Describe to me in detail a time when you took the initiative in a major project.

IsnĀ“t it the TIME and the lack of it to finish all your duties and activities?

Gadgets and modern tools, like cellular phones, microwave ovens, computers, and portable electronic organizers (PDAs) have made our lives easier and have given us the necessary advantage to lessen our time to work on certain tasks.

The connectivity of people through mobile technology, as well as the vast and efficient transportation system in industrialized and currently developing countries, leads to faster communication and social linkages.

Changes like these have emphasized the importance of time management and a creation of a more organized and practical lifestyle. Time has therefore been measured and controlled through these developments, so we have to adjust according to the demands of our times.

In our daily struggle towards our goals, time and the lack of it becomes our enemy...

But this should not be the case!

Since time is also a human invention, a form of measurement in knowing our past or history. The narrative of time, or how we have organized our memories and our past experiences using the standards of time, is very important in knowing the development of human civilization as well as societies and cultures.

More than this, we can also influence the changes in time and space relationship. We can manage these changes and prepare ourselves for the tasks within the time being that we can foresee.

Time Management is an important skill and knowledge especially in organizing complicated social structures.

In practical terms, we must recognize the importance of every moment and how each daily perception of second, minute, hour, etc, affects our survival and interaction with others in our rapidly changing environment. We could learn new things by knowing the importance of little changes that could affect larger phenomena.

On a more practical note, a decision made within a matter of seconds or days can change a destiny of a person, more so, even a nation.

The Millennium Celebration during the onset of the year 2000 was a major event and had inspired millions of people on what to expect and what to reflect as we marked two thousand years of human triumphs, defeats, and struggles. That celebration marked some of the most important achievements and even worries, as time is about to enter its historical leap. The millennium bug made some of us anxious. It scared people with cataclysmic scenarios of technology going frenzy as the two zeros of the year 2000 enters into our state of mind, resulting in outdated computer technology.
