It is a common saying, “Time is money.” This saying is profound is its meaning. Time is a real asset. You can regain the lost money but time once gone is gone forever.

Tips for time management
I have been setting a daily time table, and strictly following it. Here are some tips from my experience that I would like to share.
• Make a To-do list in the morning. Write down all necessary tasks for the day, rank them according to priority and usefulness, assign each task a proper time, and then follow it.
• Keep track of time throughout the day. At first, you will not find yourself abiding by the time table completely, but with time, you will hone in it.
• Do not keep on working the whole day without taking rest or breaks. It will burn you out and leave you with no desire to follow the time table. Therefore, take short breaks between the tasks; you can use mobile during these breaks, can walk some steps to keep yourself healthy, or can perform any little task.
• Set a time limit for each task and follow it. Set limits wisely so that you can complete the task in the assigned time.
• Remove less useful and non-essential activities from the list. Save your time and use it for good activities instead.
• Organize yourself and be your own boss with this quality.
Time management makes you your own boss. When you are completing tasks on time at home, at the office, in personal and social life, it gives you a sense of accomplishment that motivates you positively. You give enough time to yourself, do not overlook self-care and health, give proper attention to everyone, then you are happy in your life. No one complaints that you are not giving them enough time. Moreover, good relations keep you happy and help you stay focused only on goals. Time management enables you to fulfill each responsibility efficiently and on time.
