1. Godly Invincibility
What do Gods have? Answer is too much time, till eternity and beyond. It’s the time which makes them invincible. Good news is that you do not have to compete with Gods, but with a regular fellow earthling. Many people around us are not good at managing time, and if you are a little better than them, you are the one who can work a little more, enjoy a little more, accomplish a little more and cherish a little more. All these, ‘little more’ adds up to a lot more and people around you wonder how you achieved all this.

A person with a good time management, manages self and is happy with himself. He is motivated by himself. And his motivation comes from inside. By this I mean, that he wants to improve and grow, want to be a better version of himself. His motivation is not due to a newly launched model of a car or some external happiness. His motivation lies within himself. He sets a goal, he achieves it and takes pride and happiness in achieving the goal, then he stops and enjoys the prize and then moves on. He adds something to his personality. A confidence and happiness. This addiction of working and achieving things also gives self esteem.
10. Balanced Life
With a proper time management, people live a well sorted life without a hurry. We live all aspects of our life in a manner which is meant to be lived. In office we deal with office, at home we deal with our home priorities etc. Our tasks are done when they are meant to be done and we know the importance of time to be spent with loved ones and friends.
