How To Invest Your Time.

Trust me — this works like a charm.

If there’s anything you really don’t want to procrastinate for, it’s your life

Every once in a while, you look at the mountain of things you want to do, and you can’t help but wonder how you’ll ever get to the top.

“Consistently spend your time in the right places for a long enough time, and you’ll eventually get the results you want.”

Anyone can do the same. The million-dollar question (literally) is how.

Don’t Sprint In A Marathon.

I’m going to make a quick guess and say you’ve heard this quote being tossed around before:

“Nothing’s impossible.”

Or some other variation of the same thing. I’ve got to say that it’s one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard. And I’m guessing you’re wondering if “stupidest” even counts as a real word. Well, I don’t care, because that’s how mad I am right now.

“Nothing’s impossible with enough time.”

Bringing time into the equation changes everything.

Finding Focus.

About two years ago, I was given the beautiful nickname of butterfly. As much as that confused me back then, my best guess now is because I used to fly around between different thoughts and things like it was my last day on Earth.

Typical schedules for me.

Diversifying your money is one thing. Spreading out your willpower, focus, and energy too much eventually makes you collapse.

Good things tend to happen when you’re using your capabilities to push one thing forward in your life. The fewer things you spend your energy pushing, the further you’re able to take them.

Practice Pottery

Don’t click away — it’s an analogy.

There’s people in their sixties and seventies that people would kill to switch their lives with. Where’s their potential? That’s right. It’s gone.

As you begin creating your pot with a tiny piece of clay, there’s full possibility for you to redirect your clay and keep transforming what you make. After all, you still have so much clay you can use to work your creation into anything you want:

Life’s your journey of focusing and converting your raw potential into something real. It’s your life, and it’s your choice what that “something” is, how much clay you use, or if you even use it.

Of course, you can make a larger pot with more clay, but it makes no difference if you don’t know how to handle making an average pot with an average amount of clay. Doing that’s a big achievement on its own.

Closing Notes.

There’s some things in life we tend to seriously overcomplicate. I’d argue that life itself is one of those things. With all the meanings we’ve tried giving it, the real deal comes down to what you make of yourself with the time you have. Unsurprisingly, we’ve complicated that, too.

That’s why you shouldn’t be using to do things you don’t want to do and spending it on people you don’t care about. Life really is too short for that.

Other than, the only real piece of advice I can give you is to keep doing and evolving. No matter what you do, you’ll end up closer to where you want to be — even if you don’t know what it is yet. With that, I wish you the best.

I write about things every week(ish).
