  1. It is true that time management plays a crucial role in shaping one’s future. There is a school of thought which contends that person shouldn’t worry about coming years rather they should enjoy present. Conversely, others argue that future planning is a better utilization of time. To my way of thinking, I have to agree with latter view.
    Firstly, it is abundantly clear that in today’s uncertainty, future planning help us to overcome worst situations quickly as well as strongly. For example, five months ago, my friend had a horrible car accident in Sydney. However, he was able to get best treatment and meet all his expenses because he had insurance coverage. If he had not planned for worst case, then he would have put his family in big financial trouble.
    Secondly, it is immediately apparent that future goal settings help us to achieve our targets. A definite planning give us clear picture about our position and in turn stand in society. For instance, when I was fifteen years old, I nailed down that I wanted to become an Engineer at the age of twenty five. Because of the detailed planning, I achieved what I was aiming for. I was praised by society members for my achievement and it helped me to boost my confidence. At the same time, I strongly believe that person should not sacrifice his present by excessively focusing on future.
    At the end of the day, I pen down saying that, enjoying current time is crucial but first priority should be given to future planning. It is hoped that more and more people will appreciate the idea of time management for better life style.
