Change is here to stay.

A New Year gives all of us an equal opportunity. That opportunity includes the challenge to bring about personal change over the next 12 months.

Everyone has 8,765 hours to change our lives.

If you were to ask you if you could change your life in 8,765 hours, most of you would say yes. But change is not easy.

We know to experience change we must change something. Of course, that includes a change in how we manage our time. Time is hard to grasp, almost a mystery. In looking ahead, it seems we have plenty of time to accomplish our dreams and desires. But when we are looking backward, we are amazed at how time escapes us. To experience the change that we seek, we must learn to make time work for us.

Let’s think a little deeper about what time is. Time is the measure of all of our experiences. For instance, after returning from a family outing or an event we say, “We had a great time.” If we did not enjoy ourselves, we say, “We had a terrible time.” You see, time is one of the ways we measure our outcomes.

Your experiences are determined by where you invest your time!


We have been taught that a key to a successful life is time management. While time management is critical, I focus on life management. If you learn to manage your life, your time becomes a slave to your life management. It is true that the person who cannot manage their life will never get beyond where they are.

Let’s say; you get out of bed late every day. If that is the case, you will become a slave to your own lack of discipline and the mismanagement of your time. This simple failure flows over into all areas of your life and personal growth. This type of lack will negatively affect all areas of personal development.

The alternative is that once we learn to manage our life, then time becomes our slave and friend.

Positive life management opens the door for personal development, spiritual growth, and the ability to maximize our potential.

We have learned that life management is far more important than time management.
