8 Reasons why people think they don’t have much time
Do you feel so occupied that you cannot even enjoy yourself anymore? Do you wake up too early and do lot of things but most of them are not done yet? Well, you might consider reflecting about your attitude towards time and how to spend it wisely. Living in a world which demands a lot of time, energy and effort make us productive yet somehow lazy. Productive in the sense that we think creatively and act creatively because of the tons of work we need to accomplish in just a matter of time while on the other hand, lazy because somehow due to a lot of stress that our works demands from us, the only way to escape and run away is to postpone the work therefore using time foolishly. As the saying goes, time is gold. Whatever we do we must extend our whole self towards it and not waste even a single second because we are not our time’s commander. Do your work in time and expect faster and better results. Do your work foolishly and expect not so good results. Here are 8 reasons why people think they do not have much time.
1 They don’t wake up early
Waking up early means having more time to do your work and finish it up quickly. Some people tend to complain that they are overwhelming busy that is why they cannot finish up their work but the real reason is that they woke up late, went to work late therefore not being so productive for that day. Try to sleep early and set an alarm the next day so that you will know what time to wake up.
2 They don’t create schedules
Creating a to-do list or a schedule is one way to monitor your actions and how far until you accomplish your work for the day. Some people admit that they lack of free time because they have a habit of accepting errands thinking that they can finish it up all day but the reality is that they are already occupied for the day but still they manage to take up other works.
3 They don’t relax
Stress can really eat up your time and energy. You easily get irritated and end up blaming yourself because you just cannot finish up your work early. Let me remind you that when you are stressed, your brain can’t function well thus spending your time longer without doing anything. So try to keep calm and think it can save your time.
4 They want everything to happen fast
Finishing your work as early as possible is a good thing a worker should have in mind. Although we want fast results we should keep in mind that everything has its own time. Don’t hurry up tomorrow’s work by doing it today. Finish up your schedule and use your spare time for your family or for yourself. Remember that you are just a person with two hands and one mind, you can’t do all things all by yourself. Try to finish up your work for today and let tomorrow’s work worry for itself.
5 They don’t prioritize
What we do, all of them are important but some things need priority. When we segregate our works, those things in the priority list and those in the normal list, we tend to save time and be more productive. Some people complain that they don’t have much time because they are overwhelmed by the idea that all their works should be done today. Even those things which are not that very important, they do it already and sometimes those which have early deadlines are forgotten.
6 They like to multitask
Seriously it is fine to do things in a group or what we called as multitasking. But sometimes we need to slow down and take one step at a time. We often dream of finishing our work in just a snap of a finger but honestly speaking, we can’t. Why not finish one work at a time and do the following work and so on. If you slow down and do things one by one, you can think even more and this may result for you to finish your work in a day but without stressing yourself.
7 They let negativity enter their minds
When negativity enter your life it’s like even if you want to achieve something nice and accomplish something right on time, you can’t because you are already afraid that you might not do it. But if you let positivity bring out the best in you, all the work you need to accomplish will be done because you believed in yourself and you trust yourself that you can do it.
8 They cram a lot
Well this one is true. Cramming is never a good thing anyone should do. When you cram your mind and your body is stressed out and eventually you hurry up things and finish them even though you can’t handle the hassle anymore. Instead of enjoying yourself watching Netflix while eating popcorn, you can’t because you have to finish up your work, the work that was given to you month’s before and will be submitted tomorrow. Try to do things immediately when it’s given to you. Through this you get to save time and energy as well as you get to enjoy yourself.
These reasons may or may not apply to you but still let these be your eye opener on how you can manage time and spend it wisely. You don’t have to sleep 4 hours in order for you to wake up early just to finish your work on time. Keep everything in order and do it accordingly to your plan. Remember to take it easy and just enjoy your work and the things you do because eventually in the right time everything will be paid off.
