Time is the only truly limited resource there is. It is also in very high demand. Put these two things together, and you have the most valuable resource in existence. More than money. More than diamonds. More than any other thing on this planet.
Just think about it. Other resources can be accumulated or saved for a rainy day. You can trade them. You can bargain and negotiate for them. Most other resources can be reproduced, even if it takes a long time. Except for time. There is no way to buy more of it. You cannot trade for it. You cannot sell it.
There is no way to gain more of it. Each person is given the exact same 24 hours each day until you no longer exist to receive it. It doesn’t matter your sex, gender, race, age, or socioeconomic status. In that way, it is the great equalizer. We all have the same amount. If it is such a valuable resource, why are we so sloppy with it? Why do we give such little attention to how we spend or invest it?
For most of us just, we just live within time but have no control over it. We use our time to put out fire after fire but rarely use it to prevent them. We spend time jumping from one thing to the next, scattered and chaotic. We “give it away” to anyone who asks or demands it, rarely considering if that is how we WANT to use it. We try and squeeze out every last minute of the day to meet our present needs, without giving much intentional thought to how to invest in our future selves. We spend a lot of time in indecision and regret. Stress and overwhelm. And we do it all over again the next day. The result? We waste a lot of the time we DO have, and the experience of that time is really unpleasant.
So why do we do that? Well, maybe because that is what we see modeled for us by all the other people around us. Maybe that is because we are not taught how to use our time efficiently.
Maybe because we just think this is the way it is. We don’t know if there is another way. Well, I am here to tell you there is another way. And each week this month, I will be giving you tools to help to make better decisions on how to spend your time the way you WANT. Every day that you wake up, is a gift to you. It is yours. You get to spend it the way you choose. Are you ready? Let’s do this!
