Most people wish they had more time. At least that’s what they say. But often they waste huge amounts of time on activities that do not move them toward their life’s vision and goals. Certainly, we all need rest, recreation, and fun. Our goals should in fact reflect that. But much time is simply squandered with little value.
Since creating more time is impossible, the best we can do is use the time that we do have more productively. And there’s a really easy way to discover an entire hour in every ten-hour period.
If a person saves 30 seconds every five minutes, that adds up to one hour every ten hours. Stated another way, if we can eliminate 30 seconds of wasted time every five minutes, we’ll accomplish in nine hours what used to take us ten.
Start opening your eyes and mind to the things you might do that waste a few seconds here and there.
This essay could be made a bit longer, but I’m going to end it here. That means you’re several seconds ahead right now!
