Time “Managed” is Time Wasted
When I ask people what they Value, everybody brings up the value of Family. And when asked what they mean by family, they all reply with an indication that it is important to them that they are part of something more than just themselves; that they belong to and spend their time with a defined group that shares common values and vision. It is their spouses, children, parents, siblings, co-workers, employees and friends. Everyone has values, and everyone values Family to some important degree. Think about your own Values… Family will be in there somewhere.

Are you thinking what a lot of people do when I offer them this challenge?

Their response was “ok”, and they raced to their room like they had just won the lottery.
