"You May Delay, But Time Will Nott"
You may have heard of the famous saying, “Time and tide wait for no man”. So, it is important to make the most of your time instead of procrastinating.
In universities, we are taught time management skills because our life is essentially a race against time. We have so many tasks at hand but very little time. This is why prioritization of work is important so that no time is wasted along the way.
Procrastination is common in the field of education. Students neglect their studies during their school term and wait till the last minute to prepare for examinations. They spend so much time playing games and chatting with friends that they eventually lose track of time and start panicking at the last moment – a few days before the examinations. These are the students that do not perform to their optimum level in the examinations.
Toppers, on the other hand, are consistent in their studies and strike the right balance between education and play. They never panic at the last moment because they are already well-prepared for their examinations.
Time is just like a river; it keeps flowing forward and never turns back. You may delay your work and wait for the last minute to complete your tasks at hand, but time will continue to move forward.
Farmers have to keep a close watch of time because they follow strict schedules for planting and harvesting. Their farming schedules are based on the weather and if they delay their planting or harvesting time by even a day, it will spell disaster for them because time will not wait for them.
We should have respect for time and not misuse it. You may have heard of this famous saying, “To realize the value of one year, ask a student who failed an examination. To realize the value of one month, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby. To realize the value of one minute, ask a person who just missed his train.
To realize the value of one second, ask someone who just avoided an accident”. Time is precious; even one second of your life is valuable. So, do not waste it. Let us have respect for time and time will show the same respect to us.
