Precious Little


PRECIOUS LITTLE OF WHAT WE DO REALLY MATTERS! You read that right. Think of the deadline you dreaded 5 years ago and gave up time with your family and friends and perhaps even your health suffered to complete. Who remembers? Who still cares? Think of your entire adult life after you left school. How much of it has been recorded in the history books? I'll bet precious little.

PLEASE, never feel bad about this. We all do our best and should to make our contribution to society and to earn an income for ourselves and family. Just remember precious little matters and stop fretting and worrying. Ask yourself, in 5 years, who will care? If the answer comes back "No one.", then maybe you should not worry NOW. Do your best. Get it done with your best effort in 8 or 9 hours and go home.

If you have living parents, spouse or children, do THEY matter? Maybe invest more time with them. Our life should count for something. It just can't count for everything. Strive to focus more on what does matter and less on what does not.

Here is how I am changing and you may wish to make your own list.

  1. Worry about nothing as worry fixes nothing.
  2. Reaffirm your priorities (Family, Fitness, Finances and Friends in that order) 
  3. Make everyday count in terms of your priorities investing time according to your priorities. 
  4. Fun should come automatically by following your priorities. If it does not, maybe your priorities are wrong. 
  5.  Analyze every day and every week to ensure you are getting the most from your investment of time.

Remember, precious little of what we do matters so make what does matter a higher priority by investing more time in it.
