ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD
All the time in the world? Hmmmmm. Well, if my calculations are correct we all have 70 days until the official end of summer–and less until school starts. We also only have 4,300 hours until the end of the year (and only 2,900 waking hours.)
Let’s take a minute (pun intended) to look at how we look at time. We have a tendency to believe we have the time to do it all and if we can’t, we’ll just get to it tomorrow. What if there were no tomorrow? As we hear of all the people murdered this month in the news I wonder if they woke up the day they died thinking they had all the time in the world to do what they needed and wanted to–but were waiting till later to do them.
I say we should make a “Bucket List” for 2016 to include the things we want to do before the end of summer and the end of the year. It’s good to be spontaneous, but it’s better to have an idea of what YOU want to do so you don’t end up doing all the things others want to do.
We make fun of the Millennials because they want it all and they want it now. That’s not all bad. They value time more than their parents did. If you watch commercials aimed at the younger market you’ll notice they are selling the idea that you should have the time of your life . . . and you should have it now.
Does it feel like the first half of the year flew by? Usually the second half goes be even faster. Let’s make the most of our time before we turn the clock and the calendar to 2017.
