How To Control Your Time?

Time is an allocation, Time is energy, Time is money.

By Ankur Warikoo

We are not aware of how we spend our routines. Everyone says the same words that “we have only 24 hours a day, use them wisely”, But only a few are the pilots of our plane. Among them, I admire Ankur Warikoo as the sailor of the biggest ship and I am fortunately one of the passengers.

Here we go through a brief explanation of one of his courses about time management. Most people see time as money but time is also an energy. In 24 hours we have 86,400 rupees, But the question is how far we are using it.

How To Allocate Time?

The allocation of time in a matrix form gives us a lot of clarity. So in the 2×2, we divide time-based into 2 parameters. They are

What if some work takes more time, Sometimes we go to the party and we might spend an hour more. We are humans right! we can’t say no to our childhood friend’s wedding.

Sometimes it might be some urgent and important work like building profiles and resumes for applying for an internship or job and we might not be aware of some easy profile building platforms like oneplace.me. Then we spend our days and nights on the same work which is really not worth it.

That’s why our third dimension of seeing time adds here in our 2×2 matrix. The third parameter gives us a decision about spending more time or less.

Now let us go with all the permutations and combinations.

Bucket list of work and time

Anything that comes for the allocation of time fits in any one of those combinations for sure. Start spending time on how you spend your time and how you should spend your time. Stick to your schedule and strictly stay on it.

Summary

Try to sit at least 30 minutes at the end of the week and analyze how you spend your week. A wise man always spends more than half of his time on important works(more than 50%). Document where you spend your time.

Don’t put pressure on being wise and spending most of your time on important work. First be aware of how much time you are spending on urgent works, important works, and both urgent and important works. Then try to improve the ratio of your time on the important works.
