Are you wasting your most valuable asset?May 10, 2022 May 10, 2022 /
The most valuable advice my mentor, John Moubray, ever gave me applies to everyone. It took me twenty years, but I finally got the lesson.
When John gave me this gift, he started with two sentences: I don’t own a television. I won’t allow one in my house.
That seemed weird to me at the time. After all, who doesn’t own a television? When I finally got the lesson for myself, it changed my life.
Here it is. Time is a human being’s most valuable asset. Time is WAY more valuable than money. People have earned, lost, and earned back millions of dollars.
You can always earn more money. Money is a renewable resource. But once a moment slips away, it is gone forever. You can NEVER get it back.
No matter who you are, what you do for a living, or where you live, you get the same amount of time that everyone else on the planet gets.
Time is the great equalizer. Your circumstances in life reflect what you do with your time.
I remember reading about Dr. Elmer Gates, an American scientist and inventor (1859-1923). He would tell his secretary that he wasn’t to be bothered because he was “sitting for ideas”…and he would do so for two to three hours at a time.
The only things on his desk were an open notebook and a pen.
We live in a fast-paced world. There’s information coming at us from just about every direction.
Maybe getting “still” and being quiet so you can “hear” or “feel” ideas and inspirations come through could be the best way to spend some of your time. Whether or not that is a valuable exercise is up to you.
Just remember…time is an “UNrenewable” resource…so be careful how you spend it! ☠️
Thank you for spending your valuable time with me today ❤️.
