Here's Ms Nisha Kale's advice to the youngsters today struggling to make time in today's digital world!
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run
Yours is the Earth and everything that is in it,
The above lines from the poem 'If' by Rudyard Kipling, talks about the minute that is not merciful. The minute passed by is lost forever. Thus it becomes most essential to instill in the young minds the value of time. Often school children are pressed for time and default in their academic submissions. Right from the primary section children should be given training to perform their tasks as per schedule.
One of the major distractions today is Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and other social media sites. The onus is on the parent to check this which allows the child to procrastinate from their work.
Students must set up a calendar to schedule study and play time. It helps to plan the day effectively. The child could well make his own list titled, like 'Things to Do' which could be an effective checklist. Be sure to include some time for reading or any other hobby the child wishes to pursue.
Initially, the elders need to help the child learn the art of time management. All tasks given to them should be time bound. Often children indulge in useless tasks at the time when they should be working on something important. Thus the first thing we must do is to prioritize their tasks.
Late nights create havoc in the child's schedule as it results in waking up late. The full day is a 'hurried day' resulting in fatigue and lethargy, with nothing accomplished.
It is true that time flees, but the factual truth is that it is you who are ticking away with every minute that passes by. Time is infinite and is here until the world ends. We are finite and will pass away. Thus we have to make the best use of our time or else, may regret all our lives.
To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.
To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby.
To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.
To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who missed the train.
To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who just avoided an accident.
To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won a silver medal in Olympics.
The above unknown text is an eye-opener to one and all to value time and manage it efficiently.
