At the end of a soccer, basketball, or football game, you’ll see the team with the lead doing something interesting: managing the clock. It means slowing things down, keeping possession of the ball for as long as possible, so the team chasing them has less time with a chance to catch up.
So what about your personal life?
Have you ever thought about managing the clock there? Unlike a sporting event, you don’t have a set time when it ends. You could have sixty years left, you could have sixty seconds. We just don’t know.
But we do know one thing…
Once hours and minutes are used, they can never be recaptured. They are gone forever. A person living a prosperous life manages the clock. They prepare and plan, setting aside time for work, recreation, sleep, meals, and even quiet time. They know that all are important, and this means consciously managing their time. And that’s all about choices.
So how you doing on that?
