Managing time somehow helps us to bridge the gap between failure and success. Time is something which we cannot bring back once its gone. In this modern world, it is common for the people to procrastinate things. In fact it is easier for us to procrastinate than to do things on time. Our first goal should be “how to manage and use our time wisely“. There are usually two kinds of people: one who realizes with time and the other who is already utilizing his time wisely. Both achieves the goal, but now the bitter truth is that the modern world requires the best out of the best. Therefore at the end of the day, all that matters is whether we have reached the finish line of the race first that we have been running for a long time.


Procrastinating is when you keep your works or activities for later instead of doing it at its own specified time. Many are aware that procrastinating things is not a good option but we end up taking that path and thus it becomes a hindrance in our way to success. We should know that “Procrastination is the thief of all dreams“. There are many reasons as to why we should stop procrastinating and start making use of our precious time. Few of the reasons are:

  • Tend to get lazier
  • Stress us out and cause anxiety
  • Poor academic performance
  • Promotes negative feelings
  • Self defeating behavior


As normal human beings, we suffer many kinds of problems faced in our day-to-day life, especially students. The best way to quickly get rid of them is to first sort out the biggest problem within yourself and not elsewhere. Then you can start finding a way/an alternative to solve/replace the problem. No matter how big you may think your problem is, you only realize that it was a tiny one after finding your solution. Therefore start getting indulged with your problems.

Time as per science can be defined as a finite resource as it have only 24 hours per day and it cannot be regained once its gone. Therefore, managing our time becomes an important factor. Just imagine what will happen if the time we use for procrastinating, making excuses, etc can be used for something productive.

Why time management is a key to success?

Let us assign Person A and Person B with the same project which is supposed to be completed within a week. Person A is lazy and procrastinates for a day or two and takes the whole week to complete his work. He undergoes mental stress, health problems and anxiety. While Person B without wasting tiny bit of his time does his work. He finishes his work within 4 days and starts working on his other projects. He also gets time to spend with his family and friends. He undergoes less stress as compared to Person A as he has done his work at his preferred time. Honestly, who do you see yourself as - Person A or Person B ? If you see yourself as Person A, then you have to work really hard, know your strength and weaknesses and work on them, motivate yourself to do things on time and most importantly, focus on yourself and become aware and active of the things going on around you. If you see yourself as Person B, then you are on the right track and a bright future is awaiting you because time heals every single dissatisfaction/failure in life only when you start looking after time.
