Loved reading this post today from fellow blogger Michael Cerkas . . . This is a wonderful article about how we choose to focus on the priorities of our lives. Hope you’ll take the time to read it!

We’ve all heard it time and time again; “the time is right”, “time waits for no-one”, “there is always next time“, “no time like the present”, “have the time of your life”. Yet as much time as we all have, in the end, we’ve all had precious little time to really live. Doesn’t it go without saying, then, that we focus on making the most of the time each of us has; now?
As a writer, I am constantly inspired by the words of others and use those words to stimulate my own creativity, thoughts and ideas. I’d like to share a story with you today that stirs emotions, conjures thoughts of the future, perhaps even the past, while anchoring us in the present. It is an especially poignant story, considering the recent passing of Stephen Covey, the world-renowned author and motivational speaker. Among his precious gems of wisdom and insight, one stands atop my mountain. It is something he authored in 1994 and is called “The Big Rocks of Life”.
