Life only happens once; only good time management and planning can make it a productive one

It has indeed been a hectic first week or so for me. There has been so much influx of information coming from all directions. It surely can be daunting, but I guess I was mentally prepared for it. One of the various things that has surely had quite an impact on my mind is one observation put forth by Vagelis in the very first class.

Why do children learn so much? I have been contemplating over it and feel like sharing with you all some food for thought:
• We need to ask whether we are giving enough time to ourselves. Children learn so much because they have the most important commodity in life: TIME. Are we managing our time in an effective manner? Are we wasting our time on leisure activities that do not matter?
• Children are not concerned with the long term future. They live in the moment and thus they learn. Albeit long term planning is imperative, how many of us actually plan on short term goals and eventually go on to achieve them? We need to make the best out of every moment we live.
• Stop taking life too seriously and worrying unncessarily since it is not going to add one cubit to our stature, so why worry?
• Stop complicating things. Usually, things are not that complex unless we make them.
• It is okay to question. It is okay to look foolish for a few minutes perhaps. It is even better to learn!
• No task, no theory, no subject can be learnt, understood fully or achieved unless we devote the right time and effort required for it. Learning is a gradual process and commands perseverance.

To conclude, effective time management, hard work, and perservance are the key to success.

It is fun to be back in the phase where we learnt the most :)
