All we must have a routine for our everyday life. If we frame a routine according to our schedule and try to follow it, we can organize our energy and time. If we prepare a routine for our children from their early childhood and encourage them to follow the routine, they will certainly get benefit from it in future. All we are getting 24 hours in a day but unable to complete our schedule due to lack of a routine. We are unable to organize our daily life. We are blaming the `time` as time is very short. Actually, we need discipline in our daily life. We are not even aware the importance of discipline in human life.
As we are growing day by day, some habits in our life are also growing day by day. These habits are may be good or bad for our human life. Good habits are acting like our good friends. Bad habits are harmful. They can destroy our precious human life. Our human life is our capital. The businessman is going to start his business with some capital. Our human life is also our capital. If we want to develop our human life, we must follow a daily routine strictly.
Try to start your daily life as early as possible. So, early rising is must. If you are an early riser, you can finish some important work like prayer, mental concentration, and physical exercises before the sunrise. Gradually this will be a good habit. The junior members of your family will also follow you. They will also early riser. Divide your daily programme into some areas. The key areas are - prayer, mental concentration, physical exercise, study, newspaper reading, domestic work, marketing, official work, guiding children in their studies, watching news in television etc, etc.
You can fix time for each of this programme and strictly follow it. Suppose, as a student, you have fixed your study hours in the morning from 7 am to 9 am (two hours). You must go to your study table exactly at 7 am and continue your study up to 9 am. If you fix 9 pm to 9.30 pm for watching news in television, you must open your TV exactly at 9 pm. Please remember, 9 pm means 9 pm, not 8.50 pm or 9.10 pm.
It is very easy to prepare a routine for ourselves, more easier to prepare a routine for others. But, it is very difficult to follow that routine, unless we have the urge to develop. In the beginning, it is very difficult to follow the routine, but gradually our good habits will grow through our perseverance.
If you read The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin (1706 – 1790), you will find his daily routine. Please try to collect this book from your nearest library and read the wonderful autobiography of a `self- made man`.
