USING TIME

planet-clock-3dHow much time do you think you have? Do you feel like you have all the time in the world?

What is the average life span in days for a human being who lives for 75 years?

It is 27,375 days.

Sound a bit short? Work it out for yourself. We all think we have more time, and tend to waste time as a result. But time in fact is very precious.

What is the best use of our time?

At any given moment, we can spend time on things that are BENEFICIAL, or things that are PLEASURABLE to us.

The things which are PLEASURABLE only give temporary satisfaction.

The things which are BENEFICIAL have lasting effects.

What do you choose?

Sometimes we don’t feel like doing those things which are beneficial to us. It is easier to do the things which are pleasurable. Which choice is going to make us successful in life?

People who choose the PLEASURABLE thing often feel like life has passed them by. They cruise along on a “comfort zone” getting nowhere fast. Then they realise, 20 years later, that they have not achieved their dreams and goals.

If you make the effort to always do the most important or productive thing every moment of your life, you will be propelled forward along the pathway to success. People who choose the BENEFICIAL thing are rewarded with things like good health, greater knowledge and skills, stronger relationships, increased wealth and greater self fulfilment.

So use your time wisely. Stop wasting time now! Drag your attention away from the television. Do something constructive like reading, studying, working on a hobby, going to the gym, completing a report for work or fixing something in the house.

If you want to be a winner, you must try to spend every second of your time doing the most important or productive (BENEFICIAL) this possible. Instead of asking yourself: “What can I do right now that will be most pleasureable to me?” Ask yourself “What can I do right now that will benefit me the most in the long run?”

Time is not your enemy. Your individual choices are. What will you choose to do in this moment????
