Never view challenges as a disadvantage, students told
Hyderabad: Time management is the ability to use one's time effectively or productively, especially at work and it is the key to efficient working, said Dr V Chandrasekhar, Former Principal, Kakatiya Medical College, Warangal.
He delivered a motivational lecture at GITAM Deemed-to-be University, Hyderabad on Friday. School of Architecture and School of Pharmacy jointly organised this session.
Time management is the process of planning and exercising conscious control of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectiveness, efficiency, and productivity, he reiterated.
Good time management enables you to work smarter – not harder – so that you get more done in less time, even when time is tight and pressures are high, he elaborated.
He advised the students that they have to sleep at least seven hours per day, have to work hard for 8 hours and they have to spend 9 hours with their family.
'More than a third of the population is not getting enough sleep, so the focus needs to be on achieving the recommended minimum seven hours of nightly sleep.
Allotting time in your schedule for at least seven hours of sleep can keep you more alert during the day.
That way you will have the energy to enjoy all the things that are keeping you busy' he advised.
Dr Chandrasekhar motivated that, 'you should never view your challenges as a disadvantage.
Instead, it's important for you to understand that your experience facing and overcoming adversity is actually one of your biggest advantages.'
Building mental strength will help you develop resilience to those potential hazards so you can continue on your journey to success, he advised. If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere, he added.
He stressed up on instead of blindly believing something, test the hypothesis.
