Are You Wasting Time Or Investing Time?

Today is time-change Sunday. Yeah, I here that “ugghh” out there. We lose an hour’s sleep today.
Since this is time-change day, let’s think about how we use our time. At times people will say, “I just don’t have enough time!” Or, “there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day.”
Well, I disagree with both statements. God has given us enough hours, we just need to manage them better. Bobby Bowden, former Head Coach of the Florida State Seminoles once said, “Everyone has the same amount of time. It’s a matter of how we use it.”
So, how are you using your time? Think about that… where does your time go? How much of your time is spent doing things that is literally, a waste of time. When we come to the end of our lives and look back, will we think, “I wish I hadn’t spent so much time doing that.”
Recently, in one of our sales meetings, our Sales Manager told us, “Everyone needs to be focused on selling cars and getting better. If you are doing anything that doesn’t fall in one of those two categories, you probably don’t need to be doing it.” He is right.
So what about you… how are you spending your time? Vince Lombardi is the legendary Head Coach of the Green Bay Packers. On several occasions he told his team that their priorities should be: God, Family and the Green Bay Packers. That’s a good list for us; God, family and our work.
So, today, how are you using your time? Are you wasting time or investing time? Make sure you are using your time wisely. We only live one time. Use it wisely.
