Vita is brevis and tempus does fugit.
Hippocrates, the ‘the father of medicine’, was right back in 400BC and is today. Virgil was right back in 29BC and is right today.
None of us have time, none of us can save time, all of us slide through it at exactly the same rate. That’s why it is so important for us to synchronise our compass and our clock, to weld our purpose to our priorities, even if it only means that we make better decisions on doing the right task at the right time for the right reasons.
Prioritising our tasks, of course is only a very small part of the game. The big play is prioritising our purpose, making the most of our talents, strengths and passions and creating a life well lived – whatever that is for each of us.
I call this ‘Welding purpose to priorities’ #wp2p: Defining Purpose, Deciding Strategy, Defending Priorities, Delivering Results.
