Maximizing your life is a strong term, no? But there are some real strategies that you and I can begin using today to live our lives to the fullest and make the most of our time on this earth by using Aces, Clods, and Swap Meets.
Aces are those areas of your life that produce the most for you personally. They are those things that give you the most satisfaction and pleasure, whether it’s spending time with family, oil painting at Yellowstone National Park, working on your suspense novel, or planting a new flowerbed. These activities are usually starved of your most precious resource: your time.
By diverting a larger portion your most precious resource (your time) to these areas of your life, you’re well on your way to experiencing a fuller, more richer life. Only you can determine what makes you happy (your passion) but once you’ve done that, spend larger chunks of time on those things.
Clods are those things, areas, or activities that get the majority of your most precious resource (your time), but they are poor producers in the satisfaction arena. Maybe your job is sucking the life from you, maybe you’re in a relationship that demands every waking moment, maybe that investment is keeping you up at night with worry. It doesn’t matter what it is, it is a time sink and it’s a poor producer for you.
