Some may start earlier than others and some may end later, but the fact remains we each have twenty four precious hours in a day. Waking up at 4:00 am doesn’t actually add any time to your day, you just chose to use less of it in bed resting. Steve Jobs built Apple, Jordan won six titles, and Starbucks has a location damn near every square mile all starting with the same tools at their disposal — time.
Begs the question — how are you really using your time? I know for a fact that I could use my time better. A big theme in our box is “More isn’t always better. Better is always better.” That mostly refers to movement, programming, and productivity as an athlete, but when I think of time I have to revert to what I preach. “Do I really need to get more done or be more productive?” Not necessarily. The focus should be to get better things done and get things done better.
Such a tough pill to swallow because we often associate quantity with quality. When, in reality, isn’t quality associated with quality? Do things well then find a way to do more things well. It will take you as a person in everything you do and everything you are to the next level.
You have the same number of hours in a day as everyone else. How you use them is up to you.
