In earlier times, people led a far more disciplined life compared to today. They woke up early in the morning and started with their daily chores well in time. They toiled hard all day long and accomplished all their tasks with dedication. 

They also made it a point to sleep on time. They focused on their work and managed their time efficiently. However, in today’s time, with so many distractions around, it has become difficult for people to maintain focus and accomplish their tasks timely. 

Even though people know that time is valuable, they are unable to manage it properly as they remain distracted by mobile phones, tabs, television and other sources of entertainment.

Wasting Time: The Worst You Can Do to Yourself

It is essential to understand the value of time. Wasting time is the worst thing one can do to himself/ herself. Time must always be used in a constructive way. 

We must value time just like we value all our other valuable belongings. We must not waste time indulging in non-productive tasks such as watching TV, surfing the internet and chit chatting over the phone. This is not to say that we should refrain from these completely. 

It just means, we must prioritize our tasks and accomplish all that is of importance and indulge in the aforementioned only for a limited time.

Realise the Importance of Time

It is time we all should recognize the importance of time. We must use it for our good as well as the good of those around us in order to build a better society. Parents must spend quality time with their children to build a strong bond with them. 

They must also teach the importance of time to their children and help them manage their time efficiently. A nation where each individual utilises his time efficiently and leads a disciplined life is likely to grow at a greater speed compared to a country where people wile away their time uselessly.

Make the Most of the Time

We must utilize our time wisely to make the most of it. It is best to prepare a schedule each morning and work according to it in order to make the most of the time we have. This is not only useful for students and working professionals but also for housewives and other people. 

There are numerous tasks that every person needs to handle in a day. In order to complete all the tasks in a timely manner, it is always good to schedule them properly. Now, this is not means that we must spend all our time working.

 If we do that then our productivity is likely to decline. We must thus squeeze in some time during the day for recreation as well. We must also ensure that we take adequate sleep as it is very important for working efficiently for the rest of the day.


It is rightly said, “The greatest gift you can give someone is your time, because when you give your time you are giving a portion of your life that you will never get back”. We must all recognize the importance of time and spend it in the right manner to do well in our life.
