"This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Life truly is an endless balancing act, isn't it? Each and every day seems to offer us a new set of challenges, a new round of limitless opportunity; a new chance to make a fresh start. What more could we possibly ask for? However, each day also brings with it a seemingly endless list of things we need to get done, things we need to do.
There are the things we need to take care of in our business life, our personal life and our spiritual life as well. It always seems as though there are more things to do than we have time to do them. How can we possibly squeeze all of this and more into a 24 hour day? Plus we all need some free time as well. After all, doesn't all work and no play make Jack an unhappy camper?
"The key is in not spending time, but in investing it."
Stephen R. Covey
Nobody, even the most tenacious of workaholics, wants to work all of the time. Without having a little down time to recharge and reinvigorate ourselves, we will sooner or later burn ourselves out. Each and every one of us needs time to unwind and let go on occasion.
On the other side of the coin, wouldn't all play and no work make Jack a poor, unhappy camper? We still need to work to meet our monthly obligations, pay our bills and secure our financial future. Is there any possible way for us to reach a happy compromise? Yes, there is. It simply requires that we understand the dynamics of using our time wisely.
"Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much can be done if we are always doing."
Winners have conditioned themselves to squeeze more living out of each day by balancing their activities. These achievement oriented individuals recognize the need to efficiently allocate their time, spending a little time over here and a little time over there. They also understand how crucially important it is to set aside a little time for themselves too.
They consistently make the most of their time by "keeping their balance," budgeting their time efficiently and effectively. You too should put together a budget for yourself, carefully outlining how you will invest and allocate your most prized asset your time.
"Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time for that is the stuff life is made of."
Work time, play time, family time, down time each and every one of these areas are vitally important to your health, happiness and welfare. You never want to be guilty of neglecting any of these areas of your life.
By carefully apportioning your precious time among the things you need to do, you will soon start squeezing more living out of each day while having the time of your life in the process.
The Bottom Line: By budgeting your time efficiently, youll get more done in less time AND have more time left over to spend as you choose.
