Isn’t it true that the more time spent on something the more it grows? If you spend more time at your job, you will become more successful. If you spend more time with your kids, your relationship will grow deeper. If you spend more time at the gym, your fitness goals will be met. But how much is too much? Time is something we can never get back. If we spend too much time on one thing, other things will get neglected. As much as I love to exercise my biggest challenge is managing my time so that time does’t go by and I regret not spending more time in other areas.
When you are managing your schedule, make sure that you are writing down what is important to you and then spending the proper time on each. It’s like tending to a garden. If you focus all your time and attention on the tomatoes that is all you will get in the end. In our world today with social media, world issues, and money driven lifestyles it is easy to get caught up in any and waste so much precious time. My focus for you (and myself) today is take a step outside your everyday and see where your time is going. What is important to you? Are you giving those priorities each proper attention to make a difference?
