How you spend your time will determine the outcome of your life. Time can’t be compared with any material possession in this world. They say waste your money and you’re only out of money, but waste your time and you’ve lost part of your life.

Over the years, I have been able to carry out a research on time and I have come up with significant points that would permit you to leverage on this precious gift that is given to us:

1. Time management means knowing the distinction between being busy and being productive

A triumphant individual constantly asks, “What am I doing to grow myself?” They are always doing what is the most productive thing at any given moment. They understand that there is a difference between being busy and being productive. Being busy means you are occupied with lots of activities and it feels like you’re getting lots done.

Being productive means you are focused on a single activity that yields the greatest return on your time invested. Being busy means doing things right. Being productive means doing the right things.

2. Understand Time

Time is always available. Whether you are a billionaire or pauper you have 24 hours a day and you can either use the day to take a step closer to your dream or away from you dream. The declaration of “I don’t have enough time” is a self-created obstacle, an unnecessary thought that can be fixed and turned into a constructive productivity device.

Time is divided into two: 

  • Real Time: Here time is comparative. When you are uninterested in any activity time drags. When you are having a great time it flies. Real-time is in your mind and you can control it. We live in real time.
  • Clock time (measured with watches and gadgets) : The measure of time with 60 seconds in a minute in an hour, 24 hours in a day, 12 days in a week, 30 days in a month, 365days in a year, 3652.42 days in a decade and so on. Every moment in time passes similarly. It’s irrelevant.

Your actions, conversations, and thoughts are how you spend your valuable time. To become a winner in any field one should master the craft of making 20 percent of your effort yield 80 percent of results. Read on the 80/20 principle by Richard Koch.

3. Work hard play hard 

Productivity entails working hard/smart and also playing hard. There is a time for everything, time to hustle and also time for rest. As its said, work with no play makes jack a dull boy.

I encourage individuals to take breaks throughout the day and eat regular meals. This results high productivity levels.
