Many years ago, there was a gentleman regarded as a great statesman and a diplomat.
He was highly committed and working consistently. But people were complaining that he was not doing this and that, he was not meeting them, etc.
He got fed up with this, so he started noting down and observing himself.
He made a diary and he wrote a list of worth doing tasks, less important tasks, least important tasks, and avoidable tasks. He ticks marked finished tasks daily.
After a week, he perceived, he had been working on less important and avoidable tasks more than worth doing tasks.
So now he understood why people were complaining!
And he is none other than the founding fathers of the United States Benjamin Franklin, and this a story from his real-life.
Generally, we are not aware of the fact that we can avoid some tasks and could do other important tasks first. We are just not deciding on our priorities.
If we make a habit of no compromise with worth doing tasks, it will be easy for us to optimize our time properly. We will get the best from our time.
Let’s understand it with an example. If your teacher gives you some homework, and you finish it on time.
The first words that come out of your mouth would be – HASSH (feel relaxed) this is truth.
Otherwise, on the other hand, you will tell you, mummy, “I will not go to the market, I will not entertain younger brother, please don’t disturb me, I am not done with my homework.”
So, it’s important to learn how to prioritize and manage time well!
