Aug. 3, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Today’s Gift from Hazelden

Monday, Aug. 3, 2015

Today’s thought from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

Successful Living

A speaker told us one day that people who can’t manage their time also have difficulty handling their money. We have even heard that “time is money.”

Without becoming misers or scrooges, we have a responsibility to use time wisely – other people’s time as well as our own. Many people who believe they are moral and upright are so careless about keeping appointments and dates that they force others to wait. This is essentially stealing another’s time.

Being prompt and managing all of our time well is part of mature living. It’s part of being a responsible, grown-up, caring person. If we’ve been guilty of poor management of our own time, we’ve probably been wasting other people’s time as well.

I’ll be careful and prompt in all appointments today. I’ll not waste others’ time by being late.
