We talk about time management as though time is something we can manipulate. We use convenient phrases like “managing time,” “saving time,” and “making time.” In reality, it’s all about how we manage ourselves.
Since our time management is really about who we are and how we manage ourselves, it is a spiritual journey. It gets to the essence of our human experience, and is central in how we fulfill the promise of our potential.
Time is the most precious commodity we have; it’s the one thing we can’t ever get more of. We’re only ever just running out of it.
How do you spend yours?
When we turn the clocks back an hour every year, what do you do with that “extra” sixty minutes? I know, sleep. Almost everyone does. But what would you do with your one precious life if you had an extra hour every day?
Perhaps we need to be more aware of what we’re doing with our time.
When you take the time to figure out what you really want out of life, you can begin to evaluate whether the way you’re spending your time is moving you closer to or farther from your goals.
True story: A woman was sitting in a television studio audience talking to the host, a motivational speaker. “I would really love to go to medical school, but I’m fifty years old,” she said. “I’ll be fifty-four when I get out!”
The speaker replied, “You’ll be fifty-four anyway.”
The time will pass. Four years from now, would you rather have met your goal and made your dream come true or would you rather still be pining for what you don’t have?
