Time Well Spent

24 hours a day. That’s it. Spend them as you wish. No one can earn more hours than another. Time comes in equal shares. No one can increase their shares by shrewd investing nor can one steal hours from another. Time is the great equalizer.

What if money were doled out the same way? Every human being gets $24 dollars to spend each day and that’s it. No squirreling away a few coins for future use. You either spend it or you don’t. What’s leftover disappears, cosmically recycled into some grand pot. The next day you wake up and there’s another $24 to get by on.

If this were the case, that $24 would take on an entirely different value. You’d spend it with great care, taking into consideration the daily needs of your family, your community, and your natural surroundings. You would learn to wisely spend each dollar, balancing priorities against the constant changes of your daily existence.

A life well-lived = time well spent. The more you invest in time with your friends, family, and community, the greater the dividends: peace, joy, and good health.
