Yes, that’s right. We only have 8760 hours per year. Pretty trivial indeed.
Let’s see what we can do with these 8760 hours. Firstly, let’s reduce 6 hours of sleep per day. This leaves us with only 6570 hours in a year. Removing margin- (being a CA student, prudence is must)- we are left with about 6500 hours.
Now let’s reduce that time which we require to do our daily chores – breakfast, brushing, etc. Assuming each day we spend 1 hour (plus some margin) on these things, we are left with about 6100 hours.
Now comes the time taken for eating, going out, leisure, etc. Lets us consider it to be around 1500 hours. We are now left with only 4600 hours of productive time. Mind you, 4600 hours for our ownselves in one year.
The main contention is how we spend these 4600 hours which will either make or break our lives.
The problem with us is that we think we have a lot of time.
If used judiciously, these 4600 hours can take us to the pinnacle of success. But if wasted, these can also lead us into an abyss of failure.
My only advice to myself as well as to other readers is this:
Value time now and soon a day will come when the whole world values you.
Shakespeare once said, “Time is slow for those who wait. It is very fast for those who are scared. Very long for those who lament. Equally short for those who celebrate. But for those who love, time is eternal.”
Do great things- things which matter to you, while you still have time because time once gone, will never come back.
However, by extolling time, I didn’t mean worshipping the clock. Rather, it was for living in the moment, for the moment and by the moment.
Lastly, there is only one thing more precious than our time and that’s who/ what we spend it on. And I believe my readers are wise enough to spend it sagaciously.
