if you will sacrifice everything else for it.

But you must have a clear idea of the problem
or the goal you want to reach.
People who try to do something and fail
are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed.
Experiencing failure is inevitable on your journey to be successful.
Every defeat is merely an installment to victory.

A State of Mind
What we're going to talk about has nothing to do with time management in the

find time. It doesn't work that way.
Are You Running Your
Life or is it Running You? How are you spending your time and energy?
There has been a great deal written on the concept of time
management. The simple fact is that each of us has the same 24
hours a day. We cannot create more time. What we can do is manage
our energy and our thoughts to change how we experience time and
make considered choices on how we are spending our time.

can get back her focus on what's important.
