The Value Of Time

The Value Of Time

We don’t really value time as much as we value money, even though money one lost can be earned again, but lost time can never come back.

Many of us waste a lot of time on social media and other platforms consuming content of varying quality. If we really valued time, we would be aware of the time wasted on overthinking or being stuck in the past, or simply being miserable.

The Three Time Perspectives

The Human mind falls in the following states when thinking about time:

  1. Past: Remembering the good old days or wishing things happened differently in the life gone by.
  2. Present: Wanting enjoyment in the present, or always being on the lookout for instant gratification.
  3. Future: Getting good grades, not drinking or smoking, eating healthy food, saving and investing.

The 1/9/90 Principle Of Time Perspective

We cannot be stuck in the past, present or future time perspectives all the time, and have to be aware of how our mind works. To strike a balance, we have to be:

  1. 1 percent focused on the past, like spending 10 minutes writing a journal.
  2. 9 percent focused on the future, making sure to be fit and eat nutritious food.
  3. 90 percent present-focused, ensuring that we read, eat, travel, cook, write, sleep and exercise.

The Time Paradox

  • Balancing how we use our time needs flexibility. If the focus is single-mindedly on a particular time perspective, one cannot lead a happy, well-lived life.
  • Being in the future when one has to be in the present creates misery and conflict.
  • We can live every moment to the maximum by dialling the right time perspective(past, present or future).
  • The wealthiest people in the world who are running out of time know its value, and many of us waste(or kill) time as if it is unlimited.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum
