Hello Apple Crunchers
It’s been far too long. I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit.
I am home for the week and of course far deeper in thought than usual. There is something about home that refocuses your energy, makes you ponder your paths, habits & plans etc. This includes how I am using my time. Got my beloved mother to sit down with me and converse on themes we’ve identified as time wasters which equate to wasting your life.
Here’s the List:
2. Not being able to say no
4. Not changing bad habits
6. Not doing things that ‘right the 1st time.’
7. Not acknowledging bad habits i.e. pride/not saying sorry
9. Poor cell-phone management inc. social media/emails etc
10. A lack of knowledge
Myles Munroe painfully says: “The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry our their dream.”
In short, how one uses their time, determines what they will achieve with their lives. In essence, our lives are a sum total of how we use our time. A few years ago I read a profound chapter on the value of time in Jonathan Edwards book ‘sinners in the hands of an angry God.’ I seriously recommend this chapter.
