“Time Does Not Wait for You” -Dad
I was always told this quote by my father especially in the mornings because I was always late in preparation for my day to school by getting showered, dressed, eating breakfast, and getting on my way. As I continue to grow older, I hold this statement as true.
Look at the time that has elapsed. What have you accomplished? What have you missed to achieve? Understand that we need to live in the moment but also pay attention to what is ours because “time doesn’t wait for you.”
We all should have goals in life: both short and long-term. Set up a checklist for yourself of the goals that you would like to accomplish in order to make sure that your time is used wisely. What do you want to accomplish in the next 3 months? 6 months? 12 months? When we set our short and long-term goals, we set ourselves up for success to achieve what is destined for us. Time is of the essence and let’s make the best of it!
When creating these goals, always remember:
- No goal is ever stupid or dumb: don’t let people undermine you of your dreams
- Be realistic with your goal’s timing (it might take you 6 months to properly study for an entry level exam to graduate school vs. 3 months to properly secure a new job)
- Sky is the limit: any goal can be achieved as long as you put your mind, will, and determination into it.
- Never give up on yourself: understand that with time, anything is achievable
