So, here’s excerpts of the recent post from Instagram.
In an article published by The World Tribune last January, World Peace Buddhist Leader, SGI President Ikeda shared some profound words of wisdom on “time management” and faith. The article was titled…
“How to Master Time: It Starts with transforming our mindset to create the most value at each moment.”

My first inclination is to think about work and how I’m already a rockstar at making things happen. However, after putting my phone down for a sec 🤓 to really think, I realized I hadn’t considered my private life.
Here is where I’ve landed: relationally, if I want friendships, family and community connections to strengthen, I need to create time and set intentions.
…”Im already a rockstar…” 😂 And is that a nerd emoticon??? 😂 Good ones. But you’re on to something — the intentions definitely need to be set and the time. And most of all, the actions that reflect those intentions have to be very clear and easy to implement to get started. That’s where the blueprint planner (not to be confused with the playbook) comes in for planning for those times to act. Lookinh forward to hearing your success story. Cheers!
