Final Boarding Call (2 of 5)

“Big Ben”

While touring in London we visited Big Ben–the famous clock connected to the houses of Parliament (Parliament: is legislative assembly of GREAT BRITAIN.)  Here, we learned three important principles concerning time. 

Time is impartial–It knows no man.  Each person is given 24 hours in a day, it’s up to me to make the most of those hours.

Time is relentless–Like a raging river.  No matter how hard I try, I cannot stop time.  It will keep going whether I’m ready for it or not.  It’s best to be ready. 

Time is precious–A treasure to care for.  I will not get back yesterday.  Each day is a gift.  I only have a few short years to make my life count. 

As a leader, time management is crucial.  Time management is life management. 

 Which of these three do you struggle with the most?

    “Time is precious – a treasure to care for”

    Too many times in the my life and the lives of my little boys, I have wished away their days. I have to constantly keep this in the forefront of my mind.

  • “Time is precious- a treasure to care for” This is a daily lesson for my time w/ God, My Wife, My Boys, My….

    Time is relentless- I sometimes wish that I could stop it!

    All are great lessons and many times relentless is a struggle; sometimes it would be great to have a pause button, to just think!

  • I think this is why I always kept after you kids—“get going”! I also can’t stand it if people say they are bored. Time marches on, make the most of every day!!

    After learning and applying these principles my life has changed completely. Time management is crucial for me in college. The way i preform to the best of my ability is the management of my time.
