--> Time <--

“Aren't you beginning to feel time gaining on you? It's like a predator. It's stalking you. You can try to outrun it with doctors, medicines, new technologies but in the end, time is going to hunt you down and make the kill.”
- Soran, Star Trek: Generations

Time. It’s our most precious commodity.

NOT to do something can cost us our time. What if we were never to exercise? We would save ourselves time, but we would be creating an unhealthy future for ourselves, which would decrease our life-span. Good fitness is an example of investing a little bit of time in the short-term, to gain more time in the long-term. The fringe benefit of good fitness is quality time -- not only can we live longer, we can live better with more vitality, energy, and fewer physical ailments.

We’re already doing so much. We don’t want to do any more... This is where we forget that time is not a constant. Time actually expands in the degree to which we make use of it. Doing more doesn’t necessarily mean having less time.

One little thing can make such a big difference. Start small. What do you think about when you’re brushing your teeth? Are you thinking about your teeth? Are you staring at yourself in the mirror? Or, are you allowing random thoughts to flow through your mind? What if you were to visualize the rest of your day as you would like it to be? What if you were able to see yourself moving throughout your day with confidence and fulfillment? If you try this, your day might seem to move more fluidly. You will feel more accomplished. You will remember the important things. All of this would be saving you time. What if you were to try this today?

And here’s the great news: You won’t have spent any extra time. WHAT we choose to do (in the conversations we have with ourselves) determines how much time we have. There are things that we can do to even multiply our time. For example, if the previous activity works for you and makes a difference, then the time you spend reading this article will multiply.

Try this visualization technique and see if it works for you. Don’t put it off! Rachel Griffiths in the HBO Television Series, Six Feet Under, said, “The future is just a concept we have, so we have an excuse not to be alive today.” So, do it now. Get up and brush your teeth! And have yourself a fantastic day. :)

Time. It’s our most precious commodity.
