“One of the difficulties we face in our industrialized age is the fact we’ve lost our sense of seasons. Unlike the farmer whose priorities change with the season, we have become impervious to the natural rhythm of life. As a result, we have our priorities out of balance. Let me illustrate what I mean:
There is a lesson. Learn to use the seasons of life. Decide when to pour it on and when to ease back, when to take advantage and when to let things ride. It’s easy to keep going from nine to five year in and year out and lose a natural sense of priorities and cycles. Don’t let one year blend into another in a seemingly endless parade of tasks and responsibilities. Keep your eye on your own seasons, lest you lose sight of value and substance.” – Jim Rohn
As you move along the time line of life know your priorities and your seasons. Spring can come many times in a life time as can summer, fall and winter. Know where you are at and adjust accordingly. If we choose to give our life to one thing, very often our work, we get to experience a splinter off the block of wood that is life and no more. This is sad. There is so much to the experience that is life.
Know your seasons. Know your priorities. Time is the only thing we can spend and never get back. Life isn’t a practice session. There are no do overs. But the good news is that you can always start over.
