Our greatest asset, our greatest weakness, our greatest opportunity.
It's the greatest resource we have, and yet we never seem to have enough of it. We always want more. But in truth, we all have the same amount of it, each and every day. Each day we have 24 hours, or 1440 minutes, or 86400 seconds to choose to spend the way we decide.
How do we find the time to do everything that we want in a day? But the fact is - there isn't always time for everything. Each day it's all about choices or preferences on how we choose to spend our precious and most valuable resource. It's the resource which is the most valuable currency we can spend; and we control how we decide to spend it. We're all rich in time, but all decide to spend it differently.
We spend it working a job, with family or friends, or perhaps committed to a hobby or interest. Hindsight may show you it was the best use of time, or the worst choice for it; but it's a decision we make on how we choose to spend it. We've all made the statement, "I wish I had the time" or "I just don't have the time." But we all really do. It comes down to how we want to spend this resource - what we deem to be the most important to us.
Sometimes to gain more time for one new passion, you have to give up on sacrifice some time that you've previously allotted to another. This could be cutting out screen time from television, movies, or video games; and using this extra resource to chase a new dream. While cutting out something that is only an hour or two a day, this could add up to be something significant long term with repetition and practice. This doesn't mean that screen time needs to be cut out completely, but it's important to find the time for a new passion or obsession.
While some person or activity may have occupied our time in the past, this doesn't mean that it has been earned this space for the future. We have the opportunity to make changes all of the time to our life; and eliminate a part of our past we are not satisfied with.
We can use this resource for things like starting a new hobby, learning a new language, playing a new sport, reading a new book, or developing a new skill. I'm working to change parts of my life, to delegate more of my efforts to things that I have neglected more often than I would like.
In 2019, this is changing. How we decide to use our time is where it all counts...one second at a time.
