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 Ultimate Productivity System -

Tired of complicated, long winded productivity systems that end up wasting your time - and leaving you more confused? I've been there.  Too often you've probably seen it yourself - you or someone close to you is trying to improve their life, get organized, and instead they get bogged down in some complicated system.

I've seen people start out with good intentions, but then get stuck spending more time maintaining their system than actually doing their tasks.

If there is one secret to really accomplishing what you desire, it is this:

Don’t Give Up! What Dreams Will Die With You? -

Imagine if you will being on your death bed - And standing around your bed - the ghosts of the ideas, the dreams, the abilities, the talents given to you by life.

And that you for whatever reason, you never acted on those ideas, you never pursued that dream, you never used those talents, we never saw your leadership, you never used your voice, you never wrote that book...

Setting Realistic Goals: 7 Keys To Set Goals You Can Actually Achieve -

"The victory of success is half won when one gains the habit of setting goals and achieving them.

Even the most tedious chore will become endurable as you parade through each day convinced that every task, no matter how menial or boring, brings you closer to fulfilling your dreams."
- Og Mandino

It has taken me a long time to learn how to effectively set realistic goals.  As I made mistakes and figured out what worked for me, I thought I was unusual - I thought everyone easily set goals except for me. Over the years as I've worked with and mentored people, however, I've learned my situation was not that unusual - in fact, it's far more common than we think.

We've all been told that we should set goals, and we assume that we can - but most of us have never been taught how to set goals effectively so they are realistic and achievable.

One of the most sobering goal setting statistics I learned in my research on setting New Year's resolutions was that 25% of resolutions were broken in the first week.  And the odds didn't get much better for the first couple months - among gym goers, 80% drop out within eight weeks.

I think a large part of this is due to not having realistic goals - without something to shoot towards, it's easy to get discouraged and give up.  It's hard enough to make changes in our life and accomplish what we desire - if your goal is unrealistic, or not well defined, then you're starting out with an immediate handicap.

So, what can you do to keep your goals on track? Here are seven keys for setting realistic goals.

Time Travel 101 – Techniques For Reliving The Past and Seeing The Future -

"The best way to predict the future is to create it. "
- Peter Drucker

I remember the first time I saw Back To The Future - one of my all time favorite movies about time travel. 

I've often wondered ....

  • What I would do if I could go back in time?
  • What would I see if I went forward in time?
  • Would I (eventually) make some mistake that would cost me my guitar playing skills forever - or would I go on to greatness?

With that, here are the ways I time travel into the past and forward to the future....always successfully returning to the present. 

You Are Not Limited By What You Did Yesterday -

"It is never too late to be what you might have been." - George Eliot

Your past, your life experiences - they have shaped you and turned you into the person you are today.

Hopefully through many positive experiences, but likely including some negative ones as well.

When you take those experiences and learn from them, or look back on fond memories your past is an asset. Your past supports your goals for the future.

On the other hand, if you are behold to past failures, or regrets, and don't let go of them - your past can be a liability.  Those mental, limiting beliefs can end up stopping you from achieving what you are fully capable of:  your ability may be there, but your belief may not be.
