For a student, be it a beginner or doing masters it is not very difficult to get encounter with those three magical words i.e. MAKE A TIMETABLE accompanied with free tips on how to follow it whole heartedly for the rest of your life no matter if the lecturer has him/her self ever followed the one.

It’s not about impressing or setting an example for anyone by making and following a timetable, it’s also not about no timetable means no self discipline, but it’s all about you. Time management techniques also never talk about pre-defined time tables for one’s brain. If I am allowed to define Self-Timetable, it would go like this:

“It is measured by which an individual tries to build a cage around him/her self where it is not only difficult to breathe freely but also very tough to love and comprehend what one does.”

Our body cannot work 24×7 and needs some rest once we are physically exhausted, in the same fashion our brain also needs to take rest once it has worked for the whole day. But this is not possible to happen when our mind is engulfed in the arena of timetable.

On the contrary, I do accept that it is necessary for trains and many other things which influences the life of others to have timetable and strictly adhere to it because once it is disturbed it disturbs the schedule of all dependents.

In a nutshell, if you wish to reach to zenith, give wings to your brain to work on its own way rather forcing a timetable on it. BECAUSE winners don’t do different things but they do things differently.
