Imagine you are on your deathbed. Imagine too, that you are conscious and in full control of your faculties, just waiting for your turn at death. At this moment, do you think you would want more money? Or more time?
Time is not money. Time is more valuable than money.
So let me ask you this. What is it that you do at work all day? Do you watch the clock and wish the day would go by faster? Are you wishing away your life? Are you spending countless hours in a horrible commute? For what? This is wasted time, time you could have used in a better way. Why must we wish our lives away? Why must we dream of being somewhere else?
I’m guessing the biggest cause of this is boredom. Now this is difficult to accept sometimes because we just may not know we are bored. We can be lulled into thinking we are fine by routine, but often times our hopes and dreams become largely just fantasy and then boredom sets in. You are not exactly where you would like to be are you? It is time to change all of that don’t you think?
Ok now you are ready for change right? So where to start? How do you tackle this mountain? The answer is surprisingly simple. Start with the dream, in this metaphor the dream is climbing the mountain and reaching the summit. Ok, identify your dream is then the first goal. Second step is to literally take a baby step in that direction. Want to lose weight? Cut out the sugar water drinks, and take 20 minute walks at lunch time. DONE. Next!
Want a new job/career? Spend some of that useless time at work, and work on finding you skills or knowledge. Stop wasting time, and do what it is you want to do. No one will do it for you.
