The problem with waiting until tomorrow is that when it finally arrives, it is called today. Today is yesterday’s tomorrow. The question is what did we do with its opportunity? All too often we will waste tomorrow as we wasted yesterday, and as we are wasting today. All that could have been accomplished can easily elude us, despite our intentions, until we inevitably discover that the things that might have been have slipped from our embrace a single, unused day at a time.

Each of us must pause frequently to remind ourselves that the clock is ticking. The same clock that began to tick from the moment we drew our first breath will also someday cease.

Time is the great equalizer of all mankind. It has taken away the best and the worst of us without regard for either. Time offers opportunity but demands a sense of urgency.

When the game of life is finally over, there is no second chance to correct our errors. The clock that is ticking away the moments of our lives does not care about winners and losers. It does not care about who succeeds or who fails. It does not care about excuses, fairness or equality. The only essential issue is how we played the game.

Regardless of a person’s current age, there is a sense of urgency that should drive them into action now—this very moment. We should be constantly aware of the value of each and every moment of our lives—moments that seem so insignificant that their loss often goes unnoticed.

We still have all the time we need. We still have lots of chances, lots of opportunities, lots of years to show what we can do. For most of us, there will be a tomorrow, a next week, a next month, and a next year. But unless we develop a sense of urgency, those brief windows of time will be sadly wasted, as were the weeks and months and years before them. There isn’t an endless supply!

So, as you think of your dreams and goals of your future tomorrow, begin today to take those very important first steps to making them all come to life.

LOVE asked FRIENDSHIP:   ” Why do you exist when I already exist?

FRIENDSHIP smiled and said:   “To put a smile where you leave tears”

Relationships are not like Twitter or Facebook, you can’t log in and log out whenever you want.

Spring Break is a good time to log out (from technology) and spend time with your loved ones.

“Procrastination is the thief of time.”

Edward Young (1683-1765) British poet

A lot of people are afraid to lose their health.

In most cases, we can and will regain our health.

A lot of people are afraid to lose their friends.

We can always make new friends.

A lot of people are afraid to lose their money.

But we can always earn more money.

Very few people are conscious of the time they are wasting

Procrastination robs us of our time, life is short.

In which area of your life are you procrastinating?

Why ?

 

It seems to me that we are stubborn students of life.

Life seems to tell us: here is a situation you need to face for your own development, and yet, most of the time, we will try to avoid the lesson.

Why? Because it’s too damned hard! The curious thing about this is: the lesson we try to avoid seems to come back to us in many unexpected ways. Somehow, we can’t escape it.

I heard of some couple who had a baby with heart problems, the baby had to spend most of the first year of his life at the hospital. This situation had put a lot stress on the parents. Their mariage couldn’t resist. The parents divorced. The guy met another woman and she became pregnant. When the baby was born, the baby boy had a similar heart problem. It seems to me that this father couldn’t escape this particular situation.

When we focus on the moment and accept to face what we have to, it can be very difficult, but it is one of the best ways to grow as a human being.

It is probably one of the best ways to outgrow this unwanted situation or circumstance.

What does this post have to do with time or life management?

The sooner we understand this concept and put it in practice, the more time we will save to do other activities that we really enjoy.

“Time is at once the most valuable and the most perishable of all our possessions.”

John Randolph

I could go on and on…

How dare you being bored?

Yesterday, as I was walking to my destination I passed this park. As I went by I heard this male voice. A man was training his young dog. With a clear, strong, yet tender voice, he was teaching his dog to sit and the dog did. With his leash on they walked a few steps and repeated the process. He praised his dog and I could see that the dog was very happy.

The man was teaching the dog that it could be more. He taught the dog focus, discipline, and structure. What really struck me was that, he took the time. HE TOOK THE TIME. As I continued along my journey I reflected on what I had witnessed. Thinking how he took the time. He was there. He was getting the most out of that dog. How lucky that dog was.

 How often do we take time to teach our own children? We constantly hear, “I’m so busy, I feel like I’m always running, I’m stressed.” Our modern world is so inundated with marketing and advertising that has one goal and one goal only. That is to make a product so attractive that the consumer feels a need or desire to possess it in order to feel fulfilled or popular.

Personally, I’ve made a list of things to do with my children and I will do as much as possible today.

First things first!

Today is a good day to be with our children or with our parents!

Will you take the time?
