There is only one thing in our life we can’t reacquire once it’s gone.  It isn’t money, friendships or material items, I am talking about Time.  It’s a unique concept because when utilized correctly it can lead to success, happiness, growth – all the things we want.  But at the same time, if neglected it leaves us with very little.

Point is, no moment is more important or more perfect than right now.  Not in a week, not after whatever you are waiting for, not in 30 years when you are retired.  It’s right now.  Key is allocating your precious time to the activities that make today powerful.  Make today the day you take the first step toward the things you want and to be the man you want to be.

Nitro led us out in prayer

WIT!
