Your Time: Friend or Foe by Bonnie Ross-Parker

Imagine you have a bank acct that deposits $86,400 each morning. 

The account carries over no balance day to day.  You can’t keep a cash balance.  Each evening the bank cancels whatever part of the amount you had and failed to use during the day. 

What would you do?  Surely you’d draw out every dollar each day…RIGHT?

           We all have such a bank.  Its name is time.  Each morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds.  Each night it writes off, as lost, whatever time you failed to use wisely. 

It carries over no balance from one day to the next.  It allows no overdrafts.  You can’t borrow against yourself or use more time than allotted.  Each day the account starts fresh.  Each night any unused time is destroyed.  If you fail to use the day’s deposit, it’s your loss and you can’t appeal to get it back.

There is never any borrowing of time. 

You can’t take a loan out on your time or against someone else’s.  The time you have is the time you have.  There exists no exceptions.  Time management is under your control.  You decide how to spend your time.

The same is true for how you spend your money.  It’s always your choice.  It is never the case for us not to have enough time to do things.  It is all about what we do with our time and how we set our priorities.

Time is a special bank account.  We all want to use time better.  It’s important not to waste time by beating ourselves up over what we should do.  All of us individually decide how to use our daily allotment. 

If I was asked to share my ‘best advice’ as it relates to time, I’d say the #1 priority needs to be focus. Entrepreneurs know what they want to accomplish regarding both recruiting and creating sales.  Wisely using your time – face-to-face networking, training, follow-up – all are critical to one’s success. 

As we being a new year, perhaps, now is a good opportunity to revisit how you want to spend your day.  Whatever pleases you, brings you joy, and fulfills you from one hour to the next and as one day follows another will surely be a strong indicator that you are embracing the time you have. 

Plan your day. 

Keep track of how you actually spend your time.  Make wise choices.  Be pro-active.  Live your life without regret. 

We all are familiar with the saying, ‘take one day at a time’.  What are you willing to do to make each of those days personally and professionally successful? 

Remember, you are in the driver’s seat. Hold yourself accountable and you will reap the rewards for your determination and effort.
