Last post we talked about the choices we make. And almost nothing will impact your quality of life more than the choices you make about how you spend your time.
Most people are pretty unfulfilled. Which seems ironic, because they usually make instant gratification decisions. They want the hot fudge sundae, they want to watch TV all night, and they want to spend money they haven’t made yet. They would rather avoid someone than tell them the truth. Put off things they should do now. They veg out on vapid entertainment, rather than do any self-development.
Other people make difficult choices. Do unpleasant things early to get them out of the way. Deprive themselves of certain things now, so they can appreciate them later. They make sacrifices now, and ultimately have a better lifestyle and more fulfillment.
My mantra when I started my journey to success was a simple one, but it served me well:
“I will do today what others will not do, so tomorrow I can do what others can not do.”
So what kind of choices are you making on how you spend your time?
