For you have something even better than time, better than money, and better than any valuable resource you can imagine. You have life, and the resourcefulness to make good and meaningful use of it all.
Regret for wasted time is more wasted time.
We all know how time flies by but when we make good use of our time the days are filled with so many good things that there should never be regrets for what wasn't done. We should have only good thoughts about what we did.
When we make the best use of every moment time is never wasted. Since I've retired I've found I have nothing but time on my hands. Time to do just what I love to do. That isn't to say I didn't make the best use of my time before, but I did have to work full time and even then, at work, time was always critical. I did things at work that were required by my job, and I had to decide how and when things should be done. Making good use of time is important no matter where you are or what you are doing
Many of us spend half our time wishing for things we could have if we didn’t spend half our time wishing
For me it is all about setting my priorities. If work is a priority then we do need to make the most of the time spent there, but when we leave work, things like family times, our friends and even our time spent with God each day, take preference. The truly important things in life need never be neglected when we spend our time well.
Too many try to over schedule their day. They are like the doctors offices that are filled with people waiting to see the doctor. I'm sure they always over schedule their office calls in case someone doesn't show up for an appointment. So if we set too many goals for the hours we have, we'll never catch up…something will always be left waiting.
Don’t count every hour in the day, make every hour in the day count.
