TIME IS LIFE
BIBLE PASSAGE: Eccles 3;1–8
MEMORY VERSE: Ephesians 5:16.
TIME IS LIFE, if you waste your time, you waste your life.
TIME IS the most important element in life. Our success and failure in life are a function of how well or otherwise we spend our time. A lot of activities take place in our life between the time we are born and the time we die. The TIME that is available to every human on a daily basis is 24hours. We must make the best of it.
There is a time allotted for growing up and starting school as well as time to start work. How well things are done in the available time at our disposal are the determinants of our accomplishments in life. It is therefore expedient to maximize the use of your time.
HOW TO SPEND YOUR TIME WISELY
1) Set goals
Set goals over a period of time. Goals that are achievable and measurable. Like, I will read 2 books during the holiday, etc
Prioritize tasks wisely, based on importance and urgency.
Some tasks are important but not urgent, learn to know the difference.
3) Set Time Limits
Set a time limit to complete a task. For example, if you have a lot of school assignments to do, plan your time to do them, starting from the easy ones to the difficult ones. Start with the ones that you easily do, leaving enough time for the difficult ones. The same is applicable during exams.
You can utilize the Calendar to plan your long and short activities. For example, weekend and holiday assignments can be planned in a way that you a lot of time for different subjects on different days. Put your plans on paper. E.g., I will complete my assignments in Maths, English, and science on Saturday, while the rest will be done on Sunday.
5) Have time for breaks
When you do too much at a time, you can be stressed out. That can be counterproductive. Set a time to break, probably after every one hour or two. That will keep you energized and motivated. When you have worked on a project or an assignment over a period of time, allow some time to clear your head and refresh.
6) Reduce your social media time.
There is a tendency to be on social media all day without getting any benefit from it. You must be purposeful. Have the courage to detach and keep your phone away for a specific time, most especially when there are important tasks to be carried out.
1) Start planning how to use your time wisely.
2)Identity purposeful tasks to be carried out and spend quality time doing them
1) Father, give me the grace to maximize the use of my time
2) Father, give me the grace to identify tasks that will enhance the fulfillment of my destiny.
3) Father, make me wise in the affairs of this life.
