Robert Kiyosaki tells us that “The only difference between a rich person and poor person is how they use their time.” It’s truly amazing that we all seem to instinctively know that this comment is absolutely 100% true, yet most of us will do very little despite that insight, to put us on the other side of the Rich / Poor divide.
Stop and think about just how much time, energy, effort and thought you put into planning your vacation. Where you will stay, what you will do, what clothes you will wear, who you will see, etc., etc. etc.
Yet how many of us actually take the time to place the same meticulous attention into the details of precisely what we are planning in advance to be doing with or work day today, let alone our specific career goals for this week, this month, this year, this decade, so on and so on!
How much of your precious and unfortunately, “limited” time will end up getting totally wasted in pointless conversations about superficial subjects and cultural trivia? How much of your day will be lost aimlessly surfing the internet, updating your photo on Facebook, following celebrity gossip or sports talk on Twitter, or simply reading a bunch of mindlessly silly, mass mailed emails or funny or cute pictures of animals and people being videoed doing crazy things over on You-Tube?
Will you actually get to the gym before heading home after work, to keep your body and mind fit and running like a well tuned machine, in perfect sync or harmony? Or will you instead go meet some co-workers or friends at the local bar for a few drinks to just wind down and take the edge off. Exactly how does one keep his or her competitive edge, when everyday concludes with intentionally trying to take that edge off?
When you get home from the office, will you actually take the time to plan out and organize your itinerary for the next day, week, month, etc.? Will you be sure to take, or more importantly … “MAKE” the time for you to fully prepare for your upcoming appointments and presentations, study the numbers and the details involved in that important account that you need to sell … or that huge company project that you need to ensure is profitably successful?
Or will it be another night of just vegetating on the sofa in front of the more than 200 channels of mush to fill your mind, heart and soul with. The answers to these questions are ALL 100% totally up to YOU and YOU alone! What will YOU do?
