In this time of Covid – 19, many countries are facing a lockdown. It seems like everything is stopped here in this lockdown period. But something has never been stopped for anyone and anything i.e. Time. Whether you are at home or in the office or anywhere but time is just running away as per its speed. Now you have two choices, first is to let it go because you think that you can’t do anything as nothing is in your hand. And the second choice is to utilize it because even if everything is not in your hand but something is in your hand i.e. your choice of action or inaction.
In this world, the most important and perishable thing is “TIME”. And successful people know it very well and they take quick actions to utilize each and every minute. Here is some way that explains how successful people utilize their time in this lockdown period and you also can do the same.
1. Connect to yourself:
In this busy life, we forgot to talk to ourselves, to know who we are and how much potential and power we possess within us. Great personalities such as Warren Buffett, Mark Zuckerberg, Oprah Winfrey, and Jeff Bezos, everyone has equal time i.e. 24 hours and equal power as you have. But they realize their power and courage to claim for that power, within them. Now it’s your turn, to connect to yourself, do realization of your power and utilize it. Connect to mentors (virtually or physically) such as Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Dr. Vivek Bindra, etc.
2. Read Books:
This is the best way to utilize your time. It is said that “A Reader Lives A Thousand Lives Before He Dies. Intelligent people are those who also learn from others’ experiences and the book gives you the same opportunity. Some books are really worth reading such as Eat That Frog, The Power of Self-confidence, Think and Grow Rich, and Awaken The Giant Within. You can also read the book-summaries.
3. Learn Something New:
It is better to learn something new from your related field. But if you feel bored, learn something not related to your field but can add value to your life such as Drawing, Cooking, Communication Skills, Professional Typing, etc. so that you’ll enjoy while learning.
4. Learn New Languages:
It is Language that connects person to person. The people feel more comfortable and get easily connected with you when you talk to them in their local or regional language. Even for International business, an entrepreneur should learn international languages which help to close the business deals by showing comfortable and trust.
5. Skill-Up Your Key Areas:
In every field, there are some key areas such as – getting things done with others, becoming a good leader, and timely action are some key areas of management. Sometimes, people are good at all of their key areas except one. And that one unskilled key area makes them fail. During this lockdown time, you have the right time to work on that.
6. Quality Time With Family:
The best and safest place on earth is our home for us. This is the time to spend your time with your family or beloved once. If you are not at your home, be connected with them on call or via video conference. Make them feel that you are with them. Some entrepreneurs get too involved in their businesses that they give very rare or no time to their families. Now you can share your feelings, your thoughts, and love with them.
There are many more ways to utilize the time. You have to find that and take quick action on that. Because Success doesn’t know the excuses. You can fool yourself with excuses and procrastination but Success comes only by the result of the right actions. Now, it is all up to you what you want to do either grab the opportunity or let it go. All the best dear. Stay Home, and Be Safe. Take Care.
