I was at yoga last night when I overheard two women having a conversation.
They were discussing how they would love to attend a second yoga class every week, but couldn’t find the time to fit it in. Wouldn’t it be great if there was another day in the week, they laughed. I laughed along with them, as it is something that I used to say time and time again, especially after I had children.
I was sure that if I just had a little more time, I would be more efficient, and achieve more of my dreams and goals.
Yet. it’s very easy to fall into the trap of thinking that if only we had a little more something, things would be easier. A little more time, we’d be more successful. A little more money, we’d be happier. A little more energy, we’d get up and go to the gym every morning.
But the hard fact of life is that there is no more time.
Each of us has the same amount, and no matter what we do or where we go, time carries on unaffected.
But like any other scarce and precious resource, there is a way to make the most of it; and if you handle it well, you will always have enough of it.
If you treat your time like the precious resource it is; value it, respect it and learn how to manage it, like magic, more will appear.
View your time as priceless and be choosy about who or what gets to claim a part of it. You will achieve more every day and live a happier and more successful life.
