Time Management is your key to success!

One often wonders what opportunities would present itself if we invest in something worthwhile. However, before wondering about the fruits of one’s investment, it is essential that one identifies what that ‘something worthwhile’ means for each one of us. One has to create ways in which one can spend time ‘productively.’ Being productive can mean different things to different people but the essence of the word, i.e.- meet the goals you set for yourself, remains constant.

Time plays a crucial element in being productive. Planning and spending time wisely on things and situations, can help achieve one’s goals, some of which can be life changing. On the other hand, time spent poorly or wasting time can lead to demotivation, an unsuccessful present and future and self-destruction. The one common factor amongst all the ‘successful’ people around the world would be that they have probably used their time strategically while climbing their ladder of success.

We have all heard the saying that time is of essence. It provides us with possibilities of a better future, allows us to deal with various situations and manage our responsibilities. People who manage their time well are less stressed, have high self-esteem, pursue hobbies and interests, socialise, reach out to others in need and perform well.

NIIT Foundation is one such organisation working in underserved communities that encourages the young generation to spend their time constructively by enrolling in career and non-career courses that will skill them and provide them with employability. NIIT Foundation provides training, guidance, career counselling, placement opportunities to students. The organisation also works on developing change maker qualities and the personality of each student enrolled in the courses. The aim is that youth become more digitally literate, develop communication and confidence, develop civic sense, become more helpful in nature and most importantly lead a productive life.

During the pandemic, many lost their jobs and educational institutions shut down. NIIT Foundation ensured that students do not waste time and learning does not stop. Many students made the most of this opportunity by enrolling for the short term and long-term courses provided online.

We have all heard the saying that time is of essence. We encourage all young people to use their time well, learn something new and constantly work towards achieving one’s goal, become self-sufficient and productive.

According to most sources, Lorum Ipsum can be traced back to a text composed by Cicero in 45 BC. Allegedly, a Latin scholar established the origin of the text by compiling all the instances of the unusual word ‘consectetur’ he could find and eventually recognized it as a passage from ‘De finibus bonorum et malorum’ (On the extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, a book that was very popular in the Middle Ages: “Neque porro quisquam est, qui dolorem ipsum, quia dolor sit, amet, consectetur, adipisci velit… ” (Approximately: “Nor is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain…”). A typical Lorem Ipsum text goes like this: “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisici elit, sed eiusmod tempor incidunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim …”.

It seems that only fragments of the original text remain in the Lorem Ipsum texts used today. One may speculate that over the course of time certain letters were added or deleted at various positions within the text. This might also explain why one can now find slightly different versions. Due to the age of the Lorem Ipsum text there are no copyright issues to contend with.

In the 1960s, the text suddenly became known beyond the professional circle of typesetters and layout designers when it was used for Letraset sheets (adhesive letters on transparent film, popular until the 1980s) Versions of the text were subsequently included in DTP programmes such as PageMaker etc.

The spread of computers and layout programmes thus made dummy text better known. While in earlier times several lines of the Lorem Ipsum text were repeated in the creation of dummy texts, today the full text of Cicero’s ‘De finibus’ serves as the basis for many dummy text or Lorem Ipsum generators. Based on ‘De finibus’, these generators automatically create longer sections of the Lorem Ipsum text or various other filler texts.

WHY GIVING IS IMPORTANT?

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi. Remember when you were worried about your decision, needed financial advice, or needed a little help. Perhaps you had someone out there to help you, and if you didn’t, then difficulties seemed paramount and unending. ‘Giving’
