Time as we measure it and know it doesn’t really exist, but even so, it isn't infinite. Our time on this earth is limited for us even though it may not exist on a larger scale.
I know you are probably asking yourself what is he talking about? Well, what I'm trying to convey is how important it is to use every day and every hour to better ourselves. In this life, it's so easy to get caught up in a routine.
You know, we get up, go to work, go home and do it all over again. Then the weekends are packed full of shopping for most and I bet if you wrote down what you did in a week it would be less than a page! Why is this?
We have created an environment of routines, and frankly, it's not really that productive for us. I was stuck in that same routine for years and realized I had invested a bunch of my limited time in something that does not better me.
I hike and bike a lot and when I go on the weekends, I notice that the trails are not that full, however, if I drive by an REI or other types of stores they are packed. And the question remains - what do people do with all that pricey gear that sits around collecting dust that had drained their bank account?
Due to the fact that people are so routine, they don't realize that they are missing out on finding the true reason as to why they are here. They are not grasping that their time is limited and the choice to not make the most of it will catch up to them.
Time may not be real, however, the limitations of it are very real. It is imperative that we make the most of our time, in other words, turn off the TV and the phone and find something that is truly beneficial to you and others.
Instead, how about donating your time to others, or how about finding something constructive and creative to do? We all have it in us - all it takes is just a little bit of effort! I would be willing to bet that if you did any of these things, you would find it much more rewarding than just going to REI or the mall, etc.
We all realize that changing our lives is difficult, however, if you make a point to try to do something new each day it will become a more productive routine and it will better serve you and others around you in the process.
So start today to change your life for the better and at the same time, you just might help inspire others to follow your lead!
