I am so excited to announce that my latest book officially launches on Amazon Kindle tomorrow, Tuesday, January 28th! It will be on free promotion until Friday, January 31st! A lot of work has gone into writing the book and getting the word out, but it has all been worth it because I am so passionate about sharing this message. I just wanted to give you another brief look into the book and a reminder about the launch.

Why kill yourself in your daily life?

Chapter 6 of my book discusses Time Killers. Here is an excerpt:

Analyze how you spend your time. Pin down the time killers you use to feel better, activities which don’t bring you closer to your purpose, but take up much of your time. Cut them ruthlessly from your life. As long as your yardstick is your purpose, it’s relatively easy to root out these worthless activities. Just replace them with something worth doing, something truly fulfilling. Killing time is suicide in installments.

Facebook, TV, celebrity gossip magazines, Candy Crush… We all have those to anaesthetize ourselves from the pressures of daily life.

Are you really going to look back on your life from your deathbed and see any value in these activities? What if you took even half the time spent on those activities each day, and applied them to your life’s purpose, your mission? Would you not likely find yourself more fulfilled, more alive?

How to live each moment

I know that as people we do need periods of mental rest in the midst of all the demands of daily life; we cannot expect to sustainably be “on” all the time. But, when you are working towards your personal mission, the allure of just “checking out” for 10 minutes or a few hours begins to diminish.

“Master Your Time in 10 Minutes a Day” discusses a number of strategies for creating downtime in your day that still moves you closer to your goals while reinvigorating your spirit and mind.

The choice is yours

I am in no way advocating that you eliminate fun from your life. By all means, continue to spend enjoyable leisure time with family, friends and peers. However, too many of us have built routines incorporating leisure activities that contribute nothing to our lives, to our purpose.

It is easy to get caught in the rut of using these activities as distractions and nothing more; leisure does not always equal fun or fulfilling.

What I do advocate is that you take a close look at these activities and ask yourself whether they exist to further your growth as a human being with much to give to the world, or do they exist simply as painkillers? When you have discovered your true purpose and decided to follow it, the painkillers become unnecessary.

Master Your Time in 10 Minutes a Day launches tomorrow!
