The value of time

A verse in the Bible says, “The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win a battle. The wise are often the poor and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. Those who are educated don’t always lead a successful life. It is all decided by chance, by being at the right place and the right time.”

One of the important things I’ve learned from my internship is the value of time. Internship requires one to put extra effort in everything that you do. You will be forced to finish a task within a limited time. Because of this, you set aside some of your personal agenda and to focus on the tasks assigned to you.

Because we only have 24 hours in a day, we should learn how to manage our time. This will help improve our ability to focus which will enhance our efficiency because we no longer lose the momentum to do the things we need to do.

Time management also improves our decision-making ability. We can prepare a list of the things that must be done or plan our course of action. This will reduce the pressure of work. When you are pressed for time and have to make decisions, you’re more likely to jump to conclusions without fully considering every option.

The saying “Time and tide wait for none” literally means that the tides that come out in the sea are there forever and do not stop or wait for anybody. Just like time, which runs continuously and never waits for anyone. We should, therefore, spend our precious and priceless time with purpose and meaning at any stage of our life. We should always understand the meaning of time and spend it wisely.

Internship also taught me the value of punctuality and timeliness. A person who understands the importance of time practices punctuality in life. A person who uses time cautiously succeeds. Successful people use their time properly. The most prosperous nations too are those that do not waste any moment. On the other hand, a person who is not punctual finds it difficult to finish his own duties. In the military, a delay by a few minutes can change impact on an operation.

I cannot forget the dean’s disappointment when we came late during an activity. He gave demerits that made us wish that we were absent. Punctuality avoids inconvenience and tension.

It’s about time then to value the precious times of your internship. As they say, time is gold. Once gone, it will never return. Manage your time correctly and never let your future clients or the community wait for you.
