It’s Time To Manage Your Time.

It’s Time To Manage Your Time.

Have you heard people saying, “Life is Short?”

Life is not short.

It may seem so but truth be told, we do waste a lot of our time.

We also let the remaining time pass too quickly by not being mindful of it.

There are also many who choose to squander time in meaningless pursuits.

Some go from one pursuit to another.

They never stick to any one of them long enough to find and fulfill a worthwhile purpose and fulfillment.

There are some who float through time waiting for significance to grab them.

They hope for a sense of purpose to carry them on the journey of life.

There are also some who live to help fulfill another person’s dream.

They do it sometimes in exchange for the security of a job and money.

At the end of life, they may calculate their years of living with time spent on careless living, mindless tasks, unhealthy relationships, and meaningless pleasures.

Whatever time that is leftover can be further subtracted by time spent on dealing with illnesses that may be self-inflicted.

These illnesses can result from time spent on negative emotions and unhealthy living.

Looking at the equal amount of time given to all of us, how much time is spent on pursuing worthwhile dreams and goals?

How much time is spent on personal development, especially on fostering spiritual maturity and value-adding to others?

The bottom line is that life fleeted away while they were living life.

Then, they wonder where has time gone to.

It is tragic that many live as if they will live forever.

They are not mindful about how time is wasted – moment by moment, and day by day.

They somehow think that the Great Reaper will always give them a miss throughout their lives.

They plan to do many things but only at a later date.

Postpone essential action to another day when they need to do it right now.

They waited till the time has gone past and soon, they’ll run out of time.

They may end up saying some of the most tragic words that can come from pen, mouth or keyboard are “If only I had…”

The good news is, life is long enough.

There are more than enough time to fulfill the greatest of dreams.

The best of life begins from right now.

Managing time effectively is your birthright.
