I have gone through and continue to happily go through more personal development. Personal development and its quest for personal growth, more often than not, are the missing links in the chain of business and personal success.As Warren Buffett once said, "Success is getting what you want.

Managing Time?

Achievement takes time but it is not about managing time. All of us whether we are rich or poor, happy or unhappy have 24 hours in a day.

We all start with the same amount of time. What we manage is how we use our time.

And to do that effectively, you must have objectives and focus for each day. Not only that, but to stay focused you must be able to see a long term outcome that excites you.

Most people don’t take objectives seriously. They put average effort into a lot of things thinking that by being involved in a great number of activities that it will yield them greater results.

Notice the word ‘effort’ in the last sentence. It is the key to success. Effort is the amount of energy you are able to put into something.

When people say, “I don’t have enough time to do this” most of the time what they are really saying is that “I don’t have enough energy to do this.”

If you have the energy to put superior thought and effort into a few things then you will keep your focus, increase the odds of accomplishing your objectives and having greater success.

Think about how you are managing your energy. When you understand what gives you energy and what takes it away you will be ready to better utilize your time to accomplish your objectives.

How you manage your energy will determine what you do with your time.

Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes

Jimmy Buffett in his song, Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, sings about changes and how nothing remains quite the same.

When we are trying to live our lives based on past memories and glories they are never the same. Why? Because the present we are now experiencing will color them. Sometimes they are lighter and sometimes they are darker.

Missing the great times of the past one can be grateful and happy that they had them or sad that they are not to be repeated.

That’s why living in the present with a purpose is so important. You must be creating those positive memories today that you can use as an impetus to create a better tomorrow.

Sadly, many people stop at creating a better present and wish for things as they were in the past. And their lives become full of deadening uniformity.

The great joy in life is that even if you can’t change your latitude you can change your attitude. Create a vision of the future you desire. Once you have that then you can start living in the present with meaning and purpose.

When the present becomes an exciting journey to the future you desire it will change your attitude and it may even change your latitude.
