The newsletter is now going out at 5 am instead of 6 am. We have a lot of early birds and they get to read the letter early. It's a great way to start the day.

How do you spend your time? How do you invest your time? How do you waste your time? Have you ever noticed that what needs to get done gets done. Have you noticed that when an emergency happens you always have time for it?

Me, I am spending less time on the boat. The time is taken by other things such as the opportunity to speak to a wonderful group in Boston last Saturday. A number of them are new subscribers, so welcome!. Somehow, someway, we go with the flow of time. The trick is to use it to advantage.

I am not a fan of emails telling me to click and watch a video. Often I do not want to invest the time. Today, I am asking you to do so. This is about a woman who will turn 107 this month. She is the oldest survivor of the Holocaust. Her message to us all is powerful. It is no wonder she is still alive at 107 to teach us. If we all could only be more like her. You will be glad you saw it. CLICK HERE

This is the last week you can sign up for the ONE SALE lecture. Don't miss out. Sign up today.

I was asked why one should sign up for the ONE SALE teleseminar. Well, here we go:
Do you need to know the most important sale you'll ever make?
Do you know what moves you forward?
Do you know what holds you back?
Do you want to be more effective?

If so, I'd suggest you sign up for the teleseminar. I'd urge you to sign up for it. But, that's me. What about you?


PS: Why is the ONE SALE important to You?

Inspiring Quotations

" What you are aware of you are in control of; what 
you are not aware of is in control of you."

-Anthony deMello

"Things may come to those who wait.. 
but only things left by those who hustle.

— Abraham Lincoln

"Be quick, but don't hurry."

-John Wooden

"Time is limited, so I better wake up every morning fresh and know that I have just one chance to live this particular day right, and to string my days together into a life of action and purpose. "

-Lance Armstrong

"Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential."

-Winston Churchill

I said, "I don't even have or need a watch."

I eat when I am hungry, sleep when I am tired, learn and play at other times. I do all this without a watch. I use my time as I feel appropriate. Sure, sometimes others disagree, but that is when I play 'terrible twos'. often, I win.

Pop asked me to watch the video of the woman 107. Well, that's the way kids live life. No wonder Pop tells you to be a kid. Kids know, kids understand, kids know best how to live. We have to stop listening to adults! If you use a watch and are over the age of 5 you should read the time article and pay attention. You need it. Someday I will, also. Maybe.

Is time a stream we fish in?

Is time our friend, our enemy, or an earthly illusion?

Time cannot be managed. Time goes by slowly when we are doing something we dislike, and it races when we are doing something we enjoy. Time passes at different speeds for us at different times.

Some people refer to time shifting. Some people report experiences of arriving at a destination in less time than it takes to get there. Time, at times, is a mystery to us.

Lately, at least for me, time seems to be flying. The seasons change so fast, the week disappears quickly. Time passing quickly is also an effect of being busy and occupied.

We can’t manage time. It exists and continues with or without us. Time marches on. We can manage ourselves. We can schedule what we do and when. We can make a list and follow the list.

Time is our greatest asset and we all have the same amount each day. We are all equal when it comes to time. The difference is in how we use our time.

If you want a better handle on your time make a chart of each waking hour divided in four. Then, every 15 minutes record what you are doing or did. For most of us we will be surprised at how much time we did not appear to be doing much. The chart will help us to see where we do have productive time we are not using.

If we don’t have a schedule or a plan as to what we want to accomplish, we automatically drift with the time and whatever is in our vision at the moment. We might spend an extra five or fifteen minutes on the telephone. We might linger over casual conversation at the water cooler. Work expands to fill the time available. It is the same for all of us.

You will find your productivity increased if you have a plan, have a schedule, and you focus on and follow it. Not only will you get more done and accomplished, you will feel better about yourself.

We feel time pressure when we have things to do we have not done. Looking at a long list of things is discouraging. Scheduling them for different days, in bite size segments, and then doing them when scheduled, makes us feel great. We can use time as our friends to get the list done. We’ll feel great.

Time helps us to plan, to schedule, and to accomplish. Rather than watch time pass us by, let’s use it to accomplish those things we need to do and want to do.

Time is not a problem, and the problem is not a lack of time. It’s all in our use of time. Use time as a tool to help you schedule and organize. Time is your friend. It’s time. The time is NOW.
