Personal time is disappearing as it increases the working time. The trial is less clear and problems that could be resolved in minutes by a fresh mind, are resolved within hours. Work faster and work more hours are poor strategies to manage ourselves. However, many people still believes that these approaches will enable them to achieve all the things that need to be made. They do not realize has that not matter how much do, always there is more to do, and must make hard decisions for priorities and have the courage to follow the decisions with actions. Time is a paradox. It seems to us that we don’t have enough time and yet have all the time that there is. No matter how much we do, there are always endless alternatives for investing the time.
The solution to this paradox, then, is to focus first on the most important things in security that there is always enough time for things that are really needed. Once we have accepted the fact that we can’t do everything and let us act as such, we will have taken a very important step towards effective management of our time. Identify priorities will become less of one problem. As a resource, time presents another paradox: If we don’t use it, it disappears anyway. As a result, the quality of this resource depends from it rather than use it. The knowledge that we are wasting this resource so personal when we didn’t use it properly, should be sufficient to decide to spend the time better.
