It’s already June 30 th!

If you really want to achieve most of your goals and become what you are capable of becoming, you have to get your time under control.

A sense of control over your time should reduce your stress level and increase your overall well-being.

One of the first things you must do is to clarify your priorities.

It is impossible to do it all.

I know because I tried and I failed miserably.

In the past, I planned to accomplish too many goals and objectives at the same time only to become frustrated.

Recently, I focus on 3 or 4 important goals only, and I do everything I can to follow through.

To choose or not to choose!  This is today’s question.

Will you be a victim of the over-abundance of possibilities or will you choose to focus on what is most important for YOU?

Do you have the ability to set clear goals for yourself ?

Have you develop the ability to get yourself organized and work on your most critical tasks, every minute of every day?

Do you have a way or a system to measure it?

Your choices and decisions have combined to create your entire life to this moment.

To change or improve your life in any way, you have to make new choices and new decisions that are more in alignment with who you really are and what you really want.

Do you know who you are?

Do you know what you want?

Have you CHOSEN what you really care about?

Have you written it down?

Do you review it DAILY?

Begin with a list.

These lists drive my wife crazy…because she knows that I will stop at nothing to get them done.

And sometimes, there is a price to pay…

The fact is that we can’t manage time; we can only manage ourselves.

That is why time management requires self-discipline and self-control.

Time management requires that you make the best choices and decisions necessary to enhance the quality of your life and work.

Then you follow through with your decisions.

Make a list of everything you would like to be, do, or have in the months and years ahead.

Analyze your list and select those items that can have the greatest possible consequences in your life.


Hey I know it’s not very sexy, but guess what, IT WORKS !!!

“It is wonderful what you can do when you have to”

C.S. Lewis


Why are we so productive the day before we leave on holidays? We want to make sure everything is done before we go.

This is evidence that we waste time on other days. This is evidence that we procrastinate a lot.

Whatever you would like to do or know that you must do, act now, act today!

Will you try to act on 1 or 2 things this week end ?


The time for action is NOW.

It’s never too late to do something.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery


Where are we?


What time is it?


Life comes down to a few moments.

This is one of them.


Have a great day!

“Nothing is too difficult, you only need to know how”

Yiddish proverb


When I was about 14 years old, an older person once told me that most of us learn at least one thing every day.

Being 14 and somewhat skeptical, it took me a while to fully grasp what he said.

I realized later that it was absolutely true. In fact, we can learn much more than one thing every day, we can learn and re-learn many things every single day.

There are two conditions;

The first one is:  we must have the right attitude towards change and learning.

The second one is: we must pay attention.

Yes but it takes so much time to learn…I hear some of you say.

And my answer is: What about the time we waste by refusing to learn?

I wonder which one is more costly.

You CAN do anything you put your mind to.
The phrase I CAN’T is what limits you from doing everything you want to do.

What will you learn today?


In the end, it’s not the years in your life…

It’s the life in your years that counts !

Abraham Lincoln

We live, we learn.

Stay away from know-it-all teachers with pre-fabricated answers.

The best kind of learning happens in real life with real problems and real people.

And when it hurts, we learn faster.

It even saves time, sometimes…

We learn by doing.

We fail. We fall.

It costs!

We ask insightful questions.

We try again, again and again.

We get up. We act. We succeed.

We live. We learn.

Am I becoming  healthier?

Am I becoming wiser?

Am I becoming smarter?

Am I becoming more likable?

Am I becoming more self-reliant?

Am I becoming wealthier?

These are little annoying questions to check out the value of your daily activities. ( Sorry)

Have a great day!

“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.”

George Washington Carver
