Maybe you're starting to reminisce about what your most precious asset is right now. Your brain starts to say'money', 'property', or 'gold'. What if I told you it's none of that?
Yes, the answer is the most common asset that everybody has. It is your time. Why is time more precious than money, gold, or your own property?
The concept is simple: there are only times that you can't buy with your money. It's so precious yet so common in human beings, so they're undervaluing it and wasting time so much.
Even one of the greatest critical thinkers in the world, Marcus Aurelius, said, "Everyone's protecting their own property and money, but why aren't they protecting their times?"
Maybe you ever heard that quote somewhere before. Times can be our friends that led us to success, or your own enemies that led you to failure.
So the point of this stash is to give you insight on how to not waste your time and become successful in life.
"Vivre sans temps mort"
To live without wasted time
French politicians adopt this quote to do their job. They believe that time is the most valuable.
And now maybe you're wondering why the day feels so short. It feels like you don't have time to do the things that you want. It may feel like time is just passing by.
In this modern world, where simplification and instant things become 'normal', we're not appreciating times enough. We often waste it in the most unnecessary way.
You can name it: staying on your bed, scrolling mindlessly, and yet feeling so tired at the end of the day.
So what do we do to save our time and grow more in this modern day?
means 'remember that you're going to die'.
We know that our time in this world is limited, yet we still waste our time chasing something that isn't important. We're still chasing fame, other recognition, and maybe the wrong prize in life.
Remember, sometimes our clock is going to stop, and our chances to live have come to an end. Are you going to leave this world with regret? Or maybe you're going to sit one day and say, "Damn, I could be better than this. I could be the greatest."
I'm gonna tell you the truth. You can be the greatest, if you're spending your time wisely.
Basically, this quote is famous in stoicism. They use it as a reminder to not waste time and do better things every day. Things that led us to success, freedom, and your goals.
Now this is your call to stop wasting time and do something productive instead. You can start with reading a book, exercising, or doing the business that you've been wondering about all this time.
Say to yourself, Is it going to be 'one day' or 'day one'?
Remove all your distractions from your phone, limit your screen time, and do something productive. Instead of watching TV in bed in the morning, you can take a jog around the neighborhood. Instead of scrolling endlessly, you can start reading a book. Instead of consuming that trash content on your phone, you can start learning a new skill.
In this modern day, social media is taking our time and attention. All of this algorithm is taking our energy with this distraction and keeping you from chasing your success.
Wake up! This isn't your dream, right?
"Oh, you don't know my routines. I don't have any time to do all this reading and exercise stuff. I'm just so busy, man."
The answer is simple: make the time for it; don't just wait that 'free time' will come. Spend your time, or maybe even do it when you're able. You don't need to read a whole book in a single sitting. Reading it while commuting or spending your night reading 10 pages a day is better than that.
You want to start reading? Make time for it.
You want to get in shape? Start exercising today.
The clock is still 24 hours; you'll always have an option for it.
These days, information is spreading so fast. Can you name it? What is the last ten content you've watched?
All this information, many of it, isn't important to you at all. They're taking all of your emotion, your thoughts, and maybe your energy to respond to that.
Isn't it....kind of unnecessary?
As humans, we have limited resources in our minds. So spend it wisely.
You don't have to have opinions about every news story; you don't have to start a tomfoolery debate with someone you don't even know in real life.
Spend your attention and time WISELY. Spend it to get your work done, learn new skills, get in shape, and do something beneficial for you!
There's no prize behind discussing something unnecessary to your life.
So why do you still mind it every time?
So there it is. Learn to understand that you have all the control over yourself. You have all the control over spending time in your life.
So, spend it wisely, and you won't have to suffer in the future.
Hello! I read books and write it down here
This one change can change your perspective into times. As we know, we spend the time in unnecessary way. So how we can avoid it?
