Quote of the week 8: Do You Spend Your Time Wisely?

Do you have money to burn? Most people haven’t. They place a great value on it. But how do we value our time? We can let it slip away so easily, never to return.

Would you spend your hard-earned money on something you didn’t want? You didn’t need? You didn’t like? Something that meant nothing to you?

Did you answer “NO! Of course not. I’m not that stupid.”

Why would you be STUPID if you spent money that way?

Surely it’s because you don’t want to waste money. Why not? Because money has a value. A great value. It’s what you absolutely need. No money, then life becomes extremely difficult.

Pause for a moment, and think. Think of some other things in your life that are really important to you.

Do you care for them?

Look after them?

Place a great value on them?

Never want to be without them?

Treat them with love and appreciation?

It’s a no-brainer, isn’t it? The answer is “Of course I do! Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!”

Ben Franklin reminds us that one of the most important things in our life is time. Time travel doesn’t happen. When it’s gone, it’s gone. One way traffic.

On our death bed, time suddenly becomes huge. We see how much time we could have used better.

Why wait until you’re dying? Value time now.

Use it well. Use it to love others. Make a difference. Do things you love.

Remember, time’s a one-way ticket. No going back.

When it’s gone, it’s gone.

Time out!

Gerry McCann
