Enough is enough. Stop wasting time.
I’ve been telling myself for quite some time now that I wanted to get started on my personal blog. However, as you know, what we want to do doesn’t always go along with what we actually end up doing.
The reason I didn’t get started weeks ago? Well, it’s actually pretty good. I blame video games.
First came Assassin’s Creed 3 and then came Halo 4 and then came Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. How can you honestly expect anyone to get anything done when blockbuster titles such as these are being released so close to each other?
Time = Money
In all seriousness, the past few weeks have once again helped me to see that time is money and much more.
Time is an asset that you can never grow or re-allocate once you’ve spent it. You can’t pray to God at night, “Lord, please give me back those 5 hours I just spent gaming. I have fallen behind on a work project.”
Everything of true value requires time. Relationships require time to grow. Mastering a sport requires thousands of hours of practice. Becoming educated on a subject requires time to be spent on reading and watching. Heck, even becoming proficient at a video game requires hours of quality gaming.
Over the next few weeks I am going to take inventory of how I am spending my time. I challenge you to do the same. Part of why I am doing this is because I have noticed my discipline slack off over the past few months. I need to stick to my plans and see them through. Because of this I am making it a goal to write a blog post every 2 weeks. If I do it more often then I will be ahead of schedule.
The cold, hard truth.
If we are to make any sort of impact on the world around us we need to spend our time doing things that matter. This means spending time in fellowship with one another, reading about as many subjects as we can, helping those around us, loving each other, and so much more.
Don’t worry. We can still play video games too…
