    When Will I Ever Have Enough Time?

    An excerpt from First Thing Every Morning by Lewis Timberlake

    Imagine if your bank credited your account each morning with $86,400 - with no balance carried from day to day - what would you do? Well, you do have such a bank...it's called TIME.

    Every morning it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it rules off as "lost" whatever you have failed to use toward good purposes. It carries over no balances and allows no overdrafts. You can't hoard it, save it, store it, loan it or invest it. You can only use it.

    Here's a story that drives the point home.

    Arthur Berry was described by Time as "the slickest second-story man in the East," truly one of the most famous jewel thieves of all times. In his years of crime, he committed as many as 150 burglaries and stole jewels valued between $5 and $10 million. He seldom robbed from anyone not listed in the Social Register and often did his work in a tuxedo. On an occasion or two, when caught in the act of a crime by a victim, he charmed his way out of being reported to the police.

    Like most people who engage in a life of crime, he was eventually caught, convicted and served 25 years in prison for his crimes. Following his release, he worked as a counterman in a roadside restaurant on the East Coast for $50 a week.

    A newspaper reporter found him and interviewed him about his life. After telling about the thrilling episodes of his life he came to the conclusion of the interview saying, "I am not good at morals. But early in my life I was intelligent and clever, and I got along well with people. I think I could have made something of my life, but I didn't. So when you write the story of my life, when you tell people about all the burglaries, don't leave out the biggest one of all... Don't just tell them I robbed Jesse Livermore, the Wall Street baron or the cousin of the King of England. You tell them Arthur Berry robbed Arthur Berry."

    Here are six terrific truths about time:

    First: Nobody can manage time. You can only manage those things that take up your time.

    Second: Time is expensive. As a matter of fact, 80 percent of our day is spent on those things or those people that only bring us 2 percent of our results.

    Third: Time is perishable. It cannot be saved for later use.

    Fourth: Time is measurable. Everybody has the same amount of time...pauper or king. It is not how much time you have; it is how much you use.

    Fifth: Time is irreplaceable. We never make back time once it is gone.

    Sixth: Time is a priority. You have enough time for anything in the world, so long as it ranks high enough among your priorities.


    How will you use YOUR time today?





  • Hey All !

  • EXTRA EXTRA "read" all about it...now that I have your attention; I would like to recommend to anyone who is interested in AB to consider going to Vanessa Hart workshop. I am posting this in the PTU cuz I know u will have a positive experience. With the extra people and resources on hand you will totally get your bang for your buck!!

  • I'm only sorry I could not make the trek to the Big Apple to see you and enjoy the workshop. NYC is a pretty good haul from here, lol.
  • Hello my dear Positive Thinkers!

    NewYorkSkyline.jpgJust a quick note to let you know that we are back from a very successful Performance Weekend Event in the BIG APPLE! What an amazing place!

    It was a terrific trip (we went a little early for some sight-seeing) and the workshop couldn't have gone better. What a terrific group of people!! I'm sure a few of them will be joining us here in the near future.

    Five of our Positive Thinkers were in attendance!!!  Teri Plunkett, Jay Elzweig, Rob Sciglimpaglia, Amy Taylor and Paul Bellantoni!!  WOW!!!!!

    How cool is that?

    Just wanted to thank you all for your kind and positive wishes. We had un-eventful flights BOTH ways, all reservations and sight-seeing trips were problem free, the hotel beds were comfortable, The Addams Family was an absolutely amazing Broadway show (the best choice, by far), everywhere we ate was scrumptious and we all had good health and stamina during the trip. Now, I know we didn't have that much success without all of you - so thanks!!

    One more thing - you may have noticed a little box right under the description of our group (at the top of this page) where you can LIKE the page. Will you please be a doll and click the box? How cool would it be if there were also 1003 "likes?" WOOT!


    It's good to be back - love you guys!





  • Have a great time, Christine! Take pictures and share ...
