Introduction: Time once past cannot be brought back by any means and it is important to understand the value of time. Time is money.  There goes a proverb , “Time and tide wait for none“.

Time is invaluable. In-fact, time is more valuable than money. Nothing can stop the flow of time. Time once past cannot be brought back by any means.

However, some people do not realize the value of time and spend it unwisely. Instead of focusing on important tasks at hand, they waste their time, thinking that they would make up the loss in the future. They should realize that many of the future troubles can be avoided by taking prompt action in a timely manner. The famous proverb, “a stitch in time saves nine“, also highlights the importance of sorting out problem at early stage.

Importance of Time-management for success: Time-management always remains the critical success factor. If anybody wastes his childhood, he will not be able to acquire and build up character in future and will suffer all consequences. Similarly, if a student neglects his studies from day-to-day, no amount of hard labor before the examination will get him through. Time-management is a good habit and lays the foundation of a success in future.

A person who is not punctual finds it difficult to finish his own duties. If he is not able to perform his duties, then it may incurs the displeasure of others. In the military field delay by a few minutes may change the destiny of a nation.

Future is unseen: It is true that nobody can accurately forecast the future. There are many things that are beyond the control of human-beings. The economy and financial situation of countries are fast changing.

Though the future is unseen, man can work hard today to increase the probability of a better future. People should use their time properly.  We should try our best to avoid the habit of indolence and begin to do our jobs in time. It will surely brighten our future.

Value of time during emergency situations: The weather condition always remains uncertain. There remains the risk of natural calamities. To tackle the situation of natural calamities, the government and other organizations are coming up with “Disaster Management and Recovery Plans”. During the times of emergency, the disaster recovery teams are expected to act fast without wasting a single minute.

Conclusion: If we look all around important events of history, we will see that all successful people of history made the best use of time. The prosperous people of the world are very conscious about the value of time. So, we should never waste our time and try to make the best use of it.
