procrastination is the thief of time

Procrastination stops when you act

There are probably a million quotes out there on procrastination. (Okay I exaggerate, but you get the picture). We all know what procrastination is, and why it is not the best if we want to lead productive and efficient lives.

I have chosen to write about it today, because I recently saw the quote in the post image (courtesy: quotefancy.com)

Do not act as if you had a thousand years to live.

Today is December 23, 2017. This means that another year is almost out. As I reflect on this year, I cannot but wonder if I made good use of every opportunity that came my way. Did I live this year like it was never going to end, and like I had all the time in the world?

Life is a journey quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life is a journey, not a destination

Life is a journey and I don’t think we ever really arrive. The journey continues for as long as we are still alive and breathing. We should keep growing, and never become stagnant.  As the saying goes, it’s not over, till it’s over.

They say life is a marathon and not a sprint. When training to run a marathon, you do it in increments. You start by running for a few miles, and then gradually increase the miles you run until you are able to run the long distance you are training for.

Time and Achievement Quote

Time Your Greatest Resource – Invest it Wisely

Time is all we have

We’ve all been told at one point or the other in our lives about the importance of budgeting. For the most part, when you hear budgeting, it’s usually regarding financial budgets and not time budgets.

The same idea holds for investments. We are all encouraged to not only budget and save money, but also to invest it wisely in mediums that will produce a high return on our investments.

Today, I want you to think in the same terms about your time. Time is really all we have, and it is the greatest resource we have available to us. It is also the one resource that we all get an equal amount of on a daily basis. No matter how hard you try, you just can’t get more of it.

Focus On Your Personal Growth

There is a saying that if you are not growing, then you are dying. There is no in between. Either there is growth in one or more areas of your life or those areas wither.

Think about it, one of the ways doctors evaluate whether a newborn is thriving or not is by monitoring their growth. While physical growth stops at some point in our lives, other forms of growth should not.

What does growth mean to you?
