Tag: Time is precious

Does anyone else have a really poor attention span or is it just me? I’m blaming technology again…

I have a real problem with paying attention to a single task for any moderate length of time (let’s say 15 minutes or more). This hasn’t been an issue all my life, as far as I recall, though it certainly is now, and I place the blame firmly at the feet of modern technology… There …

Is technology really detrimental to our relationships? Why I’m saying yes…

I’ve written about this before but was reminded of it whilst listening to a recent podcast. Dr Rangan Chatterjee’s Feel Better, Live More podcast comes highly recommended. It is the #1 health podcast in the UK and Europe and aims to simplify the subject of health. The podcast episodes feature interviews with leading health experts …

The Power of 10 and why it could be a real game changer for you

I was off work last week and spent much of that time decorating. I didn’t cross much else off my to-do list which, as per, is hugely frustrating for me. Yet another instance of grand plans which ultimately fell by the wayside. One thing I did manage to do though, other than touching up paintwork …

Things that make me feel better

I wrote last week about figuring out what makes you feel better and doing more of it ( link here ). That post focused on Christmas and, in particular, starting to get into the festive spirit whenever you like, though writing it got me thinking about other things in life which make me feel better. …

There will never be a perfect moment so just get started

Have you ever put off something you know you need to do and tried justifying it by telling yourself there will soon be a better time to start? Some examples which may strike a chord are: I’ll mow the lawn tomorrow if we have another dry day – it might still be a bit damp …

Cherish every minute, especially if you have kids…

Earlier this year, I wrote about time moving too fast ( you can find that post here ) and that was really emphasised to me earlier this week. A Facebook reminder popped up from 4 years ago, showing pictures of my daughter and I goofing about on a shopping trip. She was trying on shades …

Do you know your parents as well as you think? If not, find out more…

This week’s blog topic was inspired by this Instagram post which Brian May shared on Mother’s Day: I’m not being biased due to Brian being my guitar hero, but these are really wise words. I like to think I know my mum and dad really well but I don’t know much about their childhoods other …

If you spend time with me, you may begin believing in yourself…

I try not to live a life filled with regrets. For me, it is much better to look forward and consider how life can be improved rather than wallowing in past mistakes. If I did this, I may rue missed opportunities and think too much about how a lack of confidence has, at times, seen …

Time moves too fast. Don’t wait to do things – start now.

I’ve previously written about aging and how much time we have in our lives and I’ve been thinking about that again recently, not least because yet another year has passed and we’re already, seemingly in the blink of an eye, 1 month into 2021. Time cannot possibly go by any quicker the older we get …

Mortality and me – why I’ve been thinking of how much time I have left…

Well isn’t this just the cheeriest of blog titles to ease you into those final few hours of the weekend?! Don’t worry though – this post isn’t as morbid as the title suggests. It’s actually more of a call to arms, though I have been thinking over recent weeks and months about just how much …
