Most devote time to wants instead of needs, speaker says

By Thomas Norton/reporter

People learned the difference between the wants and needs of time management Nov. 2 on NE Campus.

“How many of us can do everything we need to do in a day?” history instructor Andrew Hollinger asked.

Few people accept the fact that they focus more attention on the wants than needs.

Through research, Hollinger proved that more people take the time to finish the wants rather than taking care of the needs too.

“Be sure to treat your wants just as equal as your needs,” Hollinger said.

Most people would like to complete everything they want and need to do in a day, meaning time should be taken out for family, work, school and other activities.

“Exploit your time,” he said. “Make sure you use every minute of your time wisely.”

Everything that a person plans to complete in a day needs to be well-balanced and done in a timely manner.

“Time is one of our most valuable assets, yet we tend to waste it and kill it rather than investing it,” he said.

The students learned that people go by a schedule, and time is what makes the schedule.

“This was a very good presentation,” NE student Lamar Thomas said. “I liked how Mr. Hollinger told us about his life and himself. He was funny, but at the same time, he made sure managing time is important.”

Hollinger gave the students a planner to help keep their times and schedules organized.

“Plenty of people showed up, and I think a lot of people from any age can benefit from this presentation, especially us college students,” NE student Sheldon Cook said. “I would recommend this presentation to anyone.”
