Excerpts From Time Management Class

Let’s talk time a for a little while. According to Wikipedia, “Time is the continued sequence of existence and events that occurs in apparently irreversible succession from the past, through the present, into the future. It is a component quantity of various measurements used to sequence events, compare the duration of events or the intervals between them, and quantify rates of change of quantities in material reality or the conscious experience. Time is often referred to as a fourth dimension, along with three spatial dimensions”. 

Time is indispensable because we cannot do without it, no single one of us. From the newborn babies, students, lecturers, the blind, deaf and clinically insane and the greatest men and women alike, we are all slaves to the entity called time. For there is a time to be born and a time to die, a time to wake and a time to sleep. It is therefore only wise men that take into cognizance the importance of mastering the art of controlling and managing time.

Time is perishable, in all its glory it is so fragile and susceptible to time (itself). To put it lightly, one hour in time is subject to another hour in time. Moving slowly fast throughout the period called a day, time seems to run ahead of itself in competitive panache. Perishable, yet amazingly you cannot keep it in the fridge to preserve it, you cannot freeze it. 

Time is consumable, yet you cannot buy it. Pause for a minute and bask in the false euphoria that we could purchase time with some ridiculous amount of money, what would you do differently? Well, that is rhetoric meant for you and your soul to discuss. Time is the only asset meant to be consumed while being invested. Is it not amazing how the universe seems to outdo herself on every principle?

Time is irreplaceable, once you lose it, it is gone. It is the measurement in which memories are committed to our minds yet cannot be undone to be redone. We have heard, read, and watched (in so many movies) the obscure thought that man could travel in time, going back into the past or moving forward into the future. O, if wishes were horses, I would ride on this one. 

Time is sufficient, for sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Ignore the biblical reference, keep the focus on the fact that time is sufficient. Every man is given a measure of time, to waste or invest. Fairly enough, we most likely get to eat the fruit of our labours, whether it be sweet or sour. Time is sufficient to win or lose, it is sufficient to fail or succeed. 

Conclusively, time like every other life resource, is purely at our mercy even though it is our master. It is therefore left to us to use it to our advantage or to our destruction. For every willing servant that is left untamed has the potential to become a monstrous king. The choice is entirely yours, live or die.
