The most valuable thing we “own” is our time. Once we spend our time no amount of money can replace it so it’s truly the most valuable part of our life. Unfortunately, many people waste their time on activities that will not help them reach their goals- like passing the GED exam. Try this experiment: write a quick list of the main things you did yesterday, last week, last month or last year- where was most of your time spent? Did you spend a lot of time improving your health or education? How about spending a lot of quality time with your kids? How many hours did you study for the GED last month or last year?
The easiest thing we all do is make excuses on why we did not invest our time into actions that will really impact our life in a long term positive way. Don’t be caught in the trap of not paying attention or putting important things off because they will never get done. The most critical thing you can do to improve your life quickly is to get control of your time- this habit really is the secret to success.
