[av_dropcap1]I[/av_dropcap1]n life, the only thing we cannot get more of is time. Once gone, it cannot be recovered. It slowly passes by every moment. It is the only currency that makes life worth living because once exhausted, we cannot have it back. Hence, we have to learn how to be time conscious.

However, some of us live every day as if we have all the time in the world. We do things with no single regard for time. We spend time as if it was something we could get back. Time passes by and we feel comfortable with that. No record of what the time was spent on.

Learn that life is short. But well, it might be longer depending on how you spend it. Let me ask you a simple question, can you tell me how you spent the last 24 hours? In details, please. Well, that would be difficult for a lot of us, but you can give me meticulous details of how you spent the last cash you had on you.

Imagine that. We pay more attention to what we can have more of and pay only a little attention to what we have only a limited supply of. How ironic. Life passes by every time. To make it count, you have to make every moment of your life count. Well, it is not like to have to go around with a stopwatch checking out every second you spend, but it is important that you are able to be able to track every single second you spend.

Well, in the beginning, you can go around with a stopwatch if you wish. But until you know exactly how you spend your time, you might not be able to know how to plan your life. You think you are doing something, but when you watch your time, you realize that you have been doing something completely different.

What you become is an impact of what you spend your time on. You spend your time consciously on what makes you grow, you grow, otherwise, you think you are growing but no, you are simply moving. Moving nowhere in particular. Life is as you spend your time, you spend it wisely, you enjoy it, you blow it away, life looks short and horrible.

The option is all yours. Think carefully what you spend your time on today and make a great note of how your time is spent. When you know how you spend your time, you can begin to cut out what does not matter, and with that, you can focus on what matters.

It is never too late to start. Take a few moments today and understand how you are spending your time. Then you can begin to understand whether you have been spending your time wisely or not.

Time waits for no one, but you can better manage your time by knowing how you spend it. Start now, start today. Time never waits.

God bless and have a great day.
