Lack of time…are you kidding me?

“Goal setting clearly and consistently facilitates performance however many fail to utilize goal setting strategies due to a perceived lack of time.” A lack of time…are you kidding me? H. Jackson Brown Jr. said it best,“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.”

Most people feel like they don’t have enough time because they fail to plan out there day or waste time and energy on things that are not essential to the mission. Instead of being reactive to the business of each day, go on the offensive and attack the day with a game plan! What’s your dream? Write it down. What are short-term goals that will help you get there. Write them down. What are things you must do each day to accomplish your short term goals? Write them down and then attack them one by one. Little things add up.

It might not happen right now, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Sacrifices will be required and it won’t be easy but it will be worth it in the end. Today, put on a full court-press. Go to bed tonight with the satisfaction of knowing you did everything in your power to get better and win the day. Remember time is one thing we can never get back. The time is now to stop making excuses and start getting after it!
