We recently changed our internet and cable provider. On the day of our appointment, I came home at the point where the tech asked us what we wanted the name of our network to be. I said “Waste of Time.” It was sort of a joke but then I really thought about it. We know that our TVs, phones and other devices can suck us into a time warp. We can binge watch for hours, surf the net, check our social media and not even realize the amount of time we have spent in front of one screen or another.
Are there better things we can do with our time? Of course! It is up to each of us to determine how our time is spent. When we have an eternal view of time we may be surprised that our time is not being spent wisely. We may want to take the time to prioritize more carefully. If we are aware of our time and how much time we waste we may spend our time differently.
Here’s the thing about time:
Time is a precious commodity.
None of us know how much time we will have to do what matters most.
Once it is spent you can’t get it back.
Time flies way too fast.
What are you and I doing with our time? Maybe it’s time to make a change in how we spend our time.
