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.
