Value Your Time

“Value your time.  Make the most of every moment to live the best life you can.”

– Sid Savara

We all have a limited number of days to achieve the things we want in our lives

Because of that, I believe in making every minute count.

I try to research the most important aspects of my life (personal productivity, health, personal relationships, mental health and happiness) and share that with you through my website.

The Biggest Mistake I Made In My Life -

There are many mistakes I have made in my life.  I hope that as I have learned from them, the lessons I've shared so far will help you avoid the pain and regret that follows from them. Today I want to share the biggest mistake I made with you.

The Importance Of Situational Understanding

Before I tell you, let me share with you how I got here.  Without understanding this, you may read it and not fully absorb how important it is. See, that's the thing about some of the most profound lessons in our lives: it takes more than just being told a lesson, to really understand the lesson. We have to learn them at just the right time, in just the right context, or it doesn't actually sink in and make any difference. Your mentors may tell you this lesson in passing, but without a proper frame of mind to accept it, you won't realize just how powerful it is and brush it off.

The SECOND Biggest Mistake...

And in fact, that may be the second biggest mistake I have ever made in my life:
Ignoring good advice, believing it didn't apply to me, because I was not yet ready to receive it - and wasting years of my life until I finally came around and understood how valuable that information was.
Time Famine: Because Time is What People Desire Even More Than Wealth -
Since 1972, Pew Research has conducted surveys on how happy people are. And you know what they've found?

Over time, half the people report feeling so-so, about a third are very happy, and about a fifth are not too happy.

The results are remarkably consistent across the decades.

The question is, if you're not happy - how can you get into that top group? And if you're already there - how can you stay there?

Well you can't buy your way into it.

The study suggests in most cases...

Money is Not What we Desire to Make us Happy

So what is it?

A successful career?  Family?  Children?

These are all 2-4 on the list.

No, there is one thing that we crave more than anything else.

I'm not discounting how important family and contributing meaningfully to society is.

Rather - this survey highlights a real problem that we haven't solved yet.
6 Bald Faced Time Management Lies We Tell Ourselves Every Day -
""Everything requires time. It is the only truly universal condition. All work takes place in time and uses up time. Yet most people take for granted this unique, irreplaceable, and necessary resource. Nothing else, perhaps, distinguishes effective executives as much as their tender loving care of time." - Peter F. Drucker
Time is the most valuable resource we have - and yet we often squander it by making small mistakes, and telling lies to ourselves. In my years mentoring and coaching, here are six of the biggest time management lies I've found.
How To Actively Take Control of Your Time and Your Life -

“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”
- William Shakespeare

I have been thinking lately about actively wasting versus passively wasting life.  

How often do you end a day, a meeting, or perhaps just glance up at the clock and wonder - "where did the time go?"

Or perhaps on your birthday or as you celebrate the new year you realize how much time in your life has passed.

None of us want to waste time - but if you don't active take control, time will leak away from you, in small increments throughout the day.  

And today, I'm going to show you six ways to actively take control - and own that time.

Focus On What Matters: A Life Lesson From an English Busker - It was summer in London - warm, clear skies and we had just finished an amazing day of sightseeing.  I was on a once-in-a-lifetime trip with some of my best friends.  It stayed bright until late in the day so even though it was already evening, the sky was lit up with color. As we entered the tube station surrounded by other tourists jabbering in different languages, I heard a busker strumming Oasis' Wonderwall on his  guitar down the hall and singing the first verse -
Today is gonna be the day That they're gonna throw it back to you By now you should've somehow Realized what you gotta do I don't believe that anybody Feels the way I do about you now - Oasis - Wonderwall from (What's the Story) Morning Glory
We tossed in a few coins and kept walking. After we passed and he finished the verse, he went silent for a few seconds. We were almost to our platform when I heard him start strumming again. I assumed he was going to continue the song - but he didn't. Instead, he began singing the opening verse again -
Today is gonna be the day That they're gonna throw it back to you...
