Time management should be one of the qualities that you should take very seriously if you are looking at your personal development. It is rightly said that a person who does not respect time does not respect his or her own self.
How would one define time management actually? Is it about making a timetable and abiding by it? Or is it about allotting a specific time to do your daily tasks? Or is it about separating time for work, play, food and everything else that a human needs to do?
If you put it simply, time management is all about scheduling your tasks in any way that ensures their accomplishment. It does not matter how much time you allot to your tasks; the main thing is that you should be able to accomplish everything that you take up. There should be no wastefulness of time. Even entertainment and recreation—two very important human necessities—should be accounted for. When a person masters the art of doing that, they can be called as good time managers.
Another important quality that people must have that dovetails with time management is prioritization. We take up various tasks, and we already have so many different things to do throughout the day. However, our time resources are limited. That is why prioritization becomes important. This ensures that we accomplish the most important tasks first. Which are the more important tasks? The tasks on which the fulfillment of other tasks are related—those are the ones that need to be prioritized. When you learn to prioritize, you automatically manage your time in a better way.
So, whether you are a housewife or you are the president of a country, it is quite essential that you learn to value time. Time is a finite resource that we have—it is our utmost responsibility to make the most of every second that we have and use it fruitfully for some kind of advancement, either our own or of the people and things we care for and love.

Protecting the environment, or going green, is something more and more people are doing these days. You may be wondering if the things you do will make an impact. Here are five myths about going green: 1. One of the misconceptions about going green is that it uses more energy to recycle than it saves. However, part of the reason recycling is used by many manufacturers is that it does actually save energy. For instance, it takes 95% more energy to make a new aluminum can than it does to recycle one. Another benefit of recycling is that most items can be recycled over and over again. 2. Another myth about going green is that it is better to keep an old appliance and get it fixed rather than buying a new one. Appliances can be expensive so no one would blame you for trying to save money by repairing an old appliance instead of getting something new. However, if you are looking from an eco friendly perspective, buying new is definitely ‘greener.’ This is because newer app
