“Time is something of which we ought to keep strict account.” – Seneca
We don’t know how much time any of us really have left but we do know exactly how much time we have left in a week, a month or even a year. If for example, we work an eight to five job Monday through Friday, from the moment we clock in at 8:00 am on Monday morning until quitting time at 5:00 pm on Friday afternoon, there are exactly six thousand three hundred minuted to go. Total. Including time to sleep, eat, shower, do personal care and family stuff. The whole show is 6,300 minutes long.
For some of us that might look like a countdown, for some of us that may look like a challenge and for some of us it is going to look like a finite supply of a resource which we need to use to get everything we want to accomplish accomplished.
We can’t make more minutes in a day, we can’t make more hours in a week, and we can’t make more days in a year. We only have so many hours to sell every year and what we choose to do with them is going to relate back directly to how far we are able to progress in anything during that time frame. If we spend those minutes wisely, we will travel quite a distance, if we waste hours on foolish things, we won’t. It’s that simple.
