“Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.” – Carl Sandburg
There is one person that controls your life. This person controls what you eat, when you wake-up, whether you exercise or not, whether you choose to eat healthy or give in to fast food, how often you check Facebook, how much TV you view and what you do with your day. That divine ruler is YOU– no one else.
Do you handle time as money? Can you tell me what your time must be worth per hour to achieve your income goal? The driving question that I always ask myself is: Will this use of my time move me significantly closer to my important goals?
Time is the asset you own outright and have total control over. I don’t really need to follow you around and observe how you use your time to gauge how you’re doing in business. All I need do is have a peek at your diary, its appointments and plans and I will know whether you are serious about your job and life. The diary never lies. I always find that the sales people with a mostly empty diary always fail to meet their targets.
“Time slips. Days pass. Years fade. Life ends. And what we came to do on earth must be done while there is time!” – Milan Jed
