How do you spend your time? What do you invest your time in? If you think about it, time really is money…..
It’s pretty obvious in business that time is money. If you don’t get the job done, you don’t get paid. Hobbyists should understand the investment aspect. I have been crocheting for at least 25 years now. Hooks and yarn can get expensive, not to mention all the time spent pouring over patterns and trying new threads.
You also invest time in your relationships. Afternoons spent with family, grilling out, chasing kids in the yard. Long conversations figuring out how we all fit together. And in our technologically advanced times, countless hours spent online looking for a suitable date.
How do you affect the time of other people? and vice versa? Do you use up their time with meaningful conversation? Or do you waste their time, taking whatever you want from them for that moment’s pleasure without giving back anything useful? Do you let another steal your time away?
Do you do things that make you truly happy? Do you take time to help others? When you cut into someone else’s time do you make it worth the intrusion? Do you really have time to waste repeating the past?
