Time, as people say, is a temporary interruption in eternity. It is a commodity that can neither be brought nor be sold. The only thing you can do with time is to use it. If you don’t use it, you will lose it.
Apostle Paul encourages us to ‘redeem the time’, make the most of every opportunity (Eph 5:16, NIV).Imagine what you could have done with the hours you spent watching a pornographic video CD at home, partying, gossiping and discussing irrelevant issues. You were destroying your mind while you could have been doing something that would teach you or in some way enable you to improve your life.
The only time you have is now. Get busy and use it wisely. Time is God’s gift, use every minute of yours constructively, effectively and efficiently. Never cease to use your time wisely. Refuse to be one of those who waste time and then complain that they don’t have enough time. Make the hours of your day count.
Remember, it is said that he who fails to plan, plans to fail. Plan your time at the beginning of each day and stick to it. Do all you can to achieve your purpose in school. Some of the practical steps to achieving this include the following: (a).Make good notes (b).Study your notebooks and prescribed texts with the help of a comprehensive syllabus (c).Designate study time and venue (d).Make intelligent friends who can inspire you to excellence (e).Avoid noisy environment (f).Rest and play when necessary (g).Set lofty goals that can be assessed daily.
Take active control of your time because if you don’t, others will do it for you by engaging you in unprofitable discussions or actions. Loss of time will make you poor academically but adequate management of it will make you a diligent student. Do you see a man skillful in his work? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men (Proverbs 22:29).
Finally, I leave you with the words of Apostle Paul in 1Cor 6:12 which says “All thing are lawful for me, “but not all things are helpful. All things are lawful for me, “but I will not be enslaved by anything”. I urge you today to seek after those things that build up, act right, think wisely and set your priorities aright. As you avoid irrelevancies, you would gather for yourself wealth of knowledge needed for a successful stay or performance in school.

Very nice article. The use of our time should also be directly connected to our passion and purpose. You might be interested in the article I posted entitled "Video Games or Visión."
