AIN'T GOT TIME FOR THAT!!
Seems like we are all too busy. To busy to work more? To busy to play more? To busy to learn more, be more, do more?
Ironically, we always seem to find time for the unproductive or counterproductive things in life. We can watch a sporting event for 3-4 hours. We can stare into space (watch television) or play video games for extended periods as well. But when it comes to “bettering ourselves” suddenly time slips away mysteriously and we cannot determine where it went. Baffling really.
Here is what I find true in my own failed disciplines. Time cannot be managed. How we use it must be managed. The key words for managing how we allocate time are PRIORITIES AND VALUES.
The truth is, we all MAKE time for what really matters to us. As Zig Ziglar noted in “Over The Top” we seem to get more work, chores and errands done the day before vacation than at any other time in our lives.” That is because vacation is a priority and we want to enjoy it to the fullest without the stress of things left undone. We value the time we will spend on vacation with friends and family as we hope to unwind so we pull out all the stops to insure it is not interfered with.
If you are a leader, and you have experienced this phenomenon you will notice how powerful it is as a motivator. You will also notice highly successful and influential leaders live as if EVERYDAY is the day before vacation.
Sure, we all get rushed and pressed and stressed. We all find interruption upon interruption and then even those get interrupted. We also experience delays, details and decisions which alter the course to success.
I challenge you to make it a point of determining your priorities and values so you can wisely manage how you use your time. You will never get it back.

Day after day I meet people who are struggling just to make ends meet. They are adrift in this vast sea of humanity holding on to their job, their family, their home, and their car with all they've got. They see their life experiences and education as the last hope to find their purpose and identity. They gather, fill and stuff all the money they can into every opportune investment. Yet they are empty, frustrated, angry and just plain fed up.
We have all experienced that moment; when we find yourself stuck in traffic, yelling at random strangers to do what they wish they could... but can't... GO!
The idea that life can be better than it is today is like the flame of a candle fighting for all its worth to stand against the tempest.
We all want a better life.
Even when life is good, we want more.
That idea, that flame, is the hope that lives in the hearts and minds of all of us. Should that flame be extinguished, hope itself may well go with it. It is the rut of hopelessness that traps many would be shining stars and buries that glow from the sight of the world. It is the rut of hopelessness that extinguishes that flame.
Lives that would have been a beacon to the wandering are lost at sea themselves. Inspirations of success that would have been the voices crying out to all who suffer are hidden away in their own stale lives, they cannot share who they are or what the world needs from them.
It is my passion to help you find your purpose. I want to see you become successful, but more than that to be free!
Without vision people perish.
Without vision, we seem to be lost, mind numb robots following the herd into the abyss that is everyday life. We do not live intentionally without a vision for our future. We do not live passionately without a vision for our future. We do not live productively without a vision for our future. We certainly cannot lead without a vision for our future and a vision for the future of those we lead.
This audio course will inspire and instruct you to create a vision which will become a significant driving force in your life.
