Time is Money. Time cant be undone. Time is never stagnant. Value of time is subject to its utilization.

The most valuable asset you have in your life is time. Primarily because a second once lost is lost for ever.  If you had infinite time on this planet, you could achieve every single thing you wanted. The time limitation is the biggest burden of our lives. Therefore the first rule of success is to manage time wisely.

That primarily means eliminating all unnecessary time wasters in order to make more time for the most value adding activities, and, in the second step, investing every free minute you have very wisely.

  • Plan ahead, set deadlines
  • Set Small achievable goals; Don’t be over Ambitious
  • Prioritize Tasks
  • Organize and standardize activities
  • Measure Progress regularly
  • Do NOT over work
  • Get work Done Just in time to meet Deadlines
  • Eliminate Wastes

A successful business and a penniless person have the same 24hrs in their days, what is different is how much they derive of those 24hrs. Its true that each one of us is facing a different set of challenges in life, but in general, how both the individuals spend their time and set their priorities makes the most difference.
