The concept of time is somewhat of a double-edged sword. On one hand, time is simply a unit of measure. There are twenty-four hours in a day, no more, no less. And when we look at time in terms of meaningful moments it’s easy to focus on what’s most important and ensure that we live without regret. We all realize we only have a finite amount of time to achieve all that we dream about, yet we rarely take a moment to reflect on how to make the most use of this precious time. This week, take a few moments of reflection and ask yourself what you really want to accomplish that’s near and dear to your heart. Then commit to finding 1-2 hours each day to work on your dreams.
- Based on my age today, what can I accomplish if I spend 1-2 hours each day to work on what really matters?
- How can find 1-2 hours each day to work on dreams yet unfulfilled?
Once you start, you’ll find it’s amazingly easy to find the few hours every day. Make a “Stop Doing…” list to make more time to focus on the right priorities. Then create a “Start Doing…” list that will inspire you to take action. With a focused list you can look forward to doing the work you most need to do. You may even decide that you want to spend more time each day working on what really matters. That’s when you’ll know that you are focused on the right things.
