It Takes Time

“I intended to call you last week but got busy, and time slipped through my fingers.”

“I would love to take a couple of days to visit my folks, but the time just doesn’t exist.”

It’s true. We’re getting busier, and time is getting scarce.

Regardless of how busy we are, there are 10 things we need to take time for. We need to take time to work because it is the price of success. We need to take time to think because it is the source of power and the key to making good decisions. We need to take time to play because it is the secret of youth, and all work does is make a person dull. We need to take time to read because it is the foundation of knowledge.

We need to take time to worship because it is the highway of reverence and washes the dust of the earth from our eyes. We need to take time to help and enjoy friends because our friends ultimately are going to be a major source of comfort and happiness. We need to take time to love because it is the sacrament of life that may be the most important — yet the most missed — element in our lives. We need to take time to dream because it is the foundation upon which hope is built. We need to take time to laugh. It has been called the “music of the soul.” We need to take time to plan. It’s the secret of being able to have time for the first nine things. We need to remember that the things that can’t be counted are the things that count the most.

Follow these steps and you will have something to smile about.
