Time is very slow for those who want, very fast for those who scared, very long for those who are sad and very short for those who celebrate but for those who love, time is eternal.

William Shakespeare

Never Waste Time | Time Is Precious And Priceless

Many of us do not realise the value of time. We waste time on entertainment, fun and such matters which are not important for a successful life. We should always use our time properly and positively. We should never spend our time without purpose and meaning at any stage of life.

Time is free to all, but none can buy or sell time. You must have noticed running river goes constantly ahead, but never runs back. We can recover the money spent or lost, can never recover the lost time.

Most people never get rich because they don’t value time

Never Waste Time – Ensure Proper Use Of Account

Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with 86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course!!!!

Each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME.
Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds.
Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose.
It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft.
Each day it opens a new account for you.
Each night it burns the remains of the day.
If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours.
There is no going back.
There is no drawing against the “tomorrow”.
You must live in the present on today’s deposits.
Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and success!
The clock is running.
Make the most of today.

Why not try as many things as possible?

Instead of wasting time on matters that are of no use at all try as many things as possible. You never know which small thing is going to make you successful in the future.

What is one of the most common problems of today?

There are thousands of useful things that are already available to learn and to grow ourselves. Most of these are totally free and available online to learn.

Ignoring all these things, people are always out of things to learn and continuously killing precious time unconsciously.

Instead of wasting your valuable time every day you can easily implement to utilize it to make a successful life.

1. Always Keep Learning

The key to utilizing time is to always keep learning something. The moment the word “time pass” comes into your mind, you become dull and lose your interest.

Life is too short and hence avoid carelessly passing the time. Every second should be utilized.

Keep learning Don't waste time

Whatever you do, good or bad, don’t do as time pass but try to learn something from it. Don’t learn a bad thing, try to find the positive and learn.

When you see a person with a bad habit, you can observe that person’s reaction.
Then from your observation, you can learn to avoid such bad habits and grow
out of it.

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.

Henry Ford

Enjoy and utilize every moment of your life, always keep learning and keep growing. Never stop learning, Update your knowledge regularly.

2. Make yourself better

Don't waste time sitting idle

Never sit idle because once it becomes your habit, it will affect the future to invest your energy in any work.

If you influence with friends who are sitting idle, your life will be damaged. What they usually do?

They don’t do any useful thing but gossiping about politics, spreading fake news, make baseless comments about others and other such useless things.

Never keep bad friends because they will damage your life.

If you have no work to do, or retired and taking rest at home, you can still do some work. You can share your knowledge with others and help them to gain knowledge.

Don’t think your age is over for learning because there is no age limit on learning. You can learn many new things online for free.

The inspiring story of 96-Year-old Karthyayani who scored 98 in Kerala Literacy Mission test proves that age is not a barrier to learning.

I am retired and at home now. I am self-learning and maintaining this blog. By doing this, I learn new things and also sharing the knowledge with others.

Invest your valuable time in learning anything or doing anything in which you are truly interested. Remember, it’s your life and it is once, so please don’t waste it.

3. Observe Deeply

If you have nothing to do also you have something to do. You may ask what is that something.

You can observe deeply and that is so interesting as well as helpful also. When you have free time observe the work of other skilled people and learn from them. They can guide you the best.

You can observe how our mind run after useless attractions and try to stop such time-wasting bad habits. Self-observation is good for identifying own faults. correcting them and helps to grow yourself every day.

When you understand yourself deeply that will help you to understand the whole of humanity.

Observe Deeply
