Meaning is often found in the margins.

Meaning is often found in the margins.

There’s a misconception about greatness, that great people are busy people. And it’s easy to see how this misconception evolved - people who do great things are often hard to reach. But the reason is not what you might think. It’s not because they do too much, it’s because they guard their time religiously.

The thing keeping you from a meaningful life is not lack of commitment but over commitment. Often, purpose, clarity and fulfillment are found in the margins of your life. Not when you’re bogged down with a full schedule or an ever-growing to-do list but when you have time to breathe deeply and rest, to be present with the people you love and to enjoy and be grateful for what you have and where you are.

Leadership coach, Craig Groeschel says,

Wise time management doesn’t mean doing more, but more of what matters most.

A common excuse that a lot of people honestly believe about themselves is simply, "I don't have time." We've all heard it. We've all said it. But in reality, we all have time for the things we choose to have time for. It's a matter of priorities.

We believe in making time for the things that matter.

Are you letting the urgent things crowd out the important things? To help you self-assess, ask yourself these questions:

  1. What are you spending your time on that doesn’t matter?
  2. What do you value that you feel like you don’t have time for?
  3. What seemingly urgent thing on your to-do list isn’t actually important?

Time is a precious resource and if you’re not spending it on the things that matter most, you’re squandering it on the things that don’t. Stay tuned - In our next article, we’re going to walk you through a powerful framework to help you reprioritize your commitments and make space for the things that matter in your life.

The Origin Story

From the very first time I started pitching Block, I have always said that we’d give a portion of our revenue back to underserved areas to see them revitalized for the community and I don’t have any plans to change that. That’s why every time you get your yard mowed with Block, we set aside a small portion to give back. To restore value. To restore dignity.
