anyone else. I am not taking care of anyone else but me.

Hi Monkeywriter! I agree that one must balance the life. Do you think taking care of only yourself would be good at all? If you care of yourself, what I believe you are also taking care of others too hehehe. Thanks for response friend.

Time - This is the clock that hangs on the wall in my living room...I use it every day to help me manage the time that I have spend on certain activities. throughout the day.
I have found that keeping a journal every evening before I go to bed is not only therpeutic because I am able to clear my thoughts for the day and jot down a list of things that I need to complete the next day....I also find that it helps me to relax so that my mind "shuts down" and I sleep better. I am not talking about anything fancy or formal...it is strictly for your use.... When I go to meet with someone...I try to prepare the reason for my meeting with them; I write questions or comments down to help me remember everything that I need in one meeting which saves me follow up meetinds. Yes, I think that I manage my time well and am respectful of others time too.

Yes, we must care of the time. Jotting down is a good habit and really then you deserve to make your mind empty of all tensions and thoughts of to-do. Planing in form of writing surely cuts the time of on-the-spot scattered thoughts. Thanks for response.

I have good management of time. I hate waiting and making others wait. I am always on time when I need to go somewhere. I am famous for this and you know my frns are always late when we need to go somewhere. This tests my patience, but I feel they dont know how to manage time as I do.

Hi, aliasad, I care about my time and other's time very much. Because I know exactly the time is very limited, everyone should cherish his time. I never keep other waiting, I am always be on time or some time in advance, I manage my time by a schedule everytime, I keep every tiny time doing something, I hate wasting time. At the same time, I hate other people who waste my time, too.
