It’s always good to ask the tough questions, whether the truth hurts or not. Sometimes you could discover the truth and if you make the necessary adjustments you can improve as a person.

In a day,

How much time do you spend at work?

How much time do you spend cooking?

How much time do you spend cleaning?

How much time do you spend running errands?

How about, how much time you spend being lazy, or watching tv, sitting on your smart phone, playing games?

Do you have time to pray?

Do you have time to work on yourself as a person, reading?

Writing?

Working on your marriage?

Keep yourself in shape to be happy with your own image and health?

Out of all these, what’s most important?

Many people spend most of their time being busy doing things, and the least of their time investing in becoming better through personal and professional development.

Are you keeping your spouse interested? Are you proud of who you are? If you’re not, don’t get sad or depressed. That won’t help right now. Get to work. Get up and spend 5 more minutes today than you did yesterday working on these things that matter.

Do something everyday to improve. Even if you’re perfect (you’re not). We all have work to do but it’s common for us to say, “I don’t have time”. False. Usually, “I don’t MAKE time” is more truthful. We make time for what’s important to us, and at this pace I think what’s important to us is to see what everyone else is doing on social media, or to see what drama we can be entertained by on TV.

Let’s draw back from those habits since we know it’s unproductive, and let’s grab a book, or self-development/motivation video, or head to church, and let’s become the best people we can be.

I'm a married man of 18 years. We have three kids, 2 girls and a boy, and I'm a 17-year active duty military service member. I've always been a critical thinker and a close listener to what people are saying. I love to read and watch videos for personal and professional development. There's a ton of information out there and it doesn't always synchronize, so I enjoy the conversations that can develop from it. This is why I decided to share my thoughts and open the conversations to the world online. We can all become better through these discussions because there's always a different perspective.
