Our time is important to us, and for those of us who want to work on ourselves, create a better life for our families, help others, etc we have more and more items on our to do list everyday. Let?s face it, no matter how good you are, you will never finish. There is always something new to add to the list. But time is the one commodity that we really can?t create any more of, sure we can be as healthy as we can so that we live longer. Now if good health meant living to 90 rather than 80 do you want to be using the extra 10 years at 80,or do you want to have 10 years worth of free time to do what you love, to spend with your family, to travel the world, NOW?
It?s important to remember that in life all you have is now. Even if you have a great future ahead, you’re always on the journey. Death is the only arrival. So you have to make sure that you are enjoying your time and spending it well right now. You can do this by getting the things you have to do done more quickly so that you free up more of your time.
It’s very easy to get more done more quickly. All it takes is Focus. Focus was something I used to struggle with. We are conditioned in the modern world to be multi-taskers. If you try to divide yourself and spread your attention to too many things they will all suffer. Focusing on one thing at a time means you get it done faster AND you do a better job. Remember, as I learned from Brian Tracy: What you focus on grows.
