We all complain that we need more time to get everything done that we’d like to. We need more time to have fun, more time to finish a project, more time on Earth. Although we wish that we could, we can’t get any more time here than what we already have, but we can use it more wisely.
The time that you have every day is limited, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve great things. You have 86,400 seconds to change your life – Are you using them well?
It’s an expression that we hear over and over again – “time flies”. The truth is that it really does. Time runs away from us before we’ve even had a chance to grasp it. Take for example, while you’re scrolling through your phone. You go through pictures on social media for what seems like 5 minutes, only to see that it’s actually been an hour.
86,400 seconds sounds like a lot of time but think of how quickly it can be wasted. Imagine how every second is falling away into nothingness. Each second that you waste could be used on something better, instead of letting it fly away from you. Sadly, we can’t get the time back that’s left us.
Use Every Moment of You Day
Stop thinking about a day as just being a day. Don’t even think about it as being 24 hours. Think about every day as being 86,400 seconds. If you do, you’ll realize how much you could really achieve in that time. Every single second of your day is precious and should be utilized to its full potential.
Try to avoid the cycle of “I’ll get to it later” or “I’ll do it in an hour”. Get things done as soon as you can and you’ll have so many seconds left in your day to do even more. Imagine how much you accomplish if you took this approach.
Plan your day well. Know what things you’ll get done at what time and how long you’ll spend on each of them. Thorough planning is truly the best way to make the most of your time and exceed even your own expectations of yourself.
Your Time Won’t Last Forever
One day, you won’t have any seconds left. Although it’s easy to think “oh, I have plenty of time, I’ll do it later,” you never really know what’s going to happen. The people who passed away yesterday had plans for today, and the people who will pass on today have plans for tomorrow. Never take your life for granted.
Use every single one of your 86,400 seconds every day. Do something amazing, brave, fun, do something that will better your life or something that you’ve been too afraid to do. Use your time to do everything that you’ve ever wanted to do, because one day, you won’t be able to.
Your time here is limited. It’s not a nice thought, but really understanding it will help you to cherish your time as much as possible. Make every second of your life count, and don’t let them slip away before you realize that you’ve wasted them. Your life has meaning, it has a purpose, and you need to do everything that you can to live up to your true potential.
Everyone has only 86,400 seconds to make their day count. Share this with your friends and family and urge them to use their time as best they can. We only have so much time to give our lives meaning.
