Before You Waste Your Time

When asked “what the biggest mistake we make in life?”
the Buddha replied, “The biggest mistake is you think you have s time.”
Time is free but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but
you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. And once it’s lost you
can never get it back. The average person lives 78 years, we spend 28.3 years of
our life sleeping. That’s almost a third of our life but 30% of us struggle to
sleep well. We spend 10.5 years of our life working but over 50% of us want to
leave our current jobs. 
Time is more valuable than money. You can get more
money, but you can never get more time. We spend 9 years on TV and social
media, we spend 6 years doing chores, we spend 4 years eating and drinking, we
spend 3.5 years in education, we spend 2.5 years grooming, we spend 2.5 years
shopping, we spend 1.5 years in child care, and we spend 1,3 years commuting.
That leaves us with 9 years. That leaves us with 9 years, how will we spend
that time? Steve Jobs said “your time is limited so don’t waste it living
someone else’s life. So there’s good news and here’s bad news. The bad news is
time flies, the good news is you’re the pilot. Imagine you wake up every day
with 50.000.000 Rupia in your bank account, and at the end of the night, it’s all gone
whether you spent it or not. And then the next day you get another 50.000.000 Rupia,
what would we do with it? Everyday 50.000.000 Rupia seconds are deposited into your life
account. At the end of the day once they’re all used up you get a new 50.000.000 seconds.
We would never waste it if it was money, so why do we waste it when it
comes to time? Those seconds are so much more powerful than dollars because you
can always make more dollars, you can’t always make more time. 
To realize the value of 1 year, ask the student who failed a grade. To realize the value of 1
month, ask a mother who lost their child in the final month. To realize the
value of 1 week, ask the editor of an online media. To realize the value of 1
hour, ask the couple who’s in a long-distance relationship. To realize
the value of 1 minute, ask the person who just missed a bus, train, or plane. To
realize the value of 1 second, ask the person who just missed an accident. To
realize the value of a millisecond, ask the person who just came 2nd
at the Olympics. We think it’s people wasting our time but it’s really us
giving them permission to do that, and in reality, these 2 people live
inside us. Don’t let someone be a
priority when all you are to them is an option. Some of us lose the people most
important to us because we don’t value their time. Some of us don’t recognize
how important someone id to us until they’re gone. Inside all of us are 2
the voices-1 voice that wants to uplift. 1 voice that wants us to expand. 1 voice
that wants us to grow. And then there’s the other voice- he voice that holds us
back. The voice that makes us lazy. The voice that makes us complacent. The
voice that restricts us from our potential. Every day from the moment we wake up
until the moment we go to sleep, inside of us there’s this battle between the 2
voices.  And guess which one wins?
The one that we listen to the most. The one that we feed. The one that we amplify. 
It is our choice of how we use our time. Life and time are the best two
teachers. Life teaches us to make good use of time. And time teaches us the
value of life. And as William Shakespeare said, “time is very slow for those
who want, very fast for those who are scared, very long for those who are sad,
and very short for those who celebrate, but for those who love, time is eternal.”
