“How you spend your time is more important than how you spend your money. Money mistakes can be corrected, but time is gone forever.”
– David Norris, Irish Scholar
Time is an expensive currency. Many people view money as their greatest form of payment or currency because it is tangible. If I go to the store and buy a new pair of shoes, I have paid money and in return I have the shoes that I purchased in hand, a tangible product in return for my money. When I go out to eat with my wife, we have had the experience of having a wonderful meal together and we have those tangible feelings of good food and fellowship.
When we are concerned about money and that is our focus, we can always make more of it. We may have to do more work to make more money, but there is always a way to make more money. However, when we spend time doing something, we cannot get that time back, it has been spent. So we ask our selves this question: Are we spending our time or are we investing our time?
The Heart of the Competitor INVESTS their time. An investment is based on deposits and allowing the deposit to work for you, so it pays off down the road. The Heart of the Competitor makes the deposits in the competitive bank during practice, strength and conditioning, pre-game preparation, mental conditioning, and every other opportunity there is to improve performance. These deposits are made with their time, so a withdrawal can be made during competition.
So the question becomes:
Will you focus on investing your time and making deposits?
Will you spend your time and have nothing in your trust fund during competition?
Question of the Day:
What did you do today to INVEST your time?
