Effective Time Management Is Profitable – Pastor Akonnor Tells Students

Pastor Frank Akonnor, the Resident Campus Minister of the Cape Coast University (UCC) branch of the Pentecost Students and Associates (PENSA), has challenged students of the School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Cape Coast to effectively manage their time in order to be profitable and productive in life.

Speaking on the topic, ‘Time Management,’ on Thursday, June 8, 2023 at the UCC main campus auditorium 900, Pastor Akonnor emphasised the need for students to demonstrate total commitment to time and its management towards achieving greater things for themselves.

According to the PENSA-UCC Resident Campus Pastor, good time management “leads to profitability and productivity.”

He further stated that most students waste too much of their time on unnecessary issues that add no value to their lives, resulting in their failure to achieve their goals as they grow up.

“It is difficult to count many great achievers and influencers of the world who failed to attach importance to time,” he said.

Highlighting on good time management tips, he asked the students to create a daily planner, give each task a time limit, set reminders for all tasks, avoid distractions and establish routines.

Pastor Akonnor further mentioned achievement of goals, increased productivity, and better work-life balance as some of the key benefits of time management.

In a brief address, the Head of Department for Mental Health, Dr. Jerry Paul Ninnoni, advised the students to manage their time properly while in school, as it would pave the way for their success in life.  

The workshop organised by the School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Cape Coast aimed to bring about a significant positive change in the students’ attitude towards time management through targeted activities.

Conducted in collaboration with the Department of Mental Health, the event, therefore, sought to instill proper time management skills in students and challenge them to discard the mentality of ‘Ghana Man Time’ (Ghanaians’ own time) before they transition into the world of work.
