Posted by Karan in General, IIIT centric.

This is something I have been contemplating on for quite soemtime now. How can people manage to juggle acads, sports, organising events etc and still find time for that coffe with their friends? Well, its all about time management, my dear! This, is one skill which I believe every succesful person needs to develop.. be it a poltician, a software professional or a doctor.

In today’s stress- filled world, relationships often go for a dive. After working for 12 hours a day, who has the time for anything else? This is where time management steps in. Everything can be juggled well, provided we plan out and use our time effectively. My policy is to utilize every extra-half hour you get. That doesnt mean that you stop chatting with your friends or don’t maintain a social life.. nah that is extremely important. Its just that you should know when to do what; for this setting of priorities is very important. And this, cannot be defined by anyone, it has to come from within yourself. Once your priorities are set, things will get going automatically. You will know for yourself what you ought to do and what not. For this, you have to think out for yourselves.. Think about every activity and the time you allot it. The answer will surely come from within; you just need to think a little. Once you do that, I am sure that you fill find time for anything you want to do, you just need to allot the correct amount of time and space to it.
I have been trying a few things for the past few years, and they have worked quite well. In our batch, I find great time managers in Gaurav Kharkwal, Sambhav Jain and Subhashis Chand . They often manage to juggle things, and most importantly, they have their priorities set. They can be a major inspiration too!

i gues there r two ways to juggle many things:
first one is have a time table and allocate time blah blah and so on
the second would be doing everything spontaneously as per ur likings and not stay idle ..
second one’s better rite? 😀
