Welcome to purposeful living today. It's the beginning of a new week. In this new week, we pray that you will experience uncommon open doors in those area of your life that seems stagnant. Fulfill purpose blog wishes you a splendid and glorious week ahead.

 Today's matter is directed towards being at the top in life. If indeed anyone is asked the question of whether he or she wants to be a high achiever, the answer in all cases is obviously a "yes". But one thing we must know is that life is all about principles. If we do not live a principled life, then we shouldn't be in expectation of that which a principled life produces. A principled lifestyle is what helps us live a purposeful fulfilled life on earth. One key requirement of a high achiever is simply TIME MANAGEMENT.

The beginning of Wisdom is: get Wisdom (skillful and godly Wisdom)! [For skillful and godly Wisdom is the principal thing.] And with all you have gotten, get understanding (discernment, comprehension, and interpretation). Proverbs 4:7

Now, before we proceed, we must define in simple terms what it means to be a high achiever. A high achiever is simply a successful person be it in academics, business, career, ministry and any other thing that life entails. It's all about being successful in and out in the sense that you recognize yourself as a successful individual and others who look at your life or look up to you also testify that indeed this person is successful. A high achiever is also a person that has laid down certain principles to live by in order to produce the outcome that comes from a principled lifestyle.

Time Management is one key SECRET that is being utilized by the successful and high flying individuals we admire out there and on the stage. We look up to them to become like them some day but we do not know what is happening behind the scene in their life that makes them produce such outcome everyone desires. Now, let's talk about Time Management.

Wikipedia defines Time management as the process of planning and exercising conscious control of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectiveness, efficiency or productivity.

"If you fail to plan, you plan to fail" - Unknown

“Time management” is also the process of organizing and planning how to divide your time between specific activities. 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. Failing to manage your time damages your effectiveness and causes stress. A high achiever is not just always busy because you can be busy but no result or progress. We must, in order to become a high achiever focus more on the results achieved rather than the work being done.

The highest achievers manage their time exceptionally well. By using the time-management techniques in this section, you can improve your ability to function more effectively – even when time is tight and pressures are high.

Good time management requires an important shift in focus from activities to results as has been stated earlier. Being busy isn’t the same as being effective. (Ironically, the opposite is often closer to the truth.)
Spending your day in a frenzy of activity often achieves less, because you’re dividing your attention between so many different tasks. Good time management lets you work smarter – not harder – so you get more done in less time.

“Time management” refers also to the way that you organize and plan how long you spend on specific activities. As a student, we are faced with the challenge of effective management of time because certain activities could come up that we did not expect or plan for. But the truth is as we learn time management today, it will open our eyes to certain truth we do not know. It may seem counter-intuitive to dedicate precious time to learning about time management, instead of using it to get on with studies and work, but the benefits are enormous which includes :
-Greater productivity and efficiency.
-A better professional reputation.
-Less stress.
-Increased opportunities for advancement.
-Greater opportunities to achieve important life and career goals.

Failing to manage your time effectively can have some very undesirable consequences which includes :
-Missed deadlines.
-Inefficient work flow.
-Poor work quality.
-A poor professional reputation and a stalled career.
-Higher stress levels.
Spending a little time learning about time-management techniques will have huge benefits now – and throughout your career.

In essence, Time Management is all about allocating specific time to meaningful activities that will yield results for you. You do not necessarily have to always be busy. Being busy does not mean being productive. You can be busy and not achieving anything.

 As a student, spend specific time with God, your loving Father because He alone knows the end from the beginning in your life. Don't even think of taking things that pertain to God as light because we are made to understand in 1Samuel 2:30 as God says that "He who honour me, I will honour, and those who despise me shall be lightly esteemed". If we honour God, He gives us wisdom and direction in life. He tells us and teaches us how to manage our time in order to be effective and productive. The same applies with businessmen, career men and women, ministers in God's Vineyard and whatever there is in life. When we have God, every other area of our life receives health and balance. Know that right believing produces right living. Guard your heart with all diligence. No matter the challenge you are going through, don't allow the devil poison your heart to make you think that God, the Father does not love you. He loves you so much than you can ever imagine. All He wants you to do is to call on Him. He knocks at the door of your heart and yearns that you open up for Him to come in.

Time Management is a small matter to God. He desires that we all be high fliers and achievers, that is why the scriptures makes us understand in 1John2:27 that His Anointing(the Holy Spirit) teaches us all things. There's nothing outside of what the Holy Spirit can teach us. But we remain unteacheable to the Holy Spirit if we have not given our lives to Christ and received His Spirit that He has promised to all who know Him. We must surrender our hearts to He who greatly loves us in order for Him to work out His glorious purpose in us. Just the same way we have close friends and best friends; it is also the same way Jesus wants to be close to us.

 He yearns for an intimate relationship with us all whom He so greatly loved by giving Himself up for us on the cross of Calvary. He bore our sins, infirmity, sickness, poverty, death, lack, insufficiency, negativity, reproach and all manner of evil that was in us on the Cross of Calvary in order that we die to them and live to righteousness, Holiness, Grace, fellowship with Him, love, riches, health, wealth, life, favour, fame and all there is. Why not surrender to Him today.

 You can begin a relationship now with the Lord Jesus Christ by saying this prayer:

 Lord Jesus Christ I acknowledge that I am a sinner, I believe in your death and resurrection. I ask you to forgive me my sins, I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life. I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen . If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
