Introduction: The value of time is very great. It is more valuable than money. Time waits for no man.
Characteristics: Time goes on and but does not come back. We can make up loss of money by industry, the loss of health by medicine but lost time is never found again.
Benefit of doing work: Man is born to work. Our life is short but we have many things to do. So we should make the best use of our time. A man who does his work in time is able to do all his duties with the success. As he is always ready for work he finds time to do all his duties.
Evil effect of idleness: An idle man sits idle without doing any useful work. So he lives in misery and dies in misery. A man should therefore, give up idleness and use the present time as best he can.
What to remember: Everybody should bear in mind that one can be great by making the right use of his time. Again he who does not make use of his time, leads a very sad life.
Conclusion: Those who waste time in idleness cannot succeed in life. Even some of the lower animals make the right use of time. Ants, bees, birds and other animals are active. The wastage of time keeps us away from happiness and progress. We should, therefore, make the right use of time.
