How you spend your time is more important than how you spend your money. Because with proper time management comes discipline and with discipline comes everything and anything in life.
There are 4 main components in this product.
Time Bucket Approach uses the concept of Time Management Matrix, which is useful in managing the time effectively. Time spent by us can be divided into 4 Buckets.
These Time Bucket Sheets are followed by Weekly Analysis Sheets and Monthly Analysis Sheets, which help us to aggregate the data for the respective week and month respectively. These sheets encourage the users to impose goals on them for the upcoming weeks and month. These introspection sheets unfold how well our life is balanced in all the dimensions.
Usage: The users can spend just 5 minutes and fill in this Time Bucket sheet. This will help each individual in understanding in which time bucket, the time of 24 hours is being spent. This provides us an analytical insight into planning our time better and using it wisely. The total sum in all the buckets must be equal to 24 hours. Make sure not even a single minute goes unaccounted.
Make sure you fill in the Weekly Analysis Sheets and Monthly Analysis Sheets after every week and month as well to track the progress and take effective steps to manage time efficiently.
“The Wheel of Life” also has a component of knowledge for every day. It contains knowledge about various things. The idea of this component is to promote curiosity, scientific temper, aptitude, vocabulary and attitude (personality). This Knowledge Daily Dose has multiple elements which promote multi-dimensional progress of an individual. This plays a complementary role with the Component 1: The Time Bucket Approach.

The most important thing in life is to create a MISSION STATEMENT for our life. This helps us know what we want and what is important for us. This helps us focus on your work without being pulled in multiple directions or feeling guilty about not concentrating enough in our aspirations. IT IS ALL ABOUT BEING TRUTHFUL TO OUR MISSION STATEMENT. Failure is not when we fall short of achieving our goals. It is when we don’t have goals worthy enough.
But how do we stay focused, with so many distractions and challenges around us? Here, we have to understand, in spite of many odds in life, there are ordinary people who have achieved the impossible with their extraordinary efforts. We must accept that hard work has no substitute and success has no shortcuts.
When we tend to get distracted, thinking about such great people who mastered the art of perfection and excellence, we can come back and stay focused. So, we feel it is necessary to read about one such personality once in a week so that we get inspired, stay inspired and inspire others as well.
This is to make all of us realize, there is infinite potential in each one of us. Let us not restrict ourselves for small or big challenges that we face in daily life.
If you can’t fight for yourself, who else? If not now, When?
People achieve great things and impossible things just by Focus. Stay Focused.
The inspirational theme for the month of January 2020 is "WOMEN AGAINST ODDS". We present you with the inspirational stories of 5 women who fought against odds and achieved what they wanted to. If you take a closer look at the lives and achievements of these women, they will inspire not just us but next generations to come.
Women play a crucial and constructive role in making a healthy family, healthy society and in building a strong nation. But it is so alarming and pathetic to see that women are being assaulted for various reasons nowadays. It was Nirbhaya yesterday, it is Disha today and tomorrow? Let us raise our voice against such atrocities and mend and mold our children and ourselves in making a society where all the women can live peacefully, safely and give wings to their dreams.
“Jagruthi” – an Youtube channel from EduactILabs is working towards creating such awareness and providing solutions to problems faced by the women.
Let us encourage the girl child to dream and achieve.

Wasting time is plundering yourself. Practically, wasting time is inevitable, but there are strategies that will help us waste less.
We are trying to improve awareness about the time we spend each day. As our awareness improves, we enhance your ability to choose how to spend our time.
There are certain simple but powerful techniques to make us move from the buckets of inefficiency (T1, T3 & T4) to the bucket (T2) of vision, purpose and productivity.
Where should we focus?
Ideally, as researchers say, we should be spending 70-75% of the time on T2 activities while rest are for remaining buckets. We should focus on minimizing the time that we are spending on T1, T3 & T4. If we are spending too much of time on T1, it will become increasingly larger and will dominate your life completely. T3 and T4 include things that do not matter. Effective people spend more time on T2 activities and minimize the time spent on TI, and do not worry too much about T3 and T4.
Importance of T2:
T2 activities are the heart of effective personal management. To spend most of our time in this bucket T2, we must first be clear about what our priorities are, and then we must learn to say no to other activities, some of them urgent and apparently important.
We should be proactive and extra vigilant in attending to the activities that are important but not urgent (T2). Because they will not demand your attention but if you neglect them, they eventually will turn out to be emergencies (T1) leading you to live always in reactive mode or in a continuous crisis situation.
To move towards T2 all that we should do is to fill these sheets daily and understand where we stand and plan to move to where we want.
Remember: The best judge of which quadrant you are in is you.
