Time, as the saying goes, is priceless.


Surely everyone here wishes they had more time. time for family and friends. It’s time to put an issue to rest.

The three essentials of life are eating, praying, and loving. It’s time to get in shape. Now is the time to see every continent.

It is now time to complete the task. It’s time to sign up for that scuba lesson, yoga session, or personal development workshop. It’s time for a visit with the old folks. It’s time for a visit with an old friend.

It is time to help the needy. Now I can catch up on the news. Put your skills to the test now. It’s time to sit quietly and reflect. Now is a good time to help others.

It’s time to lend an ear to a buddy in need. It’s time for a romantic meal. It’s time to get the family together for supper.

It’s time to take risks, to go parachuting, to meditate, to play, to connect with one’s inner voice, to prepare nourishing meals, to do nothing, and to do everything.

It’s time to experience your true emotions. Let yourself daydream and just be.

I’ve wasted a lot of time being foolish and making errors, that much is certain. Still, I’ve picked up some useful information along the way. That fact alone demonstrates that it wasn’t completely incorrect.

The little amount of time I had also occupied a lot of my thoughts. If all it does is stress you out, it’s not really helpful.

But if it motivates you to take responsibility and map out a strategy for achieving all your lofty ambitions, then that’s a good thing. I keep trying, failing, and succeeding. Experiencing a “time loss” as a result.

This temporal comparison was made in a book I read. Let’s pretend there’s a bank that consistently puts $86,400 in your account first thing in the morning.

And it keeps happening every single day. The one exception is that you won’t be able to put away that specific deposit until the following day.

Your $86,400 paycheck will be gone before the end of the day. Nothing may be used in advance, and no stockpiling is allowed.

Would you do this? Would you give daily usage considerable consideration?

The trouble is, we all have access to this account, except for the time portion. There are 86,400 seconds in a day, and once they’re gone, that’s it.

Is it stressful only to consider it? Do you sense time passing by in a blur? The time will pass in a flash, anyhow.

Imagine having this time-deposit account and thinking about it every day. Does it cause you to reevaluate your lifestyle choices?
