We all have limited resources, limited time and limited bandwidth. Our time is simply our greatest asset and making good use of that time (for whatever purpose you chose) is something many of us find very difficult. “There isn’t enough hours in the day”, something I hear regularly and have told myself also many a time.

My pain stops me from going to the gym. I used to be able to play football with the kids but can’t anymore because I know it will hurt my back. I had to can’t run anymore because it was causing more damage. I have been told that rest is best for me. Don’t want to keep irritating it. It’s just going to get worse over time. Sound like anyone you know?
