“Time is priceless” My dad used to say.
Do you ever wonder to yourself how much time you’ll be spending on Earth before you die? No one knows the exact answer, which is the reason to why we have to make the best out of every single moment that God has given us to spend on Earth.
Whenever I imagine time, I visualise it as money. Spending time is like spending money. After you spend it, you can never gain it back. It’s gone. All you get out of it is what you have spent it on. What you have spent your money on is what you have bought. What you have spent your time on is what knowledge and experience you have gained. As you can see, the two are very much similar.
You can never own time. But you can use it. Look at it this way… we all have 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 4 weeks a month, and 12 months a year. Everyone uses their time differently, to make yours count, use it productively. Albert Einstein, Beyonce, Drake, Mother Teresa, everyone really… we all had 24s a day. It’s how these people used their time that made them later on matter in life.
One you lose your time, just remember, you can never gain it back. It’s one of those things where you can do but never redo. Wasting your time doing something that you know is useless and will not help you in the future would be truly sad. We have one life, lets try to make the most out of it.
You want to become a Doctor? Work hard in school and try your best. You want to become an NBA player, work hard and practice. You want to become a Youtuber? make friends and promote your channel, don’t listen to haters, and be creative. You want to build a family? Find the right person and get married. But if you think you can just sit on your couch and eat all day for the rest of your life then that’s one person who could have changed the world gone into trash.
be serious and wise about what and who you waste your time on… because time is free, but it’s priceless
