The act of compassion begins with full attention, just as rapport does.

Use your time wisely

Don’t settle for just any activity when you can benefit from purposeful, focused accomplishment. Fill your time with the actions that will fill your life with value.

What things are you planning to do in the next hour, over the rest of the day? When you look back later at how you spent your time today, will you be filled with gratitude or filled with regret?

Today is your opportunity to improve all the rest of your days. If you squander these particular moments, you’ll never get them back.

The greatest influence and leverage you’ll ever have over your future, is now. Choose to use that influence in a positive, productive, intentional way.

Sure, it’s tempting to waste a few minutes, or several hours, with meaningless diversions. But before you do, remind yourself of the much better alternative.

You can choose instead to use your time wisely, to create value that could improve your whole future. And that’s a choice you’ll never have to regret.

— Ralph Marston
