Is Time on Your Side?

 

 

“Time is free, but it’s priceless.

 

You can’t own it, but you can use it.

 

You can’t keep it but you can spend it.

 

Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back.”

 

                                         Harvey Mackay

 

 

 

I just started to read the book, “The Slight Edge” by Jeff Olson.

 

 It is a great book to read.  Each chapter is better than the previous chapter.  I don’t want to put it down.

 

 

He looks at daily goals and shows how the actions that are needed to get to our goals are really easy to do. 

 

He relates that …”Here’s the problem: every action that is easy to do, is also easy not to do.”

 

He goes on to discuss choices and how they can help us or harm us.  Either way it will have the compound effect on the outcome to our goals.

 

 

 

Is time on your side?  It all depends on the choices you make each and everyday.

 

 

 

Get this book by Jeff Olson.  “The Slight Edge” for I know you will thoroughly enjoy as well as begin to make daily choices that add value to your life.

It all has to do with what bores or stimulates us, right? A terribe workplace can last an eternity. 

 

Love and light,

Hind sight is usually 20/20. It would never do to try and do again but I sure wish I would have done a few things differently. I suppose when we look back though it seems like things did come out the way they're supposed to. Life is interesting. Time can sometimes seem cruel.

Sounds like a interesting book. I have a book shelf with about twenty books waiting for me to read. I am extremely good at purchasing books, not so good reading them. I will definitely add this to my Amazon watchlist. Thanks!

We all have control of how we use our time.  Great quote by Harvey MacKay.  It also sounds like you're learning so much from "The Slight Edge".

I have learned a long time ago, we are here in time. All this means we have very little time to impact those around us in a very short time period. Thank you for the recommendations.

Hi Yoni, dig into that book shelf and commit to reading 10 pages a day.  By the end of the year you will have finished 10 to 15 books and gained great insight.  This is covered in the Slight Edge!!

Hi Joe, each day comes and goes and it is the choices which we make each day over time that can impact us in a positve or a negative way.  It is our choice.  This is a great book!!

I have often wondered why people do not read more. There is so much of value between the covers of a book. That information, tips, insights can change the course of a person's life. In many cases, people say they just do not have 'TIME'... I still feel awesome sadness when I am reminded of the fire that destroyed the royal Library of Alexandria -  Alexandria, Egypt in 48 BC.  It was the world's library.
