A small Island, United Kingdom (UK) became very great by the virtue of Time Management.
“He who plans his work, and never works according to the plan, is more to be pitied than he who never bothered to plan.”
The song sung by people mostly is titled, “There is No Time.” We are in the era in which we have twenty-four hours in a day. Thank God for this! Before I move on, may I ask that if we have more than twenty-four hours in a day, will the title of our song change?
I am not sure the number of hours found in a day in the beginning was up to twenty-four. The numbers of hours found in a day then, should be lesser than now. You ask how? Fine! In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Now, let me call your attention to the record of the creation: Then, God said, “Let there be light…. So the evening and the morning were the first day (Genesis 1:3 – 5). God said and it happened. Can’t you see this was an instant happening? Then, may I ask you; how many seconds, not to talk of minutes, did this instantaneous action take? Afternoon was not even mentioned.
Out of lesser time, God still created something extra-ordinary; out of nothing, He created something great. You were made in the image of God, a co-creator with Him. If I were you, out of no time, agreed;
- I would have created time rather than any other thing.
- And I will do something good with the time I’ve made available.
Hear this, creating – making available – the time is not the ultimate, but doing something good with the time you’ve made available.
God saw the light that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness (Genesis 1: 4). Meaning, God first saw the good things He was going to derive out of what He has created, and plan how it was going to be derived. If God, your creator can do this, then resemble your father, don’t act like a vagabond; see the advantages you will derive from the time you have made available for yourself. Tell me the essence of making the time available, when it is not going to be used judiciously. Have a workable time table; he who plans his work, and never works according to the plan, is more to be pitied than he who never bothered to plan. Plan your work according to the available time you’ve created. Work according to your plan, and include a time of short rest, as you deem it fit.
Do this everyday, committing everything into your creator’s hands. Then, the sky cannot even be your limit. You can move far beyond common and ordinary success.
