I was at a lecture last evening. In case you are wondering I am studying for my MSc. (A juggle of work and studies! Arhhhhh!)
We were given some homework the previous week and the lecturer asked how many actually completed it. The majority of the class said, "No, I didn’t complete". Yours truly included ! To our utter surprise he started asking "why" from every student. When the first culprit answered, "I didn’t have time" the lecturer asked, "Who borrowed your time?". At the time, everyone burst out laughing at the cynical statement. However, it got me thinking and here I am writing a post about it.
I am aware that there are many books and articles that offer many helpful advice on how to save time. This post though, is to highlight a different approach.
Who borrowed you time today? When your at home, it might be the television. When at work, it might be an annoying colleague. When your on the road it might be the traffic. Yes, there is a point I am trying to make. Here it is. Identifying the cause of time wasters. Once you are aware of the factors that drain you time, you might be able to take preventive measures to avoid or reduce it.
Now is the time. Who borrowed you time today? Start making the list and analyze more feasible solutions. Practice it for a few days, and let me know if it made a difference.
