Time is here until the world ends

Time is here until the world ends

Time is here until the world ends...

It is a mistake to think time is going. Time is not going. Time is here until the world ends. It is you that is going. You don’t waste time. Time is infinite. You waste yourself. You are finite. It is you that grows old and die, time doesn’t. So make better use of it. And one of the worst things to do with time is comparing yourself to others. A cow eats grass and gets fat but if dog eats grass, it will die. Never compare yourself with others, run your race. What works for one person may be that which will kill you. Focus on the gifts and talents God gave you and don’t be envious of the blessings He gave others. If a rose smells better than tomatoes, It doesn’t mean the rose can make a better stew. Don’t try to compare yourself to others. You also have your own strength, look for it and build on it. All animals that exist, were in Noah’s ark. A snail is one of those animals. If God could wait long enough for snails to enter Noah’s ark; His door of grace won’t close till you reach your expected position in life. Never look down on yourself, keep looking up. Remember that Broken crayons still colour. Keep on pushing, you never can tell how close you are to your goal.

I was sent this powerful message via my WhatsApp chat. It was a forwarded text so I couldn’t place the source that have written it. I have chosen to use ‘Anonymous’ to credit the author and I hope the real author can find this so I can give whomever their deserved accolade.

This is such a powerful message. How we spend our time is crucial. Life’s projects and goals need extensive time management. I find myself tuning in weekly to Chris Croft’s Success Habits weekly and Dave Crenshaw’s Time Management weekly courses, both on Lynda.com/LinkedInlearning in order to master how to manage my time.

I do struggle with time especially when prioritizing on things essential and least essential. Numerous time I look back and think “what did I really do with my time today?” — ‘day’s gone, and I’ve accomplished nada!’ Time seem to go by so quickly, or so it seems.

Like the author has eluded to, it’s terrible practice comparing oneself to others. We each have our unique gifts and talents, and we run our individual race. “Comparison is the thief of joy” says Theodore Roosevelt.

Comparison leads to pain and misery. Making optimal usage of time in our hands leads to a much fulfilled life I would say.

Let’s make the most of our time. Come on now, we can all do this!

Focus your time on what is most important

Dear ZedTears. Focus your time on what is most important

It’s been over a month since I last designed a quote and posted on my site. My apologies to those who have always tuned in and to the numerous blogs I haven’t read during this period. My time have been occupied by certain events, although, I have been seldom active on Instagram if I must confess.

I still listen to talks, lectures and watch some insightful videos which is beneficial to acquiring new knowledge and eliciting growth. I thought I’d share a few lines below from a lecture Get enough time for the important things by Chris Croft, author of Success Habits on Lynda.com.

“Successful people are careful about how they use their time — because if you think about it, all you can put into an enterprise is your money and your time — as you become more successful your time becomes more valuable, not less. And the options for what to do with it usually become more complicated — So the key is to focus your time on what is most important.

We have to deal with the urgent stuff in order to keep everyone else happy. But finding time for the important things, that’s the key.

And anything that takes you towards your goals is important. If it doesn’t contribute to either enjoyment or achievement of a goal, then it’s not important.

— Successful people — They make time by being a little bit more ruthless than other people on the unimportant stuff.

I often question if I use my time wisely. Lectures like that of Chris Croft’s have been very helpful in keeping me focused and channeling my attention towards my goals and growth.
