All of us work hard for success in life. And sooner or later we realize that, among other things, it is only through proper time-management we can succeed in doing any work. We keep on trying endlessly but things just do not seem to happen since happening is a function of time. Things will happen only when time is right. Bhagavad Gita advises to live the life in equanimity, unaffected by the ups and downs in life that are functions of time.
There is time for every purpose under the sky, but there is never enough. Time once spent is spent forever and it cannot come back, though health, wealth etc., can be recreated. We all have the same amount of time but it is just a matter of how we utilize it. In order to produce greater results one is required to change one`s strategy with respect to time. Time flies, crawls and races. Time heals all wounds, but it is also the great destroyer. Again, like the tide, time waits for no one, but in dramatic moments it also stands still. In Internet, the time has, in essence, triumphed over space. Temporal boundaries, that separate one place from another, are abolished, making the entire world a global village.
Our senses tell us that time flows. In other words, the past is gone and cannot be changed; the future is undetermined, and we are in reality living in the present. We are influenced by events in the past, so that we act in the present to shape the future events. From past to future through present, that is the chain of events. We think that past is something which has slipped out of existence. It, of course, lives on, by leaving an impression or samskara on our mind. So there is no need to grieve for the future or the past. The past is contained in the present moment. So the only job left to us is to act properly through proper discretion of the present circumstances.
