To the Genuinely Concerned,
The two most valuable “currencies of life” are Money and Time.
What if I gave you $1,000,000 dollars that you were required to spend by June 30, 2020 . The only rule is you must exhaust the money.
What would you have accomplished with the money you spent? You most likely will create a plan on the best way to spend the money. Well done. Well thought out.
Now, what if I told you that you have 1,000,000 minutes to spend by June 30, 2020. The reality is you will have spent 1,000,000 minutes by that date.
What will you have accomplished with the time you spent?
Every 694 days (1.9 years) we blow through 1,000,000 minutes of our life. What do we have to show for it? We spent a million minutes on what? How much time did we waste? Did we get a great return on our time commitment?
Do we have a plan for spending our most precious commodity? Are we living day to day without any discipline? Do we structure our work-day to be so efficient that our personal time also becomes fruitful? Do we know the most effective work habits to produce the best return on our time commitment?
Between Money and Time it is obvious which is most valuable. Our time on earth is limited and by default becomes our most precious and prized possession.
The difference between spending a million dollars and a million minutes is the reality of never getting those minutes back. They are gone forever and are irreplaceable. Money can be replaced, time cannot.
Of the 1,000,000 minutes, 240,000 minutes are spent sleeping. How productive are we with the 760,000 remaining minutes?
There are extraordinary achievements in all of us. It takes work and forethought to make them happen.
What are you going to accomplish with your next 1,000,000 minutes? Got a Plan?
Don’t look back and only be able to say “I shouldn’t have wasted that time”.
Life is not a dress rehearsal. Live every moment with purpose. Each moment is gone forever.
