I’ve had plans to write on this topic for some time, and while surfing the internet, I found one with all the same points already out there. I encourage you to check out this blog/article – it makes a lot of sense!
Zig Ziglar once said “you have never heard someone on their deathbed saying ‘I wish I had worked more hours'”.
We should all evaluate our lives and determine where we can give time back to ourselves and our families – and to the things that matter most in life. Work hard, give 110%, but look around you and determine where you are wasting time and focus on giving certain tasks and ownership away so that you get back the time you are losing every day.
As the article states, you can make more and more money. Even when you run out of money, you can start making it again. But once time is gone, it’s over. There is no regaining lost time.
Spend your time wisely – it’s an investment that does not return equally to you. The benefits of how you spend your time will be returned to you in family and friends who see the value of your time management. It will be returned to you in children who admire you for the efforts you make to spend valuable time with them instead of wasting it on things that have no value. It will be returned to you in finding the right career or opportunity that will allow you to maximize your time doing the things you love in your work and career, and giving you back time to do those things that are most important.
The clock is ticking….what are you doing today to change tomorrow?
