Hello friends, how often do you hear yourself saying don’t have enough time? Do you wish you should have more time for your studies; for your favorite sport; for preparation for competitive exams; you can time for all these things if you plan your time well. Learn to manage your time by following the tips and advice given.
Time and Tide wait for None
Anthony was a very lazy boy and always used to postpone things. One day his father tried to make him understand the value of time. He said one should always do things on time. Anthony promised his father he would never postpone things.
One day he came to know about the first prize he got in a singing competition held last month. He was asked to collect the one the same day. He didn’t care and went to collect the prize the next day. But the prize became useless for him, as it was a ticket to a circus show, which was held the previous day.
Anthony learned a lesson from this incident. Can you guess the lesson Anthony learned at the end?
Give importance to the things that really matter.
Learn to prioritize your work.
Observe the box and prioritize your daily activities under four heads as given below:

Place each activity given below as per the Box provided above:
Idling/ skill development/ watching TV/ preparing for exams/ chatting/ dealing with other’s requests/ relationship building/ medical emergency/ writing an article/ reading gossip sites/ shopping for time pass.
If you are doing more activities from 2 quadrant, you have effective time management skills.
If you are doing more activities from 1 quadrant, you will have lot of stress.
