Whether one is behind time, with time or ahead of time-is the crux of the problem which must be investigated and analysed to obtain the answer. Swami Dayanand Saraswati has said, "Look back, and when you do so, you are in the `NOW`. Look ahead and when you do so, again you are in the `NOW`. Look at, aren`t you in the `NOW`? `NOW` is the reality of time in which you have your reality".
"If you want to enjoy one of the greatest luxuries in life, the luxury of having enough time, time to rest, time to think things through, time to get things done and know you have done them to the best of your ability, remember there is only one way. Take enough time to think and plan things in the order of their importance. Your life will take a new zest, you will add years to your life, and more life to your years. Let all your things have their places. Let each part of your business have its time."-Benjamin Franklin.
With regard to organizing executive time, Peter Drucker, Management Guru, has said, in his book on `Effective Executive`, "Whenever a senior executive-whether in business, government or academic world-tells me that he controls more than half of his working house, I am reasonably certain that the actually has no idea where his time goes. For `discretionary time` is one of the scarcest and most precious of commodities. It is the time which executive has at his own disposal, to spend according to his own judgement on matters that are truly important.
