‘Time is our most precious resource here on Earth.
Some of you may be able to make a compelling argument for the value of money, but time, unlike money, cannot be earned. We can eat healthy and live an active lifestyle, both of which should extend our chances of longevity, but it isn’t a guaranteed formula.
Not only could we do everything we’re supposed to and still fall short of the average human life expectancy — currently 79.28 in the United States — but we could also (knock on wood) be derailed by a tragic accident or some other unforeseen circumstance.
So going with the assumption that time is our most valuable resource, what is a statement we not only hear others, but also find ourselves, saying far too often? “I don’t have enough time.”
Whether it’s to justify not pursuing a particular goal, or it’s to try and weasel ourselves out of taking the blame for something we missed, we all regularly complain of being short of this oh-so-precious resource.
To find more time in our lives, we tend to practice one of two main tactics: multi-tasking and addition by subtraction.’
