This Month’s Featured Article: Do Time, Don’t Let it Do You “We all have the same amount of time. You have the same amount of time as the average billionaire. It’s not how much time you have, it’s how you use the time you have.” Larry Winget To realize the value of one year, ask the student who has failed his final exam To realize the value of one month, ask the mother who has given birth to a premature baby. To realize the value of one week, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper. To realize the value of one day, ask the daily wage laborer with ten kids to feed. To realize the value of one hour, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet. To realize the value of one minute, ask the person who has missed the plane. To realize the value of one second, ask the person who has survived an accident. To realize the value of a millisecond, ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympics. To realize the value of time, in any increment, ask the person who spent 12.5 years as a slave to drugs, followed by 7.5 years as an incarcerated felon. Time is our most valuable commodity bar none. It is, hands down, the most precious thing we have, yet it is the one thing with which we are most often wasteful. You can’t recycle it, regain it, rejuvenate it, rediscover it, or reuse it. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. Now, I’m not saying we shouldn’t have relaxation time, hobby time, lay on the couch and read a book time, or sit in the sun and do absolutely nothing time. It’s all about balance in our lives. What I’m saying is that you need to respect and cherish it as you would any precious gift and realize that every moment that you spend serving dead time is wasted. Earlier I told you about my history with my ex-wife. Trust me, we had our fair share of differences over the years as many couples no longer together
