In his wonderful tale, The Little Prince (de Saint-Exupéry, 1943/2000), Saint-Exupéry’s central character observed that the most important things in life are those we cannot see.

Active people and high achievers in sport, exercise, the performing arts, and elsewhere recognize the usefulness of taking advantage of the limited time we have on the planet. They find ways to accomplish the things that are meaningful to them and those that are not so significant. Many, however, do not take advantage of the time they have to live fully. How can we best use our time to make the most of our lives?
