Lend your ears
While talking is essential it is more important to listen to what other people have to say. You grow more by listening to others than by talking. Take in ideas and opinions expressed by others. It widens your perspective and gives you a new angle to analyze things. Keep your ears and mind always wide open for anything new. When you are consciously listening you will be surprised to see how much knowledge you can gain by just paying attention to the seemingly unimportant chatter of your colleagues , friends or family.
So finally if you are able to spend your time well, you will truly have the best in life. The only thing that distinguishes the average person from the best is how he spends his time. Try to consciously spend your time doing things which are useful and instrumental in helping you achieve your long term goals. Once the heavy work is done you will be left with plenty of time to do things you like.  There is a saying which goes ” Do the difficult tasks first.  Leave the pleasurable one’s for later times.” So lets take an effort to finish all our uninteresting tasks quickly and  spend time doing things which will remain forever in our minds as memories.
