Know Your Value
Making the best use of your time sometimes has to do with knowing your value. Every day we have to make decisions on how we spend our time. Many times we will spend hours on things of little importance or value or even lacking in fun or entertainment. Why? Because we don’t think about the value of our time.
Your Time IS Truly Invaluable
When you think about it—your time is invaluable. You can’t buy more timer, per se. You can pay someone else to do something that would otherwise take your time. But, you can’t go back in time and get the wasted time back for anything…the argument with your friend/lover/child that should of never happened and you know you need to get over anyway, the driver that cut you off and almost caused an accident that you talked about for weeks, the time spent sitting on a couch looking at a square that shows you other people’s lives (TV)…none of it.
Life Is About Decisions
Obviously we are not going to make 100% use of every minute of every day. We need to have fun time, personal time, fitness time, relationship time, work time, living life time…but if we thought about time as the irreplaceable commodity that it is every minute of every day, we would definitely use our time as wisely as possible. So while we can’t think this way 100% of the time perhaps we could think about it a little more often.
