Lying To Ourselves Is The Worst Lie Of All

Let’s get radically honest. You are the only person who really values your time. Think about it. How many times have you been a position where you needed or wanted to accomplish something (eat lunch, attend a school function, visit a relative, take a vacation), but someone else (co-worker, boss, spouse, child, customer) demanded that you bend to their priorities? You ARE the only person who values your time.
It’s because of this fact that we need to insure we use our time wisely. Time is the “stuff” that life is made of, making the most of it should be our top priority. To do so, we need to ask ourselves some hard questions and demand truthful answers.
I’m guilty of deluding myself, too. I convince myself that I’m doing something valuable – and I AM – but I trick myself by not doing what I should be doing. It’s a game we all play when we justify putting off an important project by doing something else worthwhile or noble instead. Let’s stop playing games. Let’s start doing what we know we should be doing and end the delusional thinking.
Ask yourself these questions and answer them honestly to yourself.
Inevitably, there will be someone who says they don’t want to be productive all the time and that’s okay! For the record, down time IS valuable. We recharge our cell phone  battery as a proactive exercise and recharging your “personal batteries” is proactive as well. But don’t delude yourself into thinking that you’re recharging when you’re not.
Remember, no one will value your time more than you. Don’t waste it on things that have no consequence. Time flies. Make the most of what you have.
