It will not work for everyone. If you see at-least any of the two symptoms in yourself, go ahead. Otherwise, leave here.
Happy news, if you are reading this text. It means you have a positive approach towards yourself and the issues. You need to learn the art of Time Management. ALMIGHTY ALLAH has provided everyone with equal 24 hours a day, 30 days and Month and 365 days a year. But why we see some persons have MORE in life than you. Actually the Successful person is one who Manage the Time Wisely, Effectively and most important Purposefully.
The first and foremost thing I will advise in this regard is Discipline. The Self-Discipline is the first start towards knowing and managing yourself. The rest is on the rest till this. You cannot manage the rest, if you cannot manage yourself. Start knowing yourself, make your Work & To-Do lists, Wish lists, Strength and Weaknesses lists and many more what you want. I will specially advise you to make a Not-Possible list and put all the things which can not be possible. Remember everything is not possible for everyone. Prioritize them and start managing them. What should be done? What will be the benefit for this particular task? How it should be done? What time and cost will it input start benefiting me? What quality results will be acceptable for me?
Next to Self-Discipline is, Concentration. Stop multi-tasking anymore. Naturally, we want to get more by doing multiple but it is wrong approach. Doing less but with control is thousand times better than starting with bulk and leaving incomplete and un-understandably. According to a famous American psychologist Harry Lorayne, Nervous breakdown is not due to work-load or hard working itself, rather it is due to the fact that the problems find no solution. Each and every issue need due concentration to get melt. It counts more than paying time, if you are not doing it with attention. Most often, people use to say that we paid enough time but no results. The reason is how much you engage yourself with the task ? How much you have developed deeper relationship which is required ? The highest level of sincerity and dedication plays magical role in improving results with in almost no time. No issue, from today start building a connection with each and every activity of life. Initially it will be difficult for you to pay attention to the details but eventually you will increase your results, boost your memory and faster your actions. Moreover, you will learn more than what you are actually doing.
