There are 31,556,926 seconds in a year. That's a lot of split seconds that could make a drastic difference in your life and the lives of those around you. Each one passes in the blink of an eye quite literally, but it's all relative to how you look at things. Life in general is nothing more than a string of moments connected together to make up an existence. Each and every one of them is an opportunity and time itself is not so much the important thing, it's what you do with that time.
A single second or just a few can make a huge difference in the way your life turns out. Take for example stopping at a traffic light for 30 seconds. In the greater scheme of things, it truly means nothing, but what if it did? What if 30 seconds further up the road and driver runs a red light that you would have been passing through and being trapped at your particular light just saved your life.
Time is precious, and we only get so much of it in this life. None of us really know when it will be our time to go, so there is no way to say how many seconds will be a part of your life. But when you think about in the sense of time is precious and we never know when our time will be up, then you should seriously consider making the most of every second that you have breath in your lungs. You have to grasp at the opportunities that your time presents and take advantage of them.
Your business is not a waste of time- Every chance you get to do something productive for your business is a good chance to take. You never truly know what will pay off for you or what will go bust. But one thing is for sure, not spending enough time planning and developing your business is a massive mistake that will have huge repercussions.
Your family is not a waste of time either- Quite frankly, your family should be above your business, because they will most likely be there when your business let's you down. Much like your own life, there is no true way to measure the seconds that will make up theirs, so make them count. There's a lot to be said for people who make the effort to succeed in business and find the time to balance their family life along with it.
Your dreams are not a waste of time- Your dreams are the very thing that got you to where you are today. At least this is the case for many people, and I hope that you fit within this group as well. Dreams are a form of hope that lead us toward something greater. Every dream is worth pursuing and this in turn requires time. But if you are willing to fight to make your dreams come true, then in my opinion it's time well spent.
Yes, there are a lot of seconds in a year. Each one becomes a still frame within your life that you carry with you the rest of the way through memory. Each one is unique in it's own way and each one can provide or take away. It all depends on what happens within that split second when you blink your eyes and time doesn't stop.
