Today's Quotation:
How you spend your time is more important than how you spend your money.  Money mistakes can be corrected,  but time is gone forever.
David B. Norris

Today's Meditation:

There's plenty of time that I've wasted away that I'll never get back again.  I don't agonize over that fact, for if I did I'd be wasting the present, also, but I do keep it in mind as I go about making decisions day after day.

I guess the most difficult question that I face is how I should best spend my time.  I may need to rest, but someone I know may need to talk to someone, and there I am.  Which is best for me to do?  Usually, I'll listen to my heart and trust that a time of rest will come for me soon, then spend the time with the person.  I think that in making decisions, people always should come before work (unless being fired is imminent), especially at home.

Spending time making sure that I have enough rest is also important, because that determines just how effective I am at other things.  And rest doesn't have to involve laying or sitting down-- a nice walk in the woods or out in the desert is just as invigorating for me as is a nap.

TV?  As little as possible, though I do love to laugh, and there are some half-hour shows that always make me laugh.  I try to read a lot, and I try not to spend time worrying or fretting about things out of my control-- that's time that I'll definitely waste.

But these are personal views-- what about you?  What are your best uses of time, and your worst?  It isn't until we actually start to think of such things that we can change some of our habits that may be limiting us, keeping us from getting the most of the gift of the time that we have to spend here on this beautiful planet.

Questions to ponder:

1.  How do you spend most of your time?  On which pursuits?

2.  Are there other pursuits that may deserve more of your time?  That may make you feel better while doing them?

3.  What are your main criteria for deciding how you're going to spend your time?

For further thought:

Don’t be fooled by the calendar.  There are only as many days in the year as you make use of.  One person gets only a week’s value out of a year while another person gets a full year’s value out of a week.
