People seem to be always in a hurry; so much to do; never enough time. An economics professor told us years ago that time is a commodity, just as any other valuable item is a commodity: silver, gold, or jewelry. It has value, it has worth. And it can be measured.
If you are asked to do an errand, or volunteer with a task someone is doing, what is it worth? How much is your time worth? Did you ever figure out how much money your time is worth?
Are you paid by the hour? Are you paid by the year? Your time is worth a given amount of money for the time and expertise you put into any project or task.
You are the judge of how you want to spend your valuable commodity of time. Do you want to spend it watching soap operas on TV? Watching sports events? Working out? Talking on the telephone?
Your choice; just remember that if you spend the commodity of time doing one thing, you cannot do something else also. If I choose to go to a movie I cannot read a book at the same time. I can’t work out and bake a cherry pie at the same time. To tell the truth I wouldn’t know how to bake a cherry pie even if there were nothing else I needed to do!
So as I wish you all a very Healthy New Year filled with only GOOD surprises and good experiences, I ask that you give a little time to how you want to use your valuable commodity of time in 2016!
