Time is of The Essence
Have you ever heard of the phrase “time is of the essence?” The first time I heard that was not until a couple years ago when my father first explained it to me. Basically it means that time is of the upmost importance and whatever you need to do needs to be done now before it’s too late. Once I realized what this meant I figured out that time is not my enemy, but my friend and that time management would be my key to success. I need to better myself at managing my time because not only will it improve my performance as a student, but it will also help relieve stress and become more organized.
I believe that having proper and improved time management is the most important essential to have while being a student. If you are someone who feels they are struggling in school and/or overwhelmed by stress and unorganization, managing your time more wisely can minimize stress and improve your organization skills which will help you defeat that overwhelming feeling. Less stress leads to a healthier lifestyle and better organization leads to a more balanced life. Not only will managing your time help you with these things, but it will increase your performance as a student which leads to a better education.
I don’t know about you, but I feel organization is one of the most important skills you can obtain and bettering your time management can help improve it. “One becomes more organized as a result of effective time management.” Learning how to manage your time will always leave you with a better sense of organization. For example, knowing what your tasks are and when they need to be done and writing them down (in a planner, calendar, to-do-list, etc.) is more organized than having all the things you need to do jumbled inside your head. Having things written down with a date and time that they need to be completed will leave you feeling more organized...
