Here’s a great thought to start your day. Imagine you had a bank account that deposited $86,400 into your account each morning. The only catch is that at the end of the day, if there is money left in the account, you lose whatever part of the amount you failed to spend that day. What would you do? Draw out every dollar each day-right?
We all have such a bank. Its name is TIME. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Each night, it destroys whatever is left unused. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, it’s a loss you can’t get it back.
The time you have is the time you have and that is that. Time management is yours to decide how you spend the tim. Just as with money, you decide how you spend your time. We are all given the same amount each day. How we use it, determines not only how our day flows – but also how our future is molded. Use it wisely.
Something to Think About:
If you had to keep a journal of how you spent each minute of each day, and explain it to your coach for life, would you be making a lot of excuses or feeling good about the way you spent your time?
This week, live your life as though you were being held accountable for each moment. At the end of the day, ask yourself: Did you make a difference? Do you feel good about how you spent your day? Are you closer to your goals? Did you positively touch the lives of others? Did you make an impact on your own life?
Words of Wisdom
Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.Earl Nightingale
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.Steve Jobs
Lost time is never found again.Benjamin Franklin
Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.Bil Keane
