Right Things

tim-graf-229428Where are you headed in your life?  What are you supposed to do?  What are you destined to achieve?  Knowing and actively pursuing your unique mission in life is the first right thing.  That thing you were meant to do to improve the world for the benefit of others.  To support your ability to do this well, the other right things include daily prayer (or meditation if you prefer), lifelong learning, taking specific action in line with your mission and keeping yourself healthy.  Or if you like easy to recall acronyms, PLAY (Pray, Learn, Act, Youthify…yes this is a made up word but it works:-))

How you invest your time will determine your success in life.  We all have the same amount of time in a day, yet some get so much more done.  Why?  Because they use their time wisely, on valuable activities in pursuit of their mission.  They plan their days and make sure their top priorities get scheduled and completed.  They don’t let distractions get in the way of accomplishment.  They don’t confuse activities with results.  Results are what matter in making the world a better place.

How do you spend your time?  Do you invest it in valuable activities that produce future results, or do you spend it on activities that keep you busy and produce immediate satisfaction but little lasting value.  It’s time to find out.  Start tracking your time today.  Download the tracker below.  Use it for a week and then set goals for how you want to invest your time going forward.  Just shining a light on how you are utilizing your time will likely motivate you to improve going forward., assuming you need to of course.
