We should always manage our time in such a way that our time will not be wasted for unnecessary things. One who can manage time is a successful person. To get success in life and to be a great personality, we must always learn to manage the time. We must do everything in a well-planned manner, dividing every unit of time to take full advantage of it. If we manage our time properly, we can get prosperity, enjoyment of luxuries, and peace of mind, indeed everything. Otherwise, we lose everything. It depends on all of us what we want to choose.

These are days when we are locked down with more free time, unlike the past days. Instead of complaining about ‘getting rusty’ out of doing nothing, think about ‘getting ready’ to make the maximum benefit out of the moments that are welcoming us always. Effective and meaningful tasks can be performed like attending online certification courses, developing new skills, reading books, doing exercises and yoga for physical fitness, trying out new recipes, finding out hidden talents within us, brushing up old fancies, spending time with family members and much more to make corona days productive and fruitful.

There are things that money cannot buy for us. Time once lost can never be regained.  No matter how far we go for it and how much effort we put from our side to go back to that ‘one lost second’, everything will be in vain.

‘Good Old Times’ is a very common phrase that we come across often-be it a caption in WhatsApp status, Instagram post, personal blog etc. For some, it may mean that bygone years were the best and that they are not happy with the present. For others, it may be the expression of their past good memories and that they are just rekindling it through such a caption. Whatever the case be, to be happy always and to make the best out of each and every second of our life should be the one and only priority of our life.

Instead of lamenting over whatever that couldn’t be done, and all the valuable time that was lost doing nothing, be hopeful for the good times yet to come and prepare oneself to fill one’s own store with the best memories ever.
