Time, one of the most important features of life. We cannot make more of it and we are all seemingly trying to make the most of it. This is why Time is our most valuable asset.
So, what are you currently doing with your most valuable asset?
Are you spending 8 plus hours a day working for someone else in a job that is not fulfilling? Are you watching hours of TV a day? How are you spending your time?
If you are not spending it wisely now may I suggest that you start. Find your passion and spend as much time on it as possible. Read, learn, network, and then most importantly do. But in order to do much of this, we need someone else to provide their time as well as give up our own. This time is needed to make new connections or relationships which I believe are the gateways to growth. And sure, we can all sit and self educate or learn in a vacuum. But the time it takes to get the knowledge you seek can be drastically shortened, if you seek out an expert to coach you.
- What is an expert? Well I heard recently and really like the definition that an expert is someone who is a least one step ahead of you. They do not have to know it all, but as long as they know more than you do they can offer you more than you could offer yourself alone.
I am sure this is not something new, but I feel we need to constantly be aware of how we spend our time and work towards using it more effectively. It is easy to keep our heads down and remain in the current flow/pace, but if you want a more rewarding life you need to be willing to work for it. And of course, this takes time. If any one reading this ever witnesses me wasting mine please do me the favor and call attention to it. Get me back on track of using time vs time using me.
