Time Management Is Always A Hot Topic
Up For Discussion
by Brenda Johnson Padgitt
The old adage “Time Waits for No Man” is true and should be taken seriously. Time goes on no matter what. You cannot roll back time. Once time has moved on, it has moved on. This may sound depressing for some but there is hope on redeeming time. According to Ephesians 5: 15, 16 we are to be careful how we walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the most of our time because the days are evil. (American Standard Version)
In the Random House College Dictionary, redeem means to buy back, recover or to make up for. When you have lost time on a task, you must find a way to redeem the time to complete the task.
Some people recover time by doubling up on tasks, delegating tasks and using technology. Other people resort to methods used by college students by pulling all nighters without any sleep. In Garfield Gates article “Effective Study Habits for College Students” in Hub Pages, he gives 7 tips on how college students can study effectively and plan ahead. He also covers some time management tips for students.
In Randy Morrison’s CD series “Time: The Currency of a Prosperous Life,” he says that God created us to have dreams and goals and it will take time to make them become a reality. He also says that the major difference between the prosperous and the poor is their value of time.
