Spending Your Time

Time is a commodity, it is our most precious resource. You have a limited amount and you’re not getting any more of it. Be frugal with it, not frivolous. Spend your time doing things that are important to you and you enjoy doing.

You can’t get your time back once you spend it. Never waste time. That is the worst thing you could do to yourself. It is something you’ll regret later on. Nobody has extra time to pass or waste. You might as well enjoy it rather than spending your life passing time. Life is too short to waste.

Free your time:

You shouldn’t have to fight others for YOUR time. All 24 hours are yours. You decide how you spend it. Don’t let others decide for you. They will take all of your time, leaving none for you. Make sure you schedule some time for yourself each day, no exceptions. Living without taking time for yourself is like working without taking breaks: it’s not fun, it’s not productive or efficient, and you’ll burn out if you try it for very long.

Say “No” once in a while. Take your time back. Say “no” to others and “yes” to yourself. Don’t feel guilty or selfish; it’s your time and you deserve it more than anybody else. You should never be too busy to take time for you. Focus on making your life less busy and having more time for yourself. Don’t cheat yourself. Living without time for yourself isn’t living.

What matters is how you use what time you have. Your time is your life. Start living. Don’t wait for a better time. Make time now; you won’t regret it.

Time usage is really important. It’s like the old “How would you like your epitaph to read?” question. Even though I’m reevaluating large portions of my life right now, Franklin-Covy has stayed with me to force my time to be more than just work and watching tv.
