The Highest Valued Commodity

By
Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Realty West & Florida Realty Investments CA01938972, FL BK3090225

Of all the basic elements we deal with daily, there is one that in my opinion, holds the highest value.

 

TIME

And, it definitely increases in value as we age; just like our net wealth(We hope!) 

 

Time seems to be one of the most controversial of all commodities:

  • We never have enough TIME.
  • We avoid time wasters
  • Our female counter-parts never are able to meet a schedule for preparing to be presented in public by at least 30-60 minutes.
  • We reflect on our TIMEs past

You get the point?

TIME is perhaps the most valuable element in our lives, yet we seem to take it for granted.

Relish the TIME spent with friends and family. Sooner than you think, they will begin to disappear from your life, only to haunt your memories with the regret that more TIME should have been spent with them.

So, here are a few basic rules to help you shape TIME to your advantage:

  • Make each moment of very day for the rest of your life count for something meaningful and constructive.
  • Live your life to it's fullest potential.
  • Never capitulate; once you do, all the TIME in the Universe can allow you to retract and relive that moment.
  • Never lose your core values.

Sandy and Norm, I appreciate the time I have more and more each day now.  It is going by way to quickly.  Each second needs to be used wisely.

I agree with your focus on Time. Just as many people do not manage their money well probably even more do not manage their time. Money can be replaced, but time is past is gone.

I like to end the day with the reflection: My time was well spent.

The true value of time usually does not reveal itself until time is of the essence!
