I love this photo! I find it really striking and powerful and the quote is just as impacting.
Time is our most precious commodity, yet we can easily take it for granted, drifting through it without hardly any awareness or concern. We wake up, we feel fine and the day begins, ticks on and eventually ends, only to begin again.
Time measured with the Hourglass is a measurement on ‘Chronos time.’ As in a clock, to measure the minutes and hours of each day. The same time by which we live every second of our life.
An hourglass is a very special piece of equipment, for as simple as it may look, it has to be calibrated in order to measure time accurately.
As a Coach my passion is to support people in their choice to use their time in a way that enables them to make the most of themselves, their goals and their dreams. I believe we all have both realised and unrealised potential within us. Potential is released through our gifts, skills and talents which we are all given to varying degrees. These have to be utilised or worked in order for us to see and experience the benefits. If we do not use and build on what we have we will never realise the potential of what we have. In the meantime, time falls whether we choose to use it effectively or not. Likewise, our potential will always exist whether we chose to realise it or not.
Time is a gift. It’s not something we can own otherwise we could add to it and change it at any given point. As with all gifts, it’s about appreciating it and valuing it and making the most of it. Nothing worse than to see a precious gift taken for granted or under utilised.
So as the sand falls, and time ticks rhythmically by, what are you doing with yours? How are you choosing to spend your time?
I say to make time count. There should always be room for change. A friend said to me that she had almost achieved and experienced all that she wanted on her bucket list. I have never considered creating a bucket list for myself, but I decided it would be great thing to do. Because a bucket list is made up of your emotional and spiritual dreams – the things you feel are important and that you always wanted to do in your life. It tends to be those important things that if you knew your days were numbered (which they always are!) you would try to get them done before time ran out. This shifts how you spend your time into quality time. So why wait for bad news to a be a catalyst for you to go for your dreams? Each day should be lived purposefully, making the most of your time. Saying what’s important, doing what’s important including to simply love, laugh and enjoy the simple things in your life that can so easily be lost or over shadowed.
Each day should be lived purposefully, making the most of your time.
Be the change you want to be, until next time keep moving forwards towards success.
