Twenty Four hours. That’s all you get in any given day.
You are the only person accountable for how well or how badly you spend your time. You are also the one responsible for putting a specific value to your time.
When you spend your time on any given activity, make sure that what you gain from that activity reflects the value of your time. It is considered a waste of your time if you are sinking a large amount of time into an activity that holds limited benefits for you.
Equally, we have to understand that we can invest badly in a potentially beneficial activity if we do not give enough time to it. This needs to be applied to a martial arts context, as often valuable training time is squandered by arriving late for class, half-assing warm ups, skipping reps in drilling or sitting out during sparring when still able to train.
Our time is limited, it is valuable and we need to make sure we use it well. Put value on your time and keep yourself accountable for how you spend or waste it.
Time is the only thing you have, and you have far less of it than is comfortable to think about. Get out there and get to it.
