If you had to show on a spread sheet how you spent your time, what would you consider now that you had not previously?
Would it affect your planning for this new week?
Would you re-consider the value of the coming days, the approaching moments?
The President of the United States has the same twenty four hour period to accomplish things as you do.
No one gets extra time for wise time management.
Warren Buffett has been quoted as saying, “I can buy pretty much anything I want…except one thing. I can’t buy time, so you better spend it wisely.”
Having always considered time valuable, as the years behind me increase, and the years ahead of me decrease, I have become even more sensitive to time and my planning of it.
I have read from ancient text that, “Our lives are like water that is poured out on the ground — it can’t be gathered up again.”
If our lives are in fact like water, how will you pour out your life this week, since it can not be gathered up again?
Will you spend eight hours working and three additional hours worrying? What if anything will be added to your life by worrying? Not one day.
Will you spend it embittered toward another person? One minute invested in bitterness is sixty seconds lost to happiness.
Literally, if you had to account for every second of the day, would you spend it differently, especially if your record of time spent was to be displayed on your Facebook page or other social networking platforms?
I would encourage you to take a pen and piece of paper and block out five minute increments for tomorrow and at the end of the day compare how you spent your time.
Time is opportunity and opportunity is the door that opens for you to be who you are created to be, a person with a compassionate heart with a passionate spirit, who makes the best use of the time they are given.
