“I wish to do it, but I don’t have time”.
” I have no time to work on my hobby”.
“I am so busy doing the household work I don’t find time for myself”.

Many people do complain that they don’t have time to do things that they love. Are you one among them?
You might be a homemaker, stay-at-home mom, or a working professional managing both professional and personal life with a lot of stress and anxiety. You are struggling to manage your life and trying to make the life of the people around you much better and happier. And at the end of the day, there is no time for yourself.

In the next few minutes, I am going to explain to you how you can get the hook of your life back in your hands and enjoy the life that you always wished to have. I am sure that this is going to change your life and you can thank me later.
Why is time management important?
I can imagine how boring life would be, doing the same old things over and over again. A monotonous life would lose color. Every day the same routine and moving up and down the same roads. You are doing things not because you love to do them but you are forced to do them. Don’t you love the moment you get a chance to come out of this routine and do something different? Sometimes it happens that you wake up in the morning and curse the day that you have to pass through. How much happier you are when you get a chance to attend a party at a relative’s place or a trip with your friends or a movie evening. Don’t you think that you have the right to be happy in every moment of your life? And now, do you agree if I say that you are responsible for building your own happy and sad moments in life?
In the next few lines, I want to show you how you can be a happier person if you are ready to follow the exact guidelines that I have created for you. I am sure about it because I have tried and tested it and now I want to share it with you.
How can you manage your time by managing your life?
Your Life will be much more fun-filled if you can manage your time. You must have heard a lot about time management. There are so many motivational speakers around giving multiple tips on time management. Forget about all those tips and techniques. I want to put it very simple and straight. Time management is the art of holding control of your life in your hands. Now, just think for a while, how much control do you have over your life? Rate it on a 0-10 scale. If it is more than 5 you are easy to go forward. If it’s less than 5, don’t get upset. Stay with me till the end of this post where I will be walking you through it step by step.
1. Be disciplined in your life
The first and foremost thing about time management is discipline. A successful life comes with a lot of discipline. There should be a proper time and place for everything and everyone. Define space and time and stick to it. Do the right things at the right time and don’t hesitate to put a strike on the wrong people in your life. Just take out a few days to plan and reorganize everything, right from the kitchen to the filing cabinet and wardrobes, you can see wonders happening in the next couple of days. You are saving a lot of time that you used to spend searching for the things. And that’s not just about it! You get a feeling of satisfaction which is priceless!
2. Be the decision-maker of your life
It’s not that you have to completely ignore all those advisors who come up with free advice. You may lend an ear to them but any final decision regarding your life should be your own. This will help you get better control of your life. I understand that it is not as easy as said, but you need to start it somewhere. Break the shell and prepare to fly!
3. Schedule your tasks and deadlines
It’s important to have schedules and deadlines even if you are the boss. This will help you to keep a track on everything and you can rest assured that you don’t miss out on any of them. There are simple yet powerful techniques to do that. First of all you need to identify all the tasks that you need to complete in a set time, it could be yearly or monthly. Break them down into weekly, daily and hourly. Prioritize your tasks and fix time for everything and don’t forget to keep deadlines to complete each and every task. But that’s not all about it. Setting deadlines is easy but meeting is not. Stay committed to yourself is the mantra!
Stay focused! Stay committed!
Once you are disciplined and have better control over your life, time management becomes a piece of cake. Yes, you read it right. But how do you start? First thing is to have the right mindset. Today you make a promise to yourself that you will reorganize your life in such a way that you find time for everything that you want to do. Remember, all the successful people in the world also have only 24 hours in their day. If they can do so many things in 24 hours, why can’t you?
Spend some time to rearrange or reorganise everything, be it your kitchen cabinets or wardrobes or document files. Make your headings and subheadings for easy access. Put all your spices in one rack and pulses in another. Keep separate files for your kid’s documents and certificates. This way you save so much time that you can spend for yourself.
Remember that time is more precious than money because you can’t get back time by paying for all your wealth. Try implementing these simple yet powerful tips and let me know how they changed your life.
