The truest currency of human life is time. How we’ll spend it is the single greatest decision facing us every day. And even though it is all around, it still gets away from us.
Today’s digital age promises us optimisation and perfect engineering for the sake of saving time.
But instead of saving us anything, it distracts us from the people, communities and experiences in our lives that mean the most.
Surely, such a definitive aspect of our lives deserves more consideration. The truth of the matter is that time is passing, and we have a choice. To simply watch the minutes tick by or be aware of their meaning.
Because the things we spend our time on shape us into the people that we are.
The people that we look up to are masters of this. They don’t waste time on trivial matters, they’re big-picture thinkers, more focused on spending their time in ways that can build them up as a person.
This is what happens when we think about time as more than a simple metric or a way to mark progression. It becomes a daily opportunity to develop your character.
Whether it’s meeting new people, reading a novel, learning a language or practicing a craft.
These experiences and aspirations are the irreplaceable building blocks of our identities — the long-lasting traits with which we navigate the world.
At the end of the day, who we are and who we work to become is a product of the hours gone-by, seized or unseized. So, don’t underestimate the power of time.
How we spend it speaks volumes.
TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE.
SPEND IT WISELY.
