The Important Things

Sometimes the things we say are essential, and the things we take the time to do, are often different. I am not sure exactly why that is. What I know is that it is a significant phenomenon that affects most people.

I have a course I’m working on completing. I also have a book that I have been waiting a year to read, and I just got it. Somehow reading that book eats not only spare time, It also eats the time I could be spending in course development. It makes me wonder if I need stronger dividing lines between the things I do.

We all have these temptations in our life. What would life be without a few temptations thrown into the mix? The trick is to balance our life structure, knowing that we are human. We will divert from time to time with temptations. We will have overwhelming work we need to get done. I guess the trick is to plan time for both.

Just as solid fences make good neighbors, well-planned time and time barriers make for good work and accomplishing everything you want.

When did you last have desires and needs clash over time? How did you successfully solve it?

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
