The Big Clock:
Father T's Discreet "Weapon"

And that Clock never takes a break, either: 24/7, it's just tick, tick, tick. Which means that, however gifted and cool you may be in however many ways, with every day that passes you have less time to go after any goals/dreams that beckon. You also have less time to deal with any serious business still undone. So, we're talking about significant stuff here.

Smacking That Big Clock Right Down

Fortunately, you have a powerful option yourself, which is this: for anything you want or need to address, you can remember to always, always factor the passage of time into your calculations. Although simple and self-evident, that single action can also be critical to your success...because the clock doesn't sleep, period.

If you lose sight of that "truth," you may also lose the desired goal. And if it was something you genuinely wanted or needed, such a loss will not feel good. (Guess how I know this.) Moreover, if you're working through a spousal or parental death, for example, or a divorce or sudden income decrease/loss, spending time unproductively could actually cost you money. Speaking of double-whammys...

  Just Do It

What we all would do well to remember is that time, once spent, never returns. When it's gone, it is gone for good whatever your age and however you may have spent that time. So, when you want or need to accomplish something, forget waiting for the "ducks" to line up just right. Forget scanning the skies and tapping your foot; just get started with a duck you've already got!

Whether you need/want to sort out a legal or accounting issue, deal with your garage or storage unit, undertake a personal quest (perhaps even a daunting one), or do something Fun, start today with a single step. Then, take another and another until the issue is resolved and/or prize is yours. Although neither sexy nor rocket science, such steps work for a lot of people. You might be one of those yourself.

  Keep on Truckin'

And if Life slaps you upside the head really hard while you're working through your steps or even just minding your own business? First, pay attention to (and trust) the experience, wisdom, and discernment that make you the person you are. Let those guide you through the rough spots. Remember, too, that you probably don't have to sort out the issue all at once, and you also may not have to deal with it all alone unless you choose to do so.

But enough about Life's hard stuff: you can handle whatever thrusts itself into your life when/if it happens. Right now, you and your duck could be working on things you choose Yourself. Why not seize your moment while it's right in front of you and stick it to the Big Clock at the same time? Just do it, kiddo!
