Time . . .

By
Home Inspector with Complete Home Inspections, Inc. TN Lic#050

    Time. To me, it is the the indefinite continued progression of hours, minutes and seconds that mark my existence in this plane of existence. Like everyone else, I strive to utilize this most precious resource as I realize that once I spend it on an activity, there are no refunds. It is spent and that’s that.
    So how do I, as flawed creation living in a flawed world, best utilize these units of measure that mark my continuation on this spinning orb? Yes, there are calendars that require me to time block every second. If it is not on my calendar, it does not exist. I put down work time, play time, study time . . . and yes, for every season . . . there is a time.
    I know, heavy subject. For some reason, my subconscious must have been dwelling on this subject as this was one of the thoughts that was in my conscious when I woke up. Perhaps, it is the Universe’s way to let me know that I am a finite being and as a ‘Free Spirit’ I need to better utilize this most precious commodity.

And that my friends, is my 2¢’s worth for this morning - M

I never understood time blocking and always have enough time to do what's important.

Good morning Michael.  Unless there is training I need to attend or a doctors appointment etc., I do not block time.

Good morning Michael,

The one part I like is there seems to be more play time with a nap thrown in occasionally.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

There is much to do on my agenda today and have my time alloted for it. Without a plan the day would dwindle away.

So true Michael, the older we get the faster time seems to pass too.

My life's major hiccup is spending most of my time these days. I am working with a modified dress code until my nerve endings forgive me. It feels great to be alive!

I hope you are having a great weekend Michael of TeamCHI - Complete Home Inspections, Inc.

Michael- time is kind of an arbitrary measure of a unit that we never have enough of and runs out before we know it.

Michael,

 Time is precious and I am stingy with it I have no use for fake friends, my time is precious and I only share it with the people that really matter to me!

Michael yes we do have to make sure we use the precious minutes we have wisely, but we do have to allow for some flexibility and spontaneity.

I'm still working at trying to make more time for myself, but I think I'm close to reaching a happy medium.

I'm pretty good at time management, but that comes from my previous profession where we had actual daily deadlines, and a lot of people depended on us being accurate. I think working on the most important task until it's finished is the best way I can use my time. It doens't make sense to waste time on something you won't remember in a few days.
