How Do You Use Your 24 Hours In Your Day?

All human beings have something in common. Yes, we’re all human beings, and regardless of what we each look like, we all have organs within us, we bleed when we’re cut, and we all have moms and dads, and we live on this place called earth. But there’s also something else we have in common. Jeff Bezos, with his 200 billion dollars and the homeless person who’s walking by both have something in common. That is the fact that we all have 24 hours in a day.

Some people say they don’t have time. Some people say they wish they had more time. The reality is that we all have the same 24 hours in a day. We do have time. Some of the highest performing CEOs – those that are running the multibillion dollar corporations – did you know they have 7-10 minute meetings so they can fill in 30 meetings in a day? They can say I don’t have time because I have a meeting scheduled, but no, they create time. If you don’t create a budget for your time and you don’t allocate time for certain things. The person who says I don’t have time to work out is not someone who’s not motivated, it’s someone that doesn’t budget themselves.

Most people major in minor things.

Most people spend the majority of their time engaging in things that don’t mean anything to them 6 months from now, or a year from now. If you’re stressed out about something that a year from now doesn’t mean anything it is best that you just let it go. If it’s not going to mean anything a week from now, a month from now, why hold on to it?

Create A Time Budget

We all know what a financial budget is. You sit down and look at all the costs and the money coming in and you try to budget it. You can do the same thing with your time too. The best time to budget your time is the night before. Take a look at your day ahead, and the week ahead, and find pockets of time to do the different things you want to accomplish.

“Everything in life is use it or lose it.” -Tony Dipp

If you grab your arm and tie it down to your body and don’t use it for an extended period of time, say a few weeks, without any type of movement and then open it up your arm is unable to do anything. If you don’t use your physical body parts, you can lose them. If you don’t use your mind, you lose it. In the same way, if you don’t use your time you absolutely lose it.

Therefore, proper use of time is one of the pillars of success in recovery.

Today is going to be the best day of your life.
