Why? Because you are wasting the absolutely most precious commodity that there is. Time. You can never make more of it, and you can never get it back. It is constantly fleeting, so much so, that even this moment is forever gone. Time is available to everyone, but very few make the best use of it. What does everyone else do?
They stay in their rut, and don’t do anything new. They are far too busy, and have no time to pursue what is important. They waste time in fantastically empty pursuits. They say their bored, and wish for something more, but do nothing to change. All the while, time is slipping by, never to return.
What about you? How are you doing with this? Oh, by the way. This isn’t just about better time management at work, though that is an important part of things. The pursuit of success and a better way of life isn’t the only place you waste time.
How is your family doing? Have you spent good time with your wife, husband, kids, parents? Do you have good friendships, even three people who really know you? How about yourself. Have you learned anything new in your life? That instrument you want to play? How about learning Italian for that big trip that you will take “someday”? Is your life just flying past, and are you just standing there watching it go by?
It doesn’t have to be this way any more. You can really do something about it. Also, this doesn’t have to be a sudden and overwhelming change that will wear you out. This is your life we are talking about. It can be better than it is right now. If you really want it to.
We get one dance in this life. When they are throwing dirt on you, will they be remembering how beautiful your dance was? What will you do with the time you have left?
The clock is ticking.
