Does Sean Hayes have the secret to life?

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Realty West CalBRE #01458572

Contact Jim Frimmer for all your San Diego real estate needsIn the overall scheme of the things, i.e., the timeline of the universe, each of us is here on Earth for just a few seconds.

When I think of it like that, I'm kind of encouraged to make the most of those few universal seconds.

Is the sun setting on your life?I was reading an article about Sean Hayes, the actor who played Jack McFarland on Will & Grace. Since Will & Grace ended in 2006, Hayes has been in movies (The Bucket List), television (Martin and Lewis), formed his own productoin company which produces the new sitcom, Hot in Cleveland, starring Betty White, and stars in a revamp of Promises, Promises, the Burt Bacharach/Hal David musical from 40 years ago.

What really caught my attention in the article is how he manages to do everything he's doing. His answer?

Time management. My philosophy is that we're only here for five minutes. So get accomplished what you want to get accomplished in your life. And in the intervals, do what you can to help other people.

Perhaps prophetic, or perhaps so sensible that many of us forget to get accomplished what we want to accomplish and to help others.

Is that me? Sometimes.

Is it you?

Five minutes at a time really doesn't leave any room for fear or procrastination. I think Sean's got it right.

Time management is something we have always wanted to accomplish. We mainly run helter skelter, hitting on the priorities first, while eyeing what else needs done. Five minutes? That would be extremely hard for us.

Everyone can improve in the area of time management. We all get the same 24/7. It is interesting how well some do with it.

Jim - Great philosophy.  As I age I become even more aware of the brief time we have, and I also realize that it's best spent when we can help another.

Jim.....I agree that Sean's philosophy is just right.  It is so important to get with it and get things done, but it is oh so important to take time to help others.

Hey, everyone!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

I've been very busy, but today I'm trying to follow up on these older posts like this one to see if anyone had any questions or if I really need to respond to anyone's comments.

I will read all the comments and respond to any that need a response, but rather than making comments here in my post to each and every one of you, I'll just let everyone know that I have read all the comments and if there are any questions, I'll answer those in comments below this one. Otherwise I'll simply post this comment and then head over to your blogs soon to visit and do some reading and commenting. I hope you'll have a nice welcome mat out for me!

Don't forget to let your cat come out to play with all the other ActiveRain kitties. Your cat-friendly dogs can come, too!

If you need a great cat book, get yourself a copy of Peg Silloway's The Cat Lover's Book of Days.

Hope all is well with everyone.
