How Spending Your Time Well Will Change Your Life

Sit down. Think back over the last few years, or months. When can you remember being productive about something you’re doing? Try to think. Is your life going to move forward as a result of what you’re presently doing?

My last and probably more important question is: “what are you doing?” The answer to this question is usually an unequivocal “I’m busy.”

It’s easy for many people today to say they have a busy life, but they never achieve anything, because they are involved in pointless distractions, meaningless pastimes, worthless social media tasks, and purposeless pursuits.
For example in my case when I tell people I’m busy, I mean I spend hours at my desk researching, and developing material for new training programs and future books, returning business phone calls, or emails, following up on clients or sending out a sales letter. Other times I am teaching in schools, and studying to improve the positive outlook I display in my role as a person, leader, coach, consultant, and trainer.

What are you doing with your time, talents, gifts, opportunities, and resources? No one’s time here on earth is forever. Spend your time doing those things that will make the powerful and positive changes that will transform your life, and that of your loved ones.

I know it’s not easy to keep focused during hard times, but you don’t have a choice, because the secret of your success is embedded in the regularity of spending your time purposefully. So, do more than being active, spend your time productively.
