Everyone seems to always be busy. The universal saying is “There never seems to be enough time in the day.” Well, believe it or not twenty-four hours is a very long time. If someone asked you to be still for twenty-four hours then your first response would probably be this: “That’s too long!” How about twenty-four hours of driving, walking, running, standing, sitting or lying in bed? Twenty-four hours doesn’t seem too short now, does it?
Twenty-four hours is the same amount of time in everyone’s day. The difference is what you choose to do with your twenty-four hours. Do you whittle it away by wasting your time on things that really don’t matter? Or do you use each hour of every day purposefully for doing the things that are important in your life?
So the next time you start your day, think about all of the things that can be accomplished in twenty-four hours. When it really comes down to it, how much time per day do you really need to do the things that really matter?
WOYN Tip: When we prioritize the things that matter, we can make the time for what is really important. The other stuff can be put off until the next twenty-four hours.
