What do you want to do time is ticking?

We all must face our mortality; our lives on this earth are not very long. If we are not careful, time will slip through our fingers like grains of sand. This blog aims to help people refocus and use their time to live life to the fullest.

Is there is such thing as work & home life balance?

The quick and straightforward answer to this question is that if you have a successful career in an industry such as a lawyer or a doctor, you have to be prepared to work between 60 and 80 hours a week. 

There is a price for success. 

It would be best to choose the most important, your career or your family and personal life. The moment you make this decision which can vary from person to person, you will be able to prioritise your time. 

Dr Deborah Soh stated that ‘if you wish to have a successful career and a successful private life, you must learn to sacrifice yourself[1]’ 

I used this quote from the academic turned journalist to try to highlight the point that to succeed, there must be sacrifices that you can live with. 

I’m not going to go into detail on this point but think of Steve Jobs and his relationship with his eldest daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs.

Plan your time carefully

There are 168 hours in a week with these hours. 

If you are working a regular full-time job of 40 hours or whichever hours you currently work, you can use your spare time to learn new skills depending on your circumstances or work commitments. 

Due to the explosion of learning resources and online learning, nothing is stopping you, only yourself, from developing new skills in this competitive job market. 

If you take between one and two hours a day and give up watching television and soaps, this could give you two hours you can use to read up on new skills or take part in educational courses. 

Also, let’s not forget there are YouTube media that can show you how to create a blog, podcast, learn audio, video skills, and more.

Start living your dreams but know your capabilities.

If you are going to start something and start today, don’t start tomorrow. 

You must have a goal in mind. 

I will leave this paragraph with a video of Jim Rohn, a millionaire self-development coach and entrepreneur. 

I believe his words will speak and put forth a compelling argument.
