The average person spends:
100 hours a year commuting to work, compared to 80 hours of vacation time.
91 hours a week at work for dual-career couples with kids under 18.
1.8 hours a day doing household activities.
2.6 hours a day watching TV.
8.6 hours a day sleeping.
Time is a non-renewable resource. Once it’s used up, you can’t get it back.
TAKE ACTION TODAY
Stop and think … then make a list of What Matters Most to you.
Take the What Matters Most Urgency Analysis.
Create a list of how you currently spend your time each week.
Organize your list of weekly activities and identify activities that are required and those that are optional or waste time.
Take steps to rearrange your schedule or reduce the optional activities so you can spend time doing What Matters Most.
Don’t waste time.
What really matters most to you? Your relationships with family, friends, and children? Helping others? Passions? Faith? Security? Health? At the end of each year, don’t you want to look back and see that you made a difference? That you matter? Today is the start of a new year. Start it off by making a difference in you, your life, and the lives of those you love. This is your opportunity. Time spent on What Matters Most is never wasted time.
“We believe that what matters most is not narrow appeals masquerading as values, but the shared values that show the true face of America; not narrow values that divide us, but the shared values that unite us: family, faith, hard work, opportunity and responsibility for all, so that every child, every adult, every parent, every worker in America has an equal shot at living up to their God-given potential. That is the American dream and the American value.” ~ Senator John Kerry
What is the Every Monday Matters program?
Monday used to be the least favorite day of the week, but that is changing. EMM is based on the idea that every Monday people can make a difference in their life and the lives of those around them. No matter how big or small the actions, they matter. And not only do people have the power to make change, they have a social responsibility to do so. Not out of guilt, but out of an appreciation for every living thing in the world. Together, each person can make a difference in the world and raise the collective consciousness, thereby creating a legacy worth participating in…one Monday at a time.
