Time… Is on my side…   Yes it is

Whether it was the Rolling Stones, the Chambers Brothers, or Chicago; time has always been a favorite topic for musicians, singers, poets and writers.

Time is also one of the major themes for us everyday people. 

 Just listen to the people you surround yourself with. Chances are, somebody will either be complaining about their lack of time to get things done, or they will use their lack of time as a reason why they can’t start something new.

 On the other hand, there are those unique individuals that seem to get so much done with their time. Sometimes we are amazed at how they are able to handle all the things they do and still find time for their family, friends and new adventures. How is it that they can make this happen?

 Do they have more time?

Here are some basic truths about time:

  • First, everybody has exactly the same amount of seconds, minutes and hours each day.
  • Second, there are no “time outs”, or instant replays in life.
  • Third, this is not a dress rehearsal!
  • Fourth, you can always make more money… but you can never make more time.

Time, like everything else, is all about the choices we make. Choose well.

Take back your life
Action steps…

  • “Recognize and embrace that each day is filled with 24 golden hours. Each hour has 60 diamond minutes in it. Each minute has 60 ruby seconds. When they are gone, they are lost forever.” (Dr. Denis Waitley)
  • Take ownership and control of your life… lack of direction not lack of time is the problem
  • Make time for “YOU”
  • Stop using time as an excuse for why you aren’t being responsible
  • Make time to exercise
  • Make time to meditate … or just sit and breathe
  • Make time for your family and friends
  • Make time for gratitude
  • Make time for kindness
  • Make time for Love
  • Learn time management skills… start with learning how to say “No”
  • Seize the moment … the day!!!

 Remember… Every day is a gift, and the quality of your life is your gift to yourself.
