Let's talk a little today about time.
I found this video back in September 2009 and I enjoyed it so much that I copied it over to save in my blog. I had it saved in my hundreds of drafts and just rediscovered it today.
It continues to “wow” me.
One of my most favorite sayings that I repeat to myself on a daily basis is
“The days are long but the years are short.”
I wish I knew who to credit it to.
That simple 9 word sentence reminds me to avoid letting the “feel” of having endless time during the day allow me to watch years pass by without having made the biggest and BEST impact upon those around me possible.
How are you using your milliseconds today to make an impact on those around you? What are you doing today to make the web and the world a better place?
And, at every moment of the day, remember to ask yourself “Is this the best use of my time right now?”
- If you're sitting on the floor playing peek-a-boo with your toddler, the answer is a resounding “YES”.
- If you're working on something that directly makes you money, the answer is probably “yes”.
- If you're wandering aimlessly on YouTube, Facebook, or are playing Farmville, the answer may be “no”.
Regrets suck. At the end of my life, I hope to have as few as I possibly can.
Please share your thoughts.
PS. Also think about this video. If you can create a video like this that touches people, it could be a heckuva marketing message, too. 😉
