The reality is we cannot hold back time or turn back time, but we can make better use of time. Everyone, rich or poor, young or old, has the same amount of time each day. We get to choose how to spend it.
Time management experts tell us to focus on priorities. If you don't know what's important, you can't spend time on important things.
To even get to that point, however, one needs to make the commitment to spend time -- alone!
It's hard to make adjustments in life if you're always making them on the run.
Stephen Covey talks about "sharpening the saw" in his Seven Habits of Highly Successful People. I would add that spending time alone is not just for planning, although that's part of it. It's not just goal setting, although that can be included. It's deep reflection on your life and how you spend your time.
You may not be able to turn back the clock, but I believe you can actually slow down the minutes and hours as you spend more time on the things that matter.
