You Cant Buy Time

Our daily lives are inundated with a crammed to-do list. We are often rushing throughout our day trying to keep up with ourselves. Although technology has improved and simplified our lives, we are as pressed for time as past generations. Often your day seems so full, and you are so pressed for time that it is impossible to get in all there is to do, and yet a little quiet thinking will show that the important things can be easily put into two thirds of the day, and the remaining third is free for rest, or play, or both. You can feel normally pressed for time; and because of this pressure you can arrange in your mind what best to leave undone, and so relieve the pressure. If one thing seems as important to do as another you can make up your mind that of course you can only do what you have time for, and the remainder must go. You cannot do what you have time to do so well if you are worrying about what you have no time for.

We hurry through life, slowing down just to consume our free time with television, the internet or magazines and newspapers. If you feel like life is passing you by and you do not have the time to do the things that bring you pleasure in life, then you need to examine what is holding you back from managing your time better. Is procrastination taking up most of your day?

Our supply of time is a daily miracle. You wake up in the morning, and your life is filled with twenty-four hours. No one can take it from you. No one receives either more or less than you receive. You alone decide how to spend your time. You can not get into debt of time, you can only waste the passing moment. No matter how you try to stretch it or change it, there will always be only 24 hours in a day. Time can not be hoarded. Before you can start to focus on how to get more out of your day, you need to be clear on how to use your time more efficiently. Your problem isn't "not enough time". It can't be, because all the time you experience is the time that you create. You create all the time that you experience.

When you feel that you do not have enough time, have a look at what is happening. Every second something big passes by: YOUR LIFE. Your happiness and fulfillment in life is determined by how quick you are to recognize the things you need to change, and how quick you are to act upon them. We worry more about how to make money instead of how to use our time wisely. Time is more valuable than money. Although money can buy you many things, it can not buy you more time.

Questions

What is your attitude towards the value of time?

In what areas of your life are you wasting time every day?

If you had less than 24 hours a day to do everything, what would you change or do differently?

Are you borrowing time from tomorrow by overextending yourself? In what areas of your life are you borrowing time from?

Do you feel that you are leaving something undone which you would like to do when you have "more time"?

If you're always in a hurry, or are feeling too much time pressure, what can you drop from your schedule?
