Time is precious. Just like we can buy precious commodities through money, similarly we can also buy precious knowledge, sharp brain, wealth, health, fame, name, happiness, peace and bliss through time. God has sent us with the precious wealth that is time and allowed us to spend this wealth in whatever we want in this world.
Charles Fast, a well-known mathematics expert of US, invested one hour daily to learn mathematics, and is known as a great mathematician.
And the great Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar was a philosopher, academic educator, writer, translator, printer, publisher, entrepreneur, reformer and philanthropist. He was known by his punctuality so much that the shopkeepers on the roadside used to correct their watches when he used to commute daily in front of their shops.
The true value of time is defined by the means on which the time is spent.
A person in a job gets a monthly salary. A wise man makes a budget on how he would like to spend his salary. Similarly, a wise man should also make a budget for hours to be spent in a day, so that time is not wasted and fully utilized.
One should categorize the hours of a day based on three important aspects of life:
- Health 2. Wealth 3. Social Obligations
A timetable helps in keeping us focussed, reduce unnecessary wastage of time and increase efficiency. Just think of a school without a timetable, how efficiently the students will grow and learn. A habit of doing a particular kind of work at a particular time and place helps in efficiency, as the energy of that area get converted into the specific ions required for the planned activity due to regular cycle of practice.
The whole universe is time bound. The regularity of all celestial bodies with time results in such mysterious yet organized universe. Being a part of the universe, we are bound to follow that practice for our own well being and the well being of our collecting universe.
