Time Will Continue To Tick By
by Catherine Pulsifer
There isn't a day that goes by that we all suffer from the same loss, and that is the loss of time. Some people expect that time will stand still so that they don't have to worry about adapting to change.
Change, however, progresses with each passing minute, and those who think that they have plenty of time to alter their habits, change their behaviors, or learn new skills find themselves behind the proverbial eight ball. Time waits for no one.
Time is also one of the commodities that we can not buy back; we can not exchange anything we possess to trade for time that has been wasted or squandered.
For those who bemoan that they don't have the time to pursue new training, develop new skills, take steps to put in play an action that can help them move forward to capture a life long dream have no realization of how much time they waste.
For some, it is much easier to sit in front of the T.V. day in and day out rather than to put in the effort to use this time to create something that will pay off for them in the future. What is it about those people who seem to get more done, or participate in volunteer organizations, or contribute energy to helping others develop skills outside of their normal working hours? It is simply the ability to organize their available time in such a way that they can accomplish what they need to or want to.
You've probably heard the old adage that if you want to get something done ask a person who is busy. Why, because they know how to effectively use their time in the most efficient manner. Effective use of time, I should clarify, is different than the efficient use of time. How? Here's a simple answer. The person who watches T.V. is effectively using up time to engage in leisure activity, but the person who uses the same amount of time to study to advance their knowledge is using time efficiently. Both these people use the same amount of time, but what is accomplished is much different.
Time isn't your enemy - you are if you continue to squander your available time when you could be taking advantage of it to help you fulfill a dream.

Precious is time, fleeting, then gone,
Precious treasure freely given.
A moment found, one second's sway
To touch that teaching, healing place.
What have you done, I heard God say,
Precious is Time. . .
Fleeting . . .then gone!
