Time IS on our side, when we invest our time wisely.
Newton’s third law says, “For everything there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Let me again, take a twist.
Time is NOT on our side. When we waste our time and squander our time we can not get that time back. It is gone, gone, gone.
I will bravely and boldly say that never in the history of humanity have we had more distractions and more opportunities to simply waste our time.
We often cry we wish we had more time. But, do we really need more time or do we just need to spend that time with greater intention and focus?
I don’t have time to_______.
You fill in the blank.
Here’s a sobering statistic.
According to the A.C. Nielsen Co., the average American watches more than 4 hours of TV each day (or 28 hours/week, or 2 months of nonstop TV–watching per year). In a 65-year life, that person will have spent 9 years glued to the tube.
And that is just TV. 28 hours per week. 28.
Let’s put more time ON our side. What about exchanging just 30 minutes/5 days per week from our various “screens” and putting that time towards something that we falsely don’t believe we have time for?
Yes, time IS on our side when we redirect it towards the important and don’t let it just slip through our proverbial hands.
