It isn’t money.
It isn’t your knowledge or experience.
It isn’t luck.
It’s your TIME.
Nothing is more important because it is the one thing that you can’t replenish. Once it is gone, there is nothing you can do to get it back and you can’t magically create more of it. We’re all given 24 hours a day whether you are Mark Zuckerberg or the homeless person in the park. It’s all the same resource and amount given to each of us.
So that makes managing your time and being aware of how you spend your time, one of the most important things you can do.
“If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of.” ~Bruce Lee
I think it would be interesting if there was some physical measurement we could use for time, like how we handle cash for money or when you see a bank or credit card statement. Wouldn’t it be interesting if at the end of each month you had an accounting of how many hours you spent and where?
I think for me and for most people, we have no idea how much time we really do spend on our cell phones, watching tv or on the internet.
I’ve seen so many times people on Facebook complaining that they don’t have time to <insert self-care, learn something, make something, or do just about anything> because they don’t have time. YET, they are posting on Facebook.
That’s why I’m trying an experiment of using a time log. It’s nothing fancy, just an accounting hour by hour of how I spend my day. I’m both fascinated and little scared of what I will find out. Do you want to try it with me? Let me know how it goes for you on Facebook, if you’ve got the time of course!
