If you waste your time, you waste your life. Do you want that to happen to you? To stop it from happening to you, here are six pieces of advice that can help you.

Do not squander your time.

“Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time; for that is the stuff life is made of.”- Benjamin Franklin

If you value your life, do not waste your time. If you want to grow, do not squander your time. And do not hang out with time wasters. If you do, they will waste your own time.

Your time is your life.

“Time is life.”- Michael Ende

Your time is your life. How you spend your time is how you live your life. How you start your day is how you are going to end your day. If you start it well, you will end it well. To end your day well, do not waste your time.

Things Take time

“Lots of things take time, and time was Momo’s only form of wealth.”- Michael Ende

Things take time to grow. It takes time to move from point A to point B. Nothing happens overnight. If you want to grow yourself, you must be patient with yourself.

Time is happening right now.

“Time begins and then time ends, and then time begins once again. It is happening now, it has happened before, it will surely happen again.”- Lexx

Whether you take what you are doing seriously or not, time is happening right now. It never stops. And it will never stop. If you want to make it big in life, you must begin. Do not wait for the right time.

Everything is time. Seize the time.

“The thing about time is, there’s so much of it between so little.”- Mihael Greenhut

Live your life in the Now. Do not worry yourself about what happened to you yesterday. It is over. The only thing you can do is to learn from it.

The present moment contains past and future.”

“The present moment contains past and future. The secret of transformation, is in the way we handle this very moment.”- Nhat Hanh

It is not what happens to you that matters. It is how you handle it that matters. Wherever you are, be there. whatever you are doing, do it. If you want to transform your life, your world, you must focus on this very moment.

Are You Fully Present In The Here And Now

Today matters. Before you start your day, before you leave your house, before you even make your morning coffee, make sure you have one positive thing that you want to get done. You can choose anything. It doesn’t really matter. You know what is important to you. But choose something based on your values, your goals, your dreams, your purpose in life.

You can focus on completing your unfinished project. You can focus on giving people love. You can focus on doing one thing at a time. You can focus on being fully present when you are with someone. The choice is yours.

One positive thing is better than twenty negative things. Doing one thing really well is better than doing so many things poorly. When it comes to task, when it comes to getting your task done, focus on one thing. It is better for you. It is better for your mind. It is better for your growth and development. It is better for your productivity.

When you focus on doing more than one thing at a time, you won’t get what you want. You will not do very well. You will do poorly. Why is that? Because you have divided your attention into so many places. You know that when attention is divided, when you don’t focus your attention on one thing, you will do really poorly.

But you can train yourself to be wherever you are. I think that is the best way to focus on one thing at a time. Just be there. Don’t fly. Do not think about anything. Do not get distracted by what you didn’t do well yesterday. Remember, what you are trying to learn now is what you didn’t do well yersterday. To stop yesterday from happening again, you must experience everything you are doing right now. Be there. Be yourself. Have purpose. Know what you want. Know how to get it.

Whatever you do, wherever you are, be fully present. Be there. Because success happens when we are present. Transformation happens when we are present in the here. Life changes when we are present. The question is, Are you present in the here and now?
