“Lose an hour in the morning and you will be looking for it the rest of the day.” – Lord Chesterfield


Oh, this one motivated me to ensure it was written yesterday! Honestly! It’s a situation that has been all too familiar a feature of life in the past. Do you recognise it?

For example, how many times have you left something to the last minute and, in panic mode, have had to put other work off in order to complete that task, thus meaning you burn valuable time in the morning and then struggle to catch up with other tasks that need to be done that day?

Alternatively, procrastination is as much of a thief – when you waste the time in the morning with irrelevant or unimportant, non-urgent tasks, the afternoon will then call in that debt. 

Time management is a discipline, a habit, one you would do well to adopt and implement regularly – because time is not infinite, in the sense of our individual existence. Even if you believe in reincarnation, you only have so much time in this one – and in certain eastern philosophies, the belief goes that there is no past and no future – only here and now.

Make the most of the now – the time you have right at this very moment – which you are using to either read or listen (or both, if you’re very keen!) to this article – it could be the exact motivation you have been looking for to……well……get on with whatever it is you want to, or should, do – without further delay or distraction from too many choices around you. 

Don’t lose that hour this morning – don’t lose another minute or even waste a single second right now – we’ve said it before here and we’ll say it again – when it comes to dreaming about doing something, it only comes true when you do it – only doing gets things done!

You have approximately 60 hours left of 2021 (depending on when you read/listen to this). What positive action can you take right now to take you closer to your dreams, goals and ambitions? What will you do with the rest of this year to set you up well for next? Do it!

Love and light,

Jim Sharman
