3 Great Reasons Why You Must Value Time

Time is a commodity you can’t afford to waste in life. Everything created by God has an expiring date. “A time to be born and a time to die.” To be successful and great in life, one needs to respect and value time. Most often than not, people who waste time never achieve anything successful in life.

I have always asked people this simple question when they approach me regarding writing a book or how they can achieve their goal in life; what value do they place on their time to see their dream come through or what they do with their spare time or free time?

I have said it before and it worth repeating. Anyone who wastes your time, has wasted your destiny. It takes time to create destiny and if we allow time wasters into our lives; they will steal us from achieving our destiny. What we do in our spare times is very crucial in determining how successful we become or how we step into our next levels.

Are you aware that, time is one of the most valuable commodities that we have? It takes time to create money. It takes time to save a patient, it takes time to love and it takes time to hate someone if I may say so.

People can always make money; but, shamefully, no one can ever regain a time lost.

As a lifestyle coach, it is possible to say that, it takes time to set and achieve a personal goal or a corporate goal. Whatever goal it is, time is a determinant of its success. With that in mind, I have encouraged people to respect time so that, time will give them the success they desired.

Lack of time management produces failure. When you lack time management skill, you become very lazy to inspire yourself to do or take the necessary steps into what to do at a particular time to step into your next level.

This therefore means that, when we manage our times appropriately, we are then able to prioritize the tasks we need to do to achieve the result or success we want.

1. Prevents Putting Things Off.

The valuing of time helps to prevent putting things off. Putting things off is theft of time and success. It is vital that, we spend time to work on the tasks or goals wisely. There is no need to want to achieve all the goals at once. It is better to break or divide task into smaller units or portions, so that we can be able to achieve them within an allocated time frame. Don’t waste time trying to put all eggs into one basket as we have been made to believe over the years.

2. Productive And Effective.

Valuing time also helps us become very productive and effective in our pursuit to our next level. We are able to exert energy to work more efficiently, gain more knowledge and experiences. Most people who respect and value time are able to learn faster and work faster. They become more focused and pay more attention to their work.

You are more able to take control of your life and achieve greater results because; you become more aware about your strengths and weaknesses as you journey along into your next level. You develop better understanding about how things are the way they are and why they happen because, you spend quality time to do things. You don’t rush to do things or get panicked when things do not go the way you want them. Successful people learn to control their own time to achieve success and not someone else’s.

3. Health And Good Life.

Each and every one of us needs time to relax and enjoy quality time with our loved ones. This can only be possible when we learn to value and respect time. Life is very busy and if we fail to value time, we will waste it on unnecessary stuffs, which may have major effects on our relationships with the people we love most.

When we are able to manage our time well; we  don’t get worried about things but, have better chances of improving our health because, we become less stressed about life’s challenges and achieve maximum productivity with our lives. 

Your next level in life is determined by your value of time. Be productive by valuing the time you have. Time is very short to waste on destiny destroyers.
