Focus On What Matters

To say you don’t have enough time is like saying you don’t want to.

Most of us unknowingly spend our days working on different tasks that seem important in the moment. Take a look back at what you accomplished today. What did you accomplish? I bet that if you looked closely enough, you’ll find that what you spent most of your day doing could be classified as urgent, but not important. Did you check your email, your social networking sites, or organize your workspace? If you spent even a minute on any of those three activities, you wasted your time. These are classic examples of “urgent” tasks that veil themselves as “important” tasks.

These urgent tasks have a nasty habit of getting in the way of our health and fitness.  Most of our day is cluttered with these useless activities that bring us no closer to any sort of results.  Here’s a quick test to see if what you’re doing is getting you any closer to what you are trying to achieve.

Is your body in the same place it was last year at this time?

If yes, then the answer is you’re doing something wrong and wasting a whole lot of time along the way.

If no, then you’re either regressing or achieving your goals.  Hopefully the latter. 

To say you don’t have enough time is like saying you don’t want to.  Time is a created thing.  You are in control of your time.  If something is taking up all of your time, you are allowing it to.

Don’t let anything get in control of your health.  It’s not worth it. 

The ability to adequately prioritize each day’s tasks and manage your time will impact your life tremendously. You will find yourself reaching your goals faster than ever. You’ll notice a boost in productivity, and you’ll find your life having new meaning. Your goals are your motivating factor, so don’t be the only thing preventing you from reaching those goals.
