One of the most important elements for success is the mastery of time. If you master your time, you will WIN your future. There is no greater liberation than owning your time, and no great success has been achieved without knowing that time is scarce even in its limitless form. But managing time does not mean spending lesser time on something; it’s simply knowing what to spend time on, to advance your mission. Do not be like the lifeless feather which when tossed into the stream wanders wherever the stream current moves it. Be like the dragonfly which even though enjoying the mild current defines its path.
Have a process and see how that process aligns with your goals in life. Students, look carefully, the bests in your classes are not necessarily the smartest but those smart enough to manage their clocks. Because the world is bounded by time, defined within 24 hours a day, companies and schools look for those “bests” as they have overcome by managing time. The best companies, the best universities, and the best leaders want them because if they continue on those paths, they will add values.
I wish you a great purposeful weekend. My teams are playing this weekend – Baltimore Ravens has to win (Steelers) in the NFL (U.S football, not soccer!) while Sevilla has to help Barcelona FC make points in La Liga. We need your support.
