Value Every Minute

Value Every Minute

To realize the value of one year: Ask a student who has failed a final exam.

To realize the value of one month: Ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of one week: Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of one hour: Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of one minute: Ask the person who has missed the train, bus or plane.

To realize the value of one second: Ask a person who has survived an accident.

To realize the value of one millisecond: Ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympics.

Time waits for no one.

Treasure every moment you have. You will treasure it even more when you can share it with someone special.

I have read this poem several times but never realized how true it is,until I experienced it myself.

I failed in my final exam,it was so shocking for me as I had never tasted the taste of failure before.Then I thought failure is not the end of life I thought of giving it another try,I filled my exam form and was expecting exams to be held in the month of November,like it happens every year.As it was my final year papers,I didn't have to attend lectures because course was completed from the college's side.I completely lost connection with my friends and classmates as I was busy with my job and other activities.I simply had no clue about the new developments, as the result I had no information about my examination being rescheduled and were suppose to start a month before.

I being so careless,I didn't keep note of my exam time table and got to know about my exams only after they were over.Due to my unawareness,I could not give my annual exam I had nothing left in my hands except cursing myself.Due to my careless behavior I lost valuable time of my life.But with this experience of my life now I have learned the value of time.

So learn to value time before its too late!!!
