Carpe A.M. • Carpe P.M.

Seize Your Destiny!™


Selected stories…

Each day blesses you with 24 hours. That’s 1,440 minutes. No more. No less. Time is relentless. It can’t be replaced or reversed. Stopped. Stored. Or saved. Nor can you reach into your time reservoir to “borrow” an hour from yesterday…to use today.

Time is the essence of your life. If you waste your time, you waste your life. Don’t race compulsively or erratically to do more “stuff” in less time. Don’t become busier or more active. Instead, make better choices and wiser decisions. Then time becomes your ally, your valuable partner.

Don’t confuse activity with results. You’re rewarded for results.

Steal time from the insignificant. Then channel it and your energies toward the significant; your goal, objective or anticipated result.

On the “clock of life” or “watch of winners”…the key word is NOW!

Procrastination is your foe. Indecision an assassin. Plan tomorrow tonight.

Carpe a.m.!

Stay on track. Make every day count.

Carpe p.m.!

When you master your time, you seize your destiny!

When our son Chad was four, he wandered into our bedroom and said, “Mommy and Daddy, last night…I had pictures in my eyes!”

His statement made me realize—that as adults, we all too often take our lives too seriously. We’re hopelessly linked to the past and all too secure in the present.

We stop: Creating. Imagining. Dreaming.

Whether images of your future are in black and white or color, 3D or holograms…may you always have, “pictures in your eyes!”
