Clock Is Ticking

02 Feb 2017

This is a short message, a reminder for you to live in the now.

Each day 86,400 seconds tick by never again to return. There is not one single day you get to re-do, or a do-over.

Did you win the day, what did you do to move forward today?

Several times a year I will hear a speaker utter these words, “who in this room could have done more last year to improve their lives”? Every single time that question is ask all hands are raised (if we are being honest with ourselves)?

So what does this look like, to live a life with direction? What does it mean to me? Here are a few ideas that I try to live by, and it is a work in progress.

  • Plan better
  • Work harder
  • Play harder
  • Rest more
  • Love more
  • Be authentic
  • Live relational

I know all of these things are important, however we all get sidetracked. Living intentional is important. Put the first things first because you never know what tomorrow will bring.

We only have the here and now, make it the best you can today.

Thanks for spending a few minute with me today.
