you and time

I remember when I was much younger, my mom would sometimes sing what I assumed is a line from a song – time waits for no one, it passes you by. She sang that line whenever I was running out of time to get dressed for church or school. I hated hearing it lol.

Hating it didnt make it less true. I’m much older now and I’ve learnt time is a commodity. It can be invested, it can be lost, it can be spent, it can be wasted. It cannot be saved and it cannot be retrieved. The same quantity (24 hours per day) is available to everyone. The difference is how you choose to utilize this valuable commodity. It is a choice. How are you using yours?

I came across this interesting and true spin on time management. I hope it wakes you and helps you put things in the right perspective.


Between You and Time

It is a mistake to think time is going. Time is not going anywhere. Time is here until the world ends. It is you that is going.

You cannot waste time. Time is infinite. You waste yourself. You are finite. It is you that grows old and die. Time does not.

Make better use of time.

One of the worst things to do with time is comparing yourself with others. A cow eats grass and gets fat but if a dog eats grass, it will die. Never compare yourself with others. Run your race!

What works for one person may kill another person. Focus on the gifts and talents God gave you and don’t be envious of the blessings He gave others.

Roses smell better than tomatoes, but it doesn’t mean roses can make a better sauce! Stop comparing yourself to others.

You also have your own strength; look for it, use it and build on it. All animals that exist were in Noah’s ark. A snail is one of those animals, and if God could wait long enough for snails to enter Noah’s ark, His door of grace won’t close till you reach your expected position in life.

Never look down on yourself, keep looking up. Remember that broken crayons still color! Do not relent in your effort, keep on pushing, as you never can tell how close you are to your goal. Do not forget you are here to make an impact, which must be a positive one.

Don’t waste yourself ‘cos you can never waste time.
