“In his wisdom, God has given us a limited, finite number of hours and years to achieve our goals, both material and spiritual. He has given us these hours in sequence, day by day, month by month. If they are wasted, they are neither repeatable nor refundable. He gave the same amount to the rich & poor and to the young & old. Whatever success we may achieve in this life will come from the purpose to which we put God’s priceless gift –time ALBERT EINSTEIN


Time is an invincible force that cannot be vanquished – at all. Successful people do not find time rather they make time; if you know how to master your time, you very well know how to master your life. People squander half of their time in redundant activities not realizing the essence of time wasted. Time can neither be destroyed nor can be created. However, it can be effectively managed by us, thanks to TrackTime24.com. People learn the importance of time through their experiences, but some experiences can be disastrous and it may take away something you would not be able to replace ever. And therefore it is important to learn – How to manage “TIME

We will be throwing light on 5 most effective Time Management techniques below:

  • FREEDOM OF MIND


Freedom of Mind

Freedom personifies sanity of mind. If only your mind is not at the pace of peace, how will you walk on the right path? Therefore you require a sound and healthy mind before you begin to execute your time. While most of us brood our mind with ordeals, least of us realize the ill effect of it in the long run. We are restricting ourselves from a well-balanced life. We are so pre occupied with least important things that we barely forget where our time belongs. What needs to be done is, pacifying the inner turbulence and eliminating the psychological clutter. Once you have attained the sanctity from within, you will be in a position to execute things rightly. And as rightly said “Freedom is a state of mind”, one must accept the well-known truth.

  • GOAL SETTING

A goal can be understood as an individual’s ambitions or an aspiration. Goals can vary from one person to another depending upon – where the “bullseye” aimed at. Goal setting is a primitive approach towards time management. How does one set goals? It is a dual step process which deals with self-assessment and division of goals. Under mentioned steps explain how to set a goal.

  • Self assessment

Self-assessment is the foremost thing that needs to be done. It is very important to be acquainted with oneself. It means that you should know where your point of interest lies and what you want to do about it. Only then you will be able to implement your futuristic plans.

  • Divide your goals

There is no set format that one has to contain specific goals only, as mentioned earlier that goals can differ from one person to another. Split those goals into short term and long term goals. After classifying the goals set out for short terms and then long term goals evenly.

  • PRIORITIZE

After having defined an individualistic goal, prioritizing will come into the picture. There is plenty of affairs in our life but knowing which ones are important and which ones are not is a little wearisome. Time management commands primacy, scarceness of which will make the job tougher for you. You cannot execute everything at once, of course, multi tasking exists but to a certain extent. One of the key aspects which shouldn’t be over looked here is the one-time execution approach which says “the cracking way to do everything at once is to do one thing at a time”. There will be a dire need to prioritize your duties. Dig out time for introspection; keep a hang of what holds primary importance in your life and by fulfilling which duties you feel more satisfied, what will be the future prospects of it or how long will you be benefitted from it. These are some of the questions you must be able to pose to yourself. When you know your priority and place rest of the things secondary, you will be in a better stance of mastering your time.

  • ORGANISE

Organizing deals with arranging tasks in a systematic manner so that they can be executed optimally. Proper organized work environment will increase the chances of individual meeting predetermined targets. Work environment needs to be well ordered. Through this way, productivity is increased and thus lead to a better time management. Organizing is directed towards achieving individual objectives. It develops clarity of work and finely tuned expertise of the job. As you organize your job meticulously, you tend to utilise the available resources more efficiently. Further, you will be able to adopt changes as and when required in your work and will thus be equipped to face new challenges in your job.

Organizing also reduces work load and carve out the creativity of an individual. To get a hold of this code, devise a table and allocate tasks according to your necessity, chop bigger problems into smaller ones and use the checklist to keep you on track. Organizing your task thusly is an important rule for time management. It isn’t about the perfect state of things rather it is all about “efficiency, reducing stress, saving time and money and improving a quality of life”.

  • FOCUS

Your time management routine can go in vain if you lack focus in your work. One should be wary of the distracting forces and must make an attempt to get rid of them soon. One must never deviate from the focal point of work. Results aren’t obtained by focusing on them, but by focusing on the series of actions that produce results.

GENEVA — The battle to stem climate change may be lost as new information indicates the Amazon rain forest is turning from a carbon sink – or area that absorbs CO2 – into a source of carbon dioxide, the World Meteorological Organization warns.

The latest edition of the WMO's Greenhouse Gas Bulletin reports emissions of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide once again broke all records last year.

Let us educate each other that we are all beautiful in our way and don't need to fit in the so-called standards set by our draconian society.

Receiving compliments is something that a majority of us enjoy. Compliments, after all, make us feel good about ourselves. Sometimes compliments intended to be flattering turn out to be a tremendous turn-off, and in some cases, they are insulting. 'Beauty with brains is one of those compliments. So, is 'beauty with brains' a compliment? Without further ado, I would confidently say- NO! It doesn't matter what your gender, colour, or identity is. The answer is clearly a no.

Beauty with a brain suggests that you can only have one of these qualities and that you are an 'exception' if you possess both. "Oh, Wow! You are a beauty with brains" is a phrase that women often hear. This statement is used when a female exhibits characteristics that indicate she is intelligent. People are taken aback if they see a wise and beautiful woman because women are stereotyped to be either beautiful or brainy. The concern with this is that it is naturally assumed that men are intelligent. Women, on the other hand, are supposed to have a natural beauty. If she isn't attractive according to the norms laid down by society, it is expected that she would at the very least be intelligent. When someone manages to be both, it is regarded as a significant accomplishment.
