I find it very easy to do the wrong things with no thought, question or concern and yet the right things seems like the hardest part of life to some.
Time is the key to life. I was once told that you are basically living everyday to die. This sounded all kinds of freakish, but when you put it into perspective, I get it! From the time you were born, you’re ready to die. Every step in life is gearing you towards just that. Time is the essence of life, and it makes your world go round. Think about how much time you do or don’t have according to how you spend your days….
I used to probably be one of the smartest procrastinators I know. (contravening to the statement, it is possible to be both) I used to pride about being able to succeed at everything I attempted simply because if it appeared to show some sort of success, then in my mind, I’ve conquered defeat. No matter how much I love being the person who doesn’t study to get “good” results, I’ve encountered that smarter people who apply skills get “great” results. (at least in this case)
…anyone can be good, but a PROFESSIONAL is going to sharpen skills in life to be better than just average.
I had to take my own advice. I purchased calendars, planners, and anything leadership or organization oriented to keep me under wraps with trying to enhance my entrepreneurial mindset.(Which has worked surprisingly well thusfar.) Perhaps if I had taken TIME, the outcome of success might have proven to be different.
Time also correlates with money. This is something we need to survive (I don’t care what anybody says, in this day in age it’s the one powerful thing that separates “haves” and “have nots” somehow in our society.) When you PLAN to do things with your TIME, you will see the difference in how things come together. Work diligently, your paycheck will reflect that.
Overall, the key word in all of this is PLAN. Plan to be the success you desire to be in life.
