One could argue that time is our most valuable resource. Even with this knowledge, we let precious moments get away from us.
Some argue money is the most valuable resource but remember that you can earn all the money you want. Then, you could lose it all and earn it again.
Are you still convinced that money is your most valuable resource? Now, assign a monetary value to your time. This could help us spend it best. If you were to trade your hours for money, what would you expect to make every hour? Consider how much money an hour of your time is worth and make decisions based on the figure you arrive at.
Your energy is another valuable resource. Energy faces limitations similar to time, but there are some things we can do to affect it. You may drink coffee, energy drinks, catch a second wind, and more. Eventually, those antics will catch up with you, but they’re still options.
We can add no more seconds to our day and no more years to our life. When our seconds are up, our seconds are up. That’s a simple fact of life. We probably won’t wish we had more money. While we might wish we had a little more energy, we will likely wish we had more time (unless you detest living). Money can hardly affect the time we have on Earth. In some instances it might, but not often.
Contemplate recognizing time as your most valuable asset and then act on that concept.
Use the hours, minutes, seconds, and years wisely. This second is gone forever, as is this one, and this one. Today will happen once, but never again. Remember this every day. And then, live well.
