The Most Powerful Time Management Tool You Will Ever Need!



The most powerful time management tool you will ever need!

Life is short.

Each moment is precious.

When it’s gone it’s gone.

You can make your money back. You can buy material possessions.

But not  your time.

How do you want to live each moment?

This really hit me many years ago as I sat in the back of an Indian taxi speeding down a country road in the Andhra Pradesh wilderness, at close to 115 mph. As I dozed off waiting to arrive at my destination, I looked up only to see a huge truck the size of a whale heading straight into our taxi.

This was not good.

In a matter of seconds everything turned slow motion, and I had one of those moments you hear so much about. My entire life flashed in front of me, including the images of those I loved,  and the regrets I had sat in my heart like a heavy weight.

I was sure I was going to die.  My destiny seemed certain.

I had often wondered how I would face death when that moment actually came. My moment had come. I closed my eyes, and strangely felt a deep calmness realizing there was nothing more I could do in that moment. I had lived a good life.

I prepared myself to meet my maker.

Then all of a sudden I felt the car spin around full circle and come to a screeching halt. Boom. I opened my eyes, and in a dazed state I was quite surprised to still be alive.

My life was never the same after that. It was like going through a death and the surrender that comes with it, only to find myself still alive.

We are all going to die.  You, me, Gandhi, Sai Baba, Mother Teresa, Hitler, Michael Jackson, Bruce Lee, your loved ones. All of us.

This is the bottom line. No one makes it out of this life alive.

The real question becomes “How are you going to live each moment of your life so that when that moment comes you will be ready with no regrets?”

Yet we often waste time on things that aren’t that important.

When you embrace death you embrace life. You embrace each moment as a precious opportunity to live fully and share your gifts with the world.

When you realize and fully accept that you will die, then you no longer waste time on trivial matters. For each second wasted is a piece of life that is forever gone. Each second becomes more precious than gold. It frees you up to get on with living your life in a way that you have no regrets.

When that moment comes in your life, much of what you stressed about, worried about, fretted about, screamed about, argued about, gossiped about, cried about, fought about, controlled about won’t really matter.

When that moment comes what will matter will be “Did you love those in your life as fully as possible? Did you give your gifts as deeply as possible? Did you become the most authentic expression of who you were meant to be in this life?”

If you find yourself wasting time, being unproductive, or unsure how to allocate your time, ask yourself, “Is this how I would like to die?”

And if not, then rearrange your time, your activities, your relationships, your state of mind and emotions in such a way that you can say “Yes” no matter when that moment arrives.

The time is truly now.



Love. Now.


P.S. I would love to hear your thoughts as to what is most meaningful to you in life!!!

    I needed this today. My biggest fear is public speaking. I decided that I would attend toastmasters to try to break my fears. The meeting is this morning and I was going to back out as I have been fretting over it all morning. I am going…….

    God is meaningful to me.
    But also, every person I meet is meaningful to me in life, every thing shared with me is meaningful to me as well, like this post.Every thing that people give, every gift that people share with the world matter as much as what I give to the world, what gift I share with the world and that makes it possible for ever person to receive in life.
    So yes, all people are most meaningful to me in life.

    Greetings of peace

  • I believe that the most powerful technique in order to manage time effectively is with self discipline. It allows you to stay focus on tasks, limit wasted time, ignore work distractions and get things done.  Another great way to do is to track time where exactly time is spent and how much time is spent, which allow you to eliminate less productive activities and improve productivity. It is what I do to manage time with the help of a time tracking tool, Time Doctor. With the right online tools and self discipline I am more productive this way.

    Time management carries the utmost importance when there is a proper track of the said time. What will happen if we need to fix up the time tracking, then the management of the same goes in a smooth process.

    I work for a share investment company and for us time keeps the most valuable importance. Relatively we have been managed to keep good track of our time with quickbooks time tracking software from Replicon ( ) and hence we know the better management of the same. But when I landed on this post and going through the video as such I can track the difference and got a new idea to track and manage the time.

    Inspiring blog post this one is.
