I believe time is the most valuable commodity in the world. More valuable than money, gold, love or anything else that people often want more of.
You can always make more money. You’ll never run out of love to give. Cars, houses, travel – you can always replace those things.
But not time.
Once time is gone, it’s gone – there’s no getting it back. You’ll likely have more of it, but you never really know just how much. I’m sure you’ve heard it said that when you’re on your deathbed, it’s highly unlikely you’ll wish you had made more money. Chances are, you’ll wish you had more time or that you’d spent the time you did have more wisely.
Are you spending time on something that you don’t enjoy, or that’s taking time away from something even more important? If so, maybe it’s time to reconsider that.
Start with baby steps. Set aside an hour sometime in the next week to do what you want to do – something that will make you happier and more fulfilled. And when you’re doing that thing, don’t worry about all the stuff you’re not doing for that hour. Just enjoy the time you have.
You might just decide you should be doing more of that and less of some of the other stuff…
