As you approach this week the playing field will be level in one area … TIME.

The size of your budget, team, or customer base may be smaller, but you have the same amount of time as everyone else.

Moses once prayed, “So teach us to number our days that we may present to thee a heart of wisdom.” Peter Drucker wrote, “Know Thy Time.” 

What Moses and Drucker both knew was that how a leader uses his time ultimately determines the quality and effectiveness of his life and influence.

As you approach your 168 hours this week, I encourage you to give some thought to your time on the front end rather than waiting to give an account after it has been spent. Backside results are always better when front side planning has been done. Tell your time where to go or someone else will.

We frequently hear the phrase, “What a waste of time.” The word waste is defined, to use or expend carelessly, extravagantly, or to no purpose. Should we ever carelessly expend our time with no purpose? And yet we are all guilty of squandering our minutes more than we like to admit.

This week you will be tempted to allow your time to slip away. Like me, you will pay attention to your bank account balance, interestingly, ignoring your time, thinking you will always have more. The truth is, you can make more money, but you cannot make more time.

Know thy time this week and watch what happens to your production, influence, and, ultimately, your fulfillment. They will all increase. Please don’t allow the moments to tick away carelessly, extravagantly, or with no purpose. 

You really can accomplish something great this week, but it will cost you your most valuable resource.

Your TIME.

Leadership Begins at Home,
