Time management is important in life. You may have several different activities going on at once, and you must organize them accordingly. This post is about time management in a more specific sense. We need to talk about prioritizing your time with the things you want do in your life besides the obvious (school, work, family/friends). We pack our day with so amny things and some of them are more important than others. People say they don’t have time to do what they love, but I think the problem is, they don’t see it as significant so they clear it out from their schedule completely. If you like to sew clothes or play a sport, set aside time to do that! I prioritize writing because it is something I love and take seriously. I don’t make money from it and I’m not getting a degree for it either. I write for me. ME. There’s nothing wrong with that.
We all have what we need to get done (academics or work) and then there are side projects as I like to call them. They are equally as crucial in life if you allow them to be. It shows a lot of discipline too. If you like to go hiking set aside weekends for that. If you like to sing, go to karaoke nights. If you like to dance, create choreography. These activities can teach you skills you wouldn't learn in other fields. It makes you a more well-rounded person when you are involved in different fields, especially if they're different from each other. A person like that brings a new insight to the table. Writing makes me more of a creative person and I bring that aspect to anything I am involved in. Whether it's the way I create a presentation, or the way I solve a problem. These side projects can become something real if you allow them to be. Make it a challenge. You must prioritize your time. We spend too much of it listening to others telling us how to live our lives. Do what makes you happy too!
