Time well spent

How did you just spend the last hour? What will you do with the next. At the end of this day, what will you be able to look back upon with satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment?

Achievement is not something that just comes to you. It is something you create within the minutes, hours and days you have at your disposal. Now is the time to make it happen.

The results of success are impressive, exciting and glamorous. Yet the efforts that go into creating success are, more often than not, rather tedious. You cannot have one without the other. The star athlete who makes it look so effortless on the field has spent hour upon countless grueling hour in practice.

Those hours spent in behind-the-scenes effort are what lead to victory and success, no matter what the field of endeavor. Everyone has the same amount of time available each day. Some use it far more effectively than others. What will you do with yours today?
