Time Mastery Talent – What is it?Many years ago Bill Paige, a noted teacher-coach, opened his presentation with the words, “God does not create junk!” He went on to elaborate – saying that all of us have been given gifts or talents that allow us to succeed, and whether we use them, or not, is up to us. Many authors and speakers have underlined that whether we succeed or not, is to a very large extent- our choice!
