Time is slipping

Last Update: October 29, 2019

My great Wealthy Affiliate friends, time IS slipping away. I can't stop it or rewind it, or make more of it, but can I MANAGE it better?

I realize that I can do better. I haven't yet done ALL that I could do to achieve my goals.

It's time to GO ALL IN!

What I mean is, commit completely:
  1. Commit to investing even more of my time and effort in learning here every day
  2. Commit to putting the learning into action here every day
I'll be honest, I do spend time on some things every day that I could do more quickly, or I could just not do at all. So I'm working on that..

What do you think? Do you have any opportunities to better manage time and do more here?

I've been wondering if we really appreciate "time"? We say we always have SO little of it don't we - time just slips away so quickly.....

CONSIDER THIS:

Spend your whole day in bed. NOT sleeping. BUT, eyes closed, ears plugged, noone else around. And, just "counting each passing second all day". Think and do nothing else.

Let's assume 16 hours...have you ever counted slowly to 100? BORING!! Well how about to 57,600? I guarantee you, time would not "slip away so quickly!"

How do you spend your 57,600 seconds every day?

Do you schedule every second relative to your "goals, objectives, and the expected Return on Investment"? .

I do not. But, I CAN make some changes, and commit more of my time to "go all in!"

And, I'll share my new plan with someone who will check-in on my progress regularly so that it's more likely to happen.

Friends, we have so many "precious seconds" every day to invest in ourselves and our success.- but how many "second chances" will we get?

Are you thinking of small changes you can make today to invest more time here?

Share your thoughts - I'd love to hear them - let's commit together!

Have a wonderful new day - and "go all in"!

- John

HI Claudio - it's definitely something different for everyone but i loved Steve's suggestions below where he says he used "content creator". to set posting targets for each week. i'm just working mainly on dedicating and scheduling more time here and reducing the time I spend watching TV or some other distractions that aren't productive. Good luck with your efforts and let me know how you're doing ok?

All the best,
John

Thanks John for all your explanation. In my case, distraction often makes me lose tasks that I had programmed. It is a challenge for me.I will fight to improve.

Great post John. Yes, time is fleeting. I try to organize my day to do all the things I have to do at home, my semi-retirement job requires some time and I try to spend the rest a at WA.
Glad you’re setting your priorities.

I really need to do something! Thanks for the reminder. Busy-ness is not an excuse. I need to learn to manage my time.

I hear you Geraldine! I can see from what you share on your profile that you really are busy girl!! I too feel so busy all the time and I realize I create some of it myself with things that aren't absolutely necessary. I'm working on it!
Thank you SO much for contributing here!
Best wishes to you!
