‘Time is money.’ How important is time to you?

By Zuko Komisa

The quest to have more time seems to be every person’s pursuit. We spend our days, get exhausted and sleep so we can relive the same day every day. The reality with time is that you can’t buy time, you can’t grow time, you can’t ask for more time, you can only lose time. The sad thing about losing time is that we have absolutely no idea how much time we have left.

Let’s talk about how important is time to you.

Do you get enough time sleep? Do spend enough time with your friends and family, do you make time to work on your dream, are you living or merely existing? How do you stop killing time so it doesn’t kill you? We have the power to make the best use of our time, use it to our advantage, but most of us opt for killing time. We don’t pay attention to how we are spending our time.

'Time is money.' How important is time to you?

Focus on what burns our hearts

What wakes you up in the morning, what is your WHY? Time is the most valuable resource we have, more valuable than money. You need to answer very important questions about who you are.  Let’s make an investment in time, these are the places you need to invest more of your time

Invest in Getting Ahead of Time

Start making a list of things that matter to you, things that you want to do that will set your heart on fire. You have got to start planning ahead. You need time to work for you and that doesn’t work if you don’t plan how you are going to spend it to the finest details. Your diligence in executing this list will result in a happier and successful life, this too knowing that you and the richest person on the planet have the same amount of hours in a day.

'Time is money.' How important is time to you?

Invest in More Life

Investing time in caring for your health while you proactively invest your time in your health by eating well, regularly seeing your doctors and exercising regularly, getting plenty of sleep, investing in feeding your mind with useful information for your emotional, mental and spiritual health.

Invest in “Recalibrating’ Time

Make time to recharge your batteries, be deliberate in making time to do absolutely nothing like the Italians say “La Dolce Far Niente,” the philosophy of “the sweetness of doing nothing.” Doing nothing time will help you slow down and experience a different pace of life, in which time’s value is not measured by its productivity but the joy of peaceful stillness.
