What is time?
Time is one of the most if not the most important and valuable resources that we have. At times it goes quickly and at other times it drags. When we are interested and involved there is not enough of it and when we are bored and under-stimulated there is just too much of it. It is up to us to use this resource as fully as possible. Our lives are the total of the time we have available to us.
The time we get is finite. We cannot buy more time. When our time is up, our time is up. We need to use our time in the best possible way.
Time is divided
Let’s look at time in more detail: days, weeks, months, years. Mornings, evenings, afternoons, weekends. Work days, holidays, school days. Waiting time, lunch time, dinner time, tea time. Time to get up and time to go to sleep.
There are the stages of life: babyhood, toddlerhood, childhood, teenager, adulthood and old age.
Time passes relentlessly in a fixed rhythm, defined by Man and marked out by Nature. 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day. Buckle up for another high speed dash around the Sun – another year whisks by!
Time is democratic
Once time has passed it never returns but it is the most democratic resource in the world. We all have 24 hours per day at our disposal. Every day, every week, every month, we all have the same amount of time to use but how we make use of this time varies from person to person. Our time is our life is the total of the time we have to use.
By thinking about what we want to do, how we are going to do it, where, when, how and why, we can make best use of our time, acquire skills and make our lives as rewarding as possible.
