"Time is free but it's priceless. You can't know it but you can use it. You can't keep it but you can spend it. Once you've lost it you can never get it back."
Sometimes I wish that time cost us something.
Even though this makes absolutely no sense, I wish it did for a variety of reasons.
Firstly I think I would value it more.
Secondly I think we would all be happier.
We would find the path of life easier to follow.
Let’s think about it for a second…
(no pun intended).
You receive a receipt for every transaction of life at the end of the day…
Everything is itemised.
…and so on.
What would it look like?
Would you be happy about your use of time?
Would you even want to know how you spent it?
What if it arrived at the letterbox like a standard bill does?
Would we even want to open that letter?
Would it pile up on a desk of unopened mail?
So many questions, so little space to attempt the daunting task of answering even a few of them.
I can get you to do this however; start recording how you spend your day.
Itemise them into books of hour intervals.
Start to take track of how you spend your time, down to the minute if you have to!
Because there is a consistent drain of time coming out of us, and it appears to cost us nothing, that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t record it.
How you spend your time will dictate how you spend your life.
Time is literally the greatest asset that you will ever own.
(read that a few times).
How much is it worth to you if you did own it?
When I first understood this concept it literally changed my life.
I hope it changes yours.
Spend it wisely.
Then you can subsequently live it well.
