Time, Is It Really Gold?


Time, Is It Really Gold?

We, as OFWs in Kuwait have to sacrifice our time to work here for the welfare of our family.

So, what I’m going to share with you now is about time management and how can we make it work for us. Time Management is a term used for the process of planning and controlling the time spent on one specific activity; this is done to increase our effectiveness, efficiency, and productivity. Time management is really important and considered to be necessary.

As the saying goes, “..we always don’t have all the time in the world”. Time is definitely gold, it is precious and impossible to restore, so we should really think carefully about how to use it. As an OFW, our main problem is coping up with our family and friends, sometimes it’s quite hard for us to manage our time to even communicate with them. My advice is not to think too negatively, leave a couple of hours at least every day to talk to them, if it seems impossible for you, study the internet because it can help you a lot for easy communication, such as e-mail and Skype and if the expensive rates of calling to overseas don’t really matter to you then it is also good to call them from time to time.

We should also apply time management for our self-improvement. Take some time to study more on how to improve ourselves by reading a couple of books in our free time as well as studying new things relating to our life.

Aside from all of these things, we should also keep to our minds and our hearts to give time to God. Start the day with him, say a little prayer, and thank him for giving you another day to live.

“Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” (Proverbs 16:3)

We may have loads of work and things to do but still, it is important for us to know that half of our life should be dedicated to God. He doesn’t require too much but what he just wanted for us to do is to remind ourselves that he is there for us.

Kabayan, we are not going to live permanently here on Earth, and we can’t be an OFW in Kuwait forever, so I encourage you to think about how to spend your time. Time is gold therefore we should treasure it as if it’s our last possession we have.
