​Many of us challenge ourselves and devote our time to organized events where our contributions are as wide ranging as volunteering, donating to a fundraising drive or running a 5K race. But how many of us challenge ourselves and dedicate the same time commitments to focusing on our own needs by volunteering, contributing or racing to improve our professional best and attain new limits of success?

Too frequently, you let your own personal campaigns limp to the finish line. Between professional and personal commitments and extra-curricular activities and interests you simply run out of bandwidth and focus when it comes to tackling those matters that can assist you to achieve better and more satisfying results.

If you want to be more effective with your time, you are the target of this post. How often do you think about time and how it relates to you and what you need to do? If you are like most people, this is a typical occurrence. Talking about time, or the lack thereof, may be a major preoccupation of yours, where you find yourself almost victimized to watch time and bemoan the fact that it flies by.

Fixating on the passing of time is a waste of your time.
