A Day is a Mini Lifetime

A Day is a Mini Lifetime – Zig Ziglar

The time you spend in a day is a microcosm of how you spend your life. Work is important and valuable, but is that how you want to spend your life? Even worse, is the time you (and I) spend on social media, watching TV, or distracting ourselves paying dividends?

When I look at the important things in my life, they fall under three categories:

  1. Faith
  2. Family and Friends
  3. Purpose

Everything else comes below those. At times I’ll certainly need to do things with my time that aren’t in those categories. But when I’m tempted to leisure, it’s easy to ask, “Does this benefit my faith, my family and friends, or my purpose?” If not, maybe try doing something else. The way we spend our days is the way we spend our lives.
