Several years ago, a business owner and sales manager uttered these words that have resonated with me throughout my life: ” I can give you all of the training and tools you need to succeed, but I cannot give you more time.”

When you stop and think about it, that may be one of the truest statements ever spoken because we can never give ourselves more time. I chuckle when I read or hear advertisements that claim, “we can save you time.” Really? How do you actually save time? Do you have a special box that you put time in so that I can use it later? Of course not, we can’t save time; we can only make better use of the time we are given.
