“Let today be a day to spend time alone in nature, if possible. Take a walk as far from the hustle and bustle as you can. Take off your shoes and walk barefoot in the grass to reconnect with nature.”

Did you ever add up the time you spend browsing the net, going on Facebook, Youtube and Linkedin?

According to recent surveys, more than 500 million people spend 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook.  700 billion minutes…

The Internet can save us a lot of time when we search for something useful for our job or for school. We can also pay our bills, do our banking online and do a lot of other useful tasks. There are lots of benefits of using the web but we must discipline ourselves to use our time wisely. It is tempting to go on the Internet and spend an hour to look at random stuff.  We must check our habits and set boundaries to avoid wasting precious time.

We all have 168 hours every week. How many of these hours do you invest or waste on the Web?

Donna Karan had planned to be a stay-at-home mom, but when her boss and mentor, Anne Klein, passed away, Donna stepped up and created a line just days after her daughter was born. And guess what?   It has been a huge success…

“You’ve gotta to live in the moment, be prepared for anything at any time in your life”

  • Donna Karan

    Life is similar to lying in bed; it’s easier to hit snooze and delay what you must do.

    Whenever you get that hit-the-snooze feeling, try do go against your natural response, try to get out of your comfort zone. Sometimes it is as hard to  do what we must do as it is to get out of bed in the morning.

    No more delay. No more hesitation. Stand up and start your life.

    Are you ready?

    “Life is not a spectator sport. If you’re going to spend your whole life in the grandstand just watching what goes on, … you’re wasting your life.”

    Do you prefer to watch “So You Think You Can Dance” or take dancing lessons with your partner?

    Do you prefer to watch ” Property Virgins” or to invest your time taking care of  your own property?

    Do you prefer to watch a “NHL game” or to go play hockey with your friends?

    Do you prefer to live your life or watch other people live their own?

    Personally I prefer the acting part…because life is in the living.

    What do you prefer?

    “To go against the dominant thinking of your friends, of most of the people you see every day, is perhaps the most difficult act of heroism you can perform.”

    Theodore H. White

     This is risky business! But when we are convinced that our ideas are the right ones, we must fight for them. Just think of Galileo, Martin Luther, Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King…

    “If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”

    “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”

    When we jugde people, we waste our time and we hurt other people’s feelings. I have never seen any good coming out of it when I found myself guilty of judging others. I have never seen any good when I witness others judging others.

    So my question to you is; why do we keep falling in this trap?
