Wasting time of modern man

Time is more precious than anything else. Modern man is more anxious that wasted time is wasted wealth. In his greed he goes away from his regular way of doing things and wastes a lot of time in unnecessary things. He squanders a lot of mental time in wandering over short cuts. He wastes a lot of his mental time on things such as finding out excuses for his wandering rather than on fulfilling what he has to do to reach his goals.

Technology is becoming more efficient and more productive. Automatisation of industry is the modern common goal. Streamlining the works in industries has become a normal process today, especially during these years of recession.
Then where comes the waste of time?

We waste more time in unnecessary jobs and procrastination


If you look at life carefully, you can find all works you are doing do not really need move towards your end of success. Industrial reports say that more people waste more than 48% of their working time in distractions and using internet for outside activities;more than 30% waste time in their personal business. Gossiping and other unnecessary jobs occupy much of their time.

Tips to avoid time wasters


1) Try to be prompt in your duties
Lame excuses lead to wasting time. When you go late, you try to say excuses. You waste time on finding excuses. Being prompt in your duties will keep you away from time wasters. It will increase your self-esteem. Even if you happen to be late, tell the truth instead of giving lame excuses. If you say, “I am sorry; it will not happen again,” it will build up your mental energy instead of wasting time in brainstorm ideas.

2) Creating small time slots
By creating small time slots you can organize well your work without wasting time. Deadline can motivate your work. This can also bring perfection in your work.

3) Plan your work well
While planning your work you may give unpleasant works the first preference. When you finish them, you will have more initiative to carry out the rest easily.

4) Avoid wandering attention
This will avoid procrastination. It is human nature to keep the ball rolling in your hands instead of passing it on. Time does not wait for anyone. By training the brain to be in the present you can achieve this.

5) Avoid gossiping
Gossiping always produces negative results. Talking about others behind may give you some sadistic pleasure, but it is dangerous for you as well as others.

By wasting time you lose your gains. This does not mean that you should turn into an automaton. You are human and you have to respect your personality and personal traits. In spite of all your drawbacks you can succeed in life if you try to avoid the time wasters.

Good points to remember! We also waste time by not getting into God's word daily! Getting into God's word not only helps us maintain a positive outlook on life but in doing so God will direct our paths!!

Awesome tips! I couldn’t agree more on the tips you gave, these are motivational for me. If you can also consider the use of time tracking software (just like Time Doctor) as a way to avoid time wasters at work this will make you more excited to know that it can track your productivity and provides you analytics on how you managed your time. I’m also using it and it’s effective in monitoring your work.

Time that is spent in the internet cafe, followed by having coffee and snacks at the coffee shop or restaurant is a routine feature. Everyone wants to achieve success in short span of time, however it must be kept in mind that Rome was not built in a day. There is no shortcut to success. Thus if one does what one feels he can do the best then things can change. What matters the most is getting success at the right moment of time. Time is related to priority and in the name of organizing things if one wastes his time then there is no one to blame, but the individual himself.
