Are You Saving Time...or Investing It?


Our city hosted the "Get Motivated" seminars by Peter Lowe come to town this past week. It is a fantastic deal. For a few bucks, you get to spend the day with some of the greatest opinion leaders on the subjects of leadership, wealth, spirituality, relationships, and motivation. This year Rudy Giuliani headlined it and was joined by Zig Ziglar, Phil Towne, and many others. The events also draw nearly 8000-12,000 people.

One of the interesting observation that I notice when I'm at an event is that the people who attend usually are high achievers. They take the bull by the horns and make things happen. They are also open to new possibilities and opportunities. They are also very "busy" people. Conversely, the people who could really benefit from attending an event never find the time to invest in themselves. Yet they can provide an accurate account of the hottest television programs on any given evening. When is the last time you received a check from a television station for watching their shows?

We have one commodity that we can never get more of...time. You spend your time on some activities and you invest it with others. Here are a few things that I have found to be great uses of time:
1. Reading
2. Writing
3. Time with family
4. Working out
5. Attending seminars
6. Prayer or meditation

Think about it...the clock is ticking!
