  • “Your time is limited so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” ~ Steve Jobs
  • So many live their life according to the opinion of others. In fact, very few actually live—they merely exist.
  • Unfortunately, many make excuses for what they do or don’t do—and one of the greatest excuses we hear is “I don’t have time.”
  • Actually, this is somewhat correct… you don’t have time—time has you. And time won’t compensate for hesitation or procrastination.
  • In the Toltec tradition it maintains, that “most never do what’s necessary to change until they’re backed into a corner with a dagger hanging over their head.” While this is graphic, it’s profoundly true.
  • When do most find the time to work out and change their diet? After their doctor tells them that they’re going to have a heart attack.
  • When do most work on their relationship? When one partner says I’ve had enough and I’m leaving.
  • When do most develop a relationship with God, their Creator? When their life turns upside down and they feel they need someone to save them.
  • You see, the reality is you always find the time to do what you value the most. No exception.
  • If you “can’t find the time” to do something, the truth is you don’t value what you’re considering doing. It has nothing to do with time.
  • Most will cruise along business as usual until they need to avoid pain. It’s a fact that we do more to avoid pain than to seek pleasure.
  • But it doesn’t have to be that way.
  • You can always tell what someone truly values by two indicators: 1. Where they spend their time and 2. Where they spend their money.
  • If someone’s calendar and bank statement is not full of something, you can bet they don’t value that something.
  • It’s not about time management—you have the time. It’s about values clarity and self-management.
  • So, the first question you must answer is: what do you truly value? All else flows from there.
