The Real reason to get control of your time

The wife of one of my business acquaintances died last week.

I haven’t known him for a long time, but I have seen some of what he does in both his business life and personal life – especially concerning his wife.

I’ve seen him accomplish a lot business wise, but also a lot on the personal side, especially for his family. He doesn’t  “make” the time for personal matters, rather he organizes his time and life to ensure he pays sharp attention to both.

The fact of the matter is none of us know how much time we or the ones around us are given. While it is all well and good to say “no one goes to their deathbed saying I wished I worked more,” the reality is work, play, and family are all important parts of our lives, and each deserves whatever time we allocate for them. We can’t wish for or make more time.

The real reason to get control of your time is so that each aspect of your life is given your all without subtracting or compromising from any of the others, because we simply don’t know how much time we really have.

I love comments good and bad! Let me know what you think!
