Wikipedia defines time "as the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in
apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future.
Time is a component quantity of various measurements used to sequence events,
to compare the duration of events or
the intervals between them, and to quantify
rate of change of quantities in material
reality or in the conscious experience."

Wristwatches are a constant reminder of time, they tell us how much time we spend on something or how much time we have left to do something, that's why most of us say

"I don't have much time left"

How do you measure time?
How do you use your time ?
How well do you manage your time?

Well, these questions require a one-on-one self assessment before it could be properly answered in all fairness.

Time, they say is what gives meaning and value to a lot of things, age, moments, growth, loyalty, life even the future is projected to come at a particular time.

Everyman has time in abundance, everyman is giving equal time to live out his life, -all things being equal- to the extent of he's being.

if anyone wants to spend time with you, the person wants to share a part of your life that you or them can't recover, and that is beautiful

In Science, time, measured in seconds (s) is so important, it appears in almost every equation, because of what it stands for.

In Human life, the value of a man's life is the time he spends doing productive things, this is sometimes measured by the results of his actions or duration of the time he spends on it.


Time is so important, that if you manage your time well, a lot of things will be achieved.

Let's take for example, you're a cocoa farmer, who toils the land very early in the morning before the scorching Sun comes out, sells he's produce immediately after toiling in the morning, then rests in the evening in preparation for the next day
This particular farmer will produced more crops and sell more than another who toils the land when he dims fit and sells when he feels like.

Time management is the coordination of events you want to attend to, it the laid down plan, with specified time range, for a particular event in a pool of events for a day.

The popular saying there is time for everything is right in all sense, there's time to grow, time to harvest, time to live, to die, to wake, to work, to eat, to wash, to do everything, this is time management

People have somehow gave time some attributes that I say its worth it.
you hear.

  • time flies

  • time is precious

  • time waits for no man

  • time is golden

    All these are true if you look at it from its various perspective.

Timing cannot be overemphasized, it is the allocated time range for an event, proper timing can increase productivity, give a sense of responsibility to its practitioner.

I can't tell you how to spend your time because we are different from ourselves, we do different things and for different reasons, you know yourself better than anyone will ever will, you know what works well for you, you know the time you work well.

Use your time well, use your life well

You know Yourself

Harnessing this fact will help you manage your time well, for ** whoever learns how to manage his time, day will eventually manage his life well **

Being loyal to a cause is spending time and energy on it, but the blindly following up a lost cause will result into a total waste of time, this is where we have to check ourselves regularly.

Am I doing the right thing?
Am I a good person?
Am I hurting anyone with my actions?
Am I following the right cause?

These and more… are the questions we ought to ask ourselves if we truly want to achieve good.

Timing is of the essence, noone can buy time, none can recover lost time, it is the only thing we can't get back if lost, this is why we have to be very careful how we utilize it, for it is the only true yardstick for measurement.

Time is expensive

** There's a Chinese proverb that says "the best time to plant a tree is 20years ago, the next best time is now" **

Use your time well, practice realistic time management routine, use your time well, in reality, you're using your life well
