The Choice Is Yours

It’s funny but true!
Some people make things happen, some watch things happen and some wonder what happened.
Doing any, some or all of these regularly can place you in the league of those that make things happen:
think, create, design, recommend, solve, generate, invent, start, correct, build, initiate, instigate, introduce, accomplish, suggest, organize, invite, change, summon, derive, compose and the like.
What do you spend the bulk of your time doing?
Do you discuss people, events or ideas?
When you spend time talking, you rarely have time to develop yourself, especially when the conversations are not directed towards developing ideas that would make a difference in the future.
Discussing people often creates avenues for gossip and hinders us from evaluating our own selves.
Knowing your strengths and weaknesses would always position you better for efficiency and reduce the chances of failure.
Do you spend your time thinking or talking about past events?
Making this your habit also deprives you of the time to make new things happen, except you are reviewing or evaluating for the purpose of a better event ahead.
What category of people do you spend your time with?
Achievers always have goals and targets. They are either working on a plan or implementing previous plans.
Ideas for the future and the best step to take at the moment often saturate their thoughts and conversations.
They are dynamic and creative, not necessarily conforming to previous patterns but exploring and creating new opportunities and systems.
Become an achiever and associate with achievers.
Don’t dwell in the past. Regret is one of such thiefs that rob you of the time you require to use today in setting tomorrow right.
Try not to repeat the mistakes you’ve made in the past.
Don’t spend your present mourning your past because you’ll be depriving your future of it’s opportunity to live and flourish.
Make the right choice in every step and choose the best subject in every dialogue because if time is the currency of life, then we must also learn to invest it in worthy ventures.
There is always a lot more to say but the choice is yours to make.

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!

    Time is indeed the currency of life. God values time more than money as He demands 1/7 of His time from us via sabbath; while He demands 1/10 of His money from us via tithing.

    I ususlly say that there’s always a choice; but not always a desirable choice. Great post.

    • Lovely analogy there! Money can be inherited, invested, borrowed, exchanged but time keeps ticking. The earlier we reallize that wise use of time and a right sense of value guarantees fulfilment, the more satisfactory and enjoyable our lives will turn. Thanks much for that beautiful idea.
