King Solomon, the wisest of men, teaches us that there are some things in life that can never be corrected (see Ecclesiastes 1:15). One of those things is lost time. There is no replacement for a squandered moment...
Time utilization is the key to maximizing your personal potential. Don't you hate looking at the clock, only to discover that half the day is over and you've yet to accomplish anything? There are few worse feelings in life. Wouldn't you like to get more out of yourself, your day and your entire life?
If your answer is yes, and if you value your own time, then by all means see my feature article in this week's new issue of Breslev Israel web magazine, Peak Productivity in Five. You'll be glad you did.

ROSH HASHANAH IS ONLY 2 SHORT WEEKS AWAY - DON'T FORGET PIDYON NEFESH
Pidyon Nefesh is a very special and powerful prayer and blessing that has the spiritual strength of a sacrifice in the Bet Hamikdash to atone for sin and to mitigate severe judgments. The bigger and more pious the tzaddik, the more effective the "pidyon", which literally means "redemption", where one's money is literally a sacrifice for one's body and soul. The pidyon money "redeems" the nefesh, or soul, in other words, "Pidyon Nefesh." This is used when a major salvation is needed, such as in the case of a dangerous illness, a severe court case, or as a rescue from trouble or danger. Rebbe Nachman of Breslev says that Pidyon Nefesh is the "sweetening", or mitigation of harsh decrees and serves as a salvation from any trouble, for the main cure and solution of sickness is the pidyon (see Likutei Moharan II:3).
We strongly recommend sending a A Pidyon Nefesh to Rav Shalom Arush via Emuna Outreach, who'll pray for you in Uman on Erev Rosh Hashana.
