Life’s Too Short To Waste Time

Today I want to make it clear to everyone that life is too short to waste time! We are only here once and we should always make the most of what we have.

Tick tock, tick tock, goes the clock.

Tick tock, tick tock, it never stops.

Time continues to move on second by second. The clock never stops.

Life is far too short to waste.

You only get one life to live, so live it to the utmost .

The time you have races by extraordinarily fast … and seems to pass even more quickly as the years pass us by.

The older we get the less time we have to waste.

No matter what your age you need to make the most of every second, minute, and hour you have. It matters that you spend them in the best and fullest way possible.

Live it right, do what your heart tells you is the right thing to do, and go for those things that will make you truly happy and benefit both you and the lives of others. During the time you have you get the opportunity to leave your lasting legacy. Make this something that is brilliant.

Live your life and make it count. Be thankful. Be brave. Strive to be all you can.

Perhaps you’ve not yet come to value how precious your time here really is.

Hopefully, when you do, it’ll make a huge difference to the way you live.

You see, while most of us know that life is too short, very few of us go that one step further and allow that powerful fact to guide our everyday living.

Ask yourself ‘What can I achieve with the time I have available today?’

Set out each and every day to be your brilliant best. To make a mark, to create a memorable day for all the right reasons.

It’s only when you do and then act to make the most of every moment, you give yourself the possibilities for great things to happen in your life.

When you realise that life is too short to waste, your life can move forward in huge strides. No longer will you squander your life by living in a way that you’re not happy with, not becoming all that you can be

How much time do you waste, every day?

You probably don’t try to, or mean to, yet I would hazard a guess that you’re probably losing hours of productive time every single day.

You sometimes get to the end of the evening and wonder what you’ve actually done all day.

But you don’t do this just once in a while. More likely you do this day after day. And these days mount up. So to move your life on you have to minimize wasted time and get more done.

Rather than throw at you the typical time management tips I want to offer you a different approach. I want you to read these wonderful quotes, let them sink in to your subconscious and then act on them.

1. “You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it.” – Charles Buxton

When something is truly important to you, you will always be able to make the time for it. Make sure that those things which are important are those which will change your life for the better.

2. “Nothing is ours except Time” – Geothe

Time is yours to do with it what you want. You are the one in control of your time if you allow yourself to be. No one else is, and nor are circumstances.

3. Dost thou love life, then do not squander time, for that’s the stuff life is made of. – Benjamin Franklin

Life is not dull or boring when you connect with your passions, when you allow yourself to link with your love for living, for others, for who you are and what you do. When you are inspired you will never allow time to escape.

4. To do two things at once is to do neither. – Publius Syrus

Anything worth doing is worth doing properly. Focus your entire self on the job at hand and don’t let anything else distract you. Multi tasking is a great concept but putting all your energies into a laser beam focus into that one thing that’s most important is the way to get something done to your best of your ability.

5. Time is really the only capital that any human being has, and the only thing he can’t afford to lose. – Thomas Edison

When we look back over our lives, we may well see the houses, the cars and the businesses we built, but I believe the one thing we will look at most closely is how well we used the time we had on our journey through life. Did we make the most of what we had.

6. People who cannot find time for recreation are obliged sooner or later to find time for illness. – John Wanamaker

We have to make time for fun, laughter and happiness. We need to build into our schedules time for leisure, because rest, relaxation and getting away from our normal every day routines is essential to us to allow the best of who we are to come through.

7. The moment has no time. – Leonardo Da Vinci

When you connect to the moment, appreciate those things you are doing, or just the place you may be then time no longer matters. It’s though time stands still.

8. “The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.” ~ Author unknown

Far too many dreams go unfulfilled. Countless ambitions remain unexplored. Goals are left unachieved. All because those who had them never got round to doing anything. What a wasted opportunity. Never be that person who didn’t at least try.

9. “Live every day as if it were your last and then some day you’ll be right.” ~ H.H. “Breaker” Morant

Let this perspective encourage you to spend your valuable time in more meaningful and satisfying ways. With this perhaps being your last day You stop wasting time and make sure you get the most out of every second.

So never forget, life is too short, passing way too quickly.

Start living and stop waiting!

The clock is ticking.
