“Life is like a fat strip of bacon. You have to separate the meat from the fat in order to be the master of your time.”
This week let us see how we can compare life to a strip of bacon.
As William Penn once said“Time is what we want most and use worst.” and so we ought to make wise use of it by prioritizing the activities that need our time.
We must ask ourselves the question“What comes first, the compass or the clock? Before one can truly manage time (the clock), it is important to know where we are going, what our priorities and goals are, in which direction we are headed (the compass). Where we are headed is more important than how fast we are going. Rather than always focusing on what’s urgent, we ought to learn to focus on what is really important.“ – Unknown.
Just like a strip of bacon has both fat and meat in it and in order to really enjoy the bacon we first have to separate them, similarly in life we ought to spend our valuable time and precious energy by focusing on the more important activities (the meat) so that we will have no time to waste on the less important ones (the fat).
“Besides the noble art of getting things done, we need to master the noble art of leaving things undone too. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non essentials.”- Lin Yutang
Learning to say NO to the little things in life will give us the power to say YES to the big things.
Nugget of Life : “Time = life; therefore, waste your time and waste your life, or master your time and master your life.“ – Alan Lakein
Have a wonderful week.
