Depending on what you have going on in life, quiet time is an extremely valuable commodity. Trust me, it’s worth more to me than money in some instances.

The value of quiet time is immeasurable. The obvious reason for this is because we all enjoy some time to ourselves.

Those moments where no one else is around. For me, the majority of my alone time is early in the mornings when the kids are asleep and no electronics are on.

It’s glorious actually.

The quiet is truly peaceful. And yes, there are times when I simply sit and stare at the wall.

But taking advantage of the quiet moments is what separates mediocre from success. Instead of simply drifting through the moments of quiet, leaders use these minutes to grow.

Take Advantage of Quiet Time

What causes stress in our lives? Besides people and money, it’s the need to get things done. To pursue the things we truly want to do.

Now some of you may be doing work that is your passion, so kudos to you. But for many, that isn’t the case and that’s fine. Bills need to be paid.
