Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.
How much is your time worth? Having been a consultant that charged by the hour, a project worker who has charged by the job completed, a teacher who was paid by the school year regardless of hours worked, and a waitress paid by the satisfaction of the customer, I know it can’t be measured in terms of the clock or financial compensation
We can measure it in terms of achievements or projects completed. Maybe we measure it in terms of time wasted or opportunities lost?
I’ve been thinking a lot about time lately and how much I have left. I’ve realized how much I want to do and also that if I live to be 150 I’d never have a chance to do it all. Therefore, I need to get busy loving, seeing, doing and experiencing.
For me, the true measure of the value of time will be how much joy was packed into every moment. How about you?
Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can’t buy more hours. Scientists can’t invent new minutes. And you can’t save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you’ve wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow. ~Denis Waitely
I love this. I have a funny relationship with time. I absolutely never feel like I have enough – I guess everyone has that, but I get anxious sometimes about how to best use it and not waste it and to make sure that I respect other people’s time and that other people respect mine…I need to relax my hold on this concept of the scarcity of time. Thanks for making me think!
Oh please let me know if you’re able to do that and tell me your secrets. We are in the same boat, my friend.
I thik we are not alone…:-)
And isn’t it amazing that on some days you feel as if you have managed to pack a whole lot in, achieved so much, and on others it seems you have done nothing at all; and yet looking back sometimes it is the latter days that one remembers.
Lately I feel that there is such an overwhelming amount of things I want to do I just don’t know how to get to it all. It’s more of a ‘life is so wonderful’ feeling and I want to experience it all rather than an overworked feeling I had most of my life. No complaints, just need to be around another 100 years! : )
