How you understand time determines your destiny? by Enzo Calamo
Your time is your greatest asset! Whatever your age, you ONLY have a limited number of Birthdays, Christmas Holidays, and weekends. Furthermore, for Baby Boomers, most of these special days are in the past rather than in front of them. The biggest challenge that I encounter when talking with people is that they understand this concept of limited time but they only view time as linear. Linear time starts at birth and ends at death. Throughout history, time only keeps moving forward. As a result, for the majority of people, memories and regrets are located in the past while hopes and dreams are for the future.
However, linear time is just one form of time. There are several other ways to view time which are much more beneficial and productive for your life. The following are just a few examples:
All that anyone can count upon is the current moment. Therefore, a better view of time management is non-linear. Either you DO something NOW or not! If you do not do something now, then you will NEVER do it, you must DELEGATE it to someone else to do it now, or you SCHEDULE the action for a future time. Furthermore, with the advances in technology today, you may be able to delegate your task to a system or process that will accomplish your objectives simultaneously as you do something else.
All of us are aware of the four seasons in the year but we ignore the life cycles in our lives. Just because something in your life is going well or not, it does not mean that it will continue the same way forever (this is a linear thought mentality).
By aligning your time, talents, and treasures to accomplish your life purposes, there is the ability to leverage your time to accomplish multiple goals at the same time. For example, if you use your money to bring in a housecleaner on the weekend, you can spend your time to workout, shop, or to do some other important task in your life. For most wealthy families that I work with at Lugen Family Office, understanding how leveraged time works is by far their most important advantage over the average person.
I strongly recommend that you pay attention to how you view your time since your present choices are determining your destiny and your life story. As John Wooden said, “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?”
The Generational Leadership Gap
More than ever, long standing companies are being faced with the Generational Leadership Gap. The Baby Boomers that founded the company and have run it successfully for decades are having difficulty reaching the younger generations to continue their legacy. With over 10,000 Baby Boomers turning 65 every day in Canada, business leaders must be willing to change their communication styles and methodologies if their organizations are going to survive beyond them.

Before we look at the post-boomers, we need to know that the boomers will keep fundraisers busy at least three more decades. They are wealthier in total and per household than any previous generation and are just now coming into prime giving ages. For now and for several decades, these boomers will increasingly become the prime prospects for charitable giving (both inter vivos and testamentary). They will receive the greatest wealth transfer in history. But a substantially larger transfer wealth will be given by them than was given to them.
