Simple Plan that Matters


Time is not a renewable resource.  It seems we never have enough.  This isn't anything new, it's an age old issue.  While no amount of money ever bought us a second of time, here's a simple concept that could...for free.

Don't touch anything twice.

Open the email, move it on.  Get the laundry out of the dryer, put it away.

Get those everyday tasks done & move on.  Don't wait for the timing to be just right or when you're in the mood.

"What one postpones one actually abandons.                                         ...timing is the most important element in the success of any effort."
-Peter Drucker "The Effective Executive"

Choose putting effort (time) into opportunities of the future, not problems of the past. It matters that you make a difference so make a difference that matters.
