Spending the Precious Currency of Time

One of the greatest insights I ever heard about CHOICE was delivered in the context of TIME.

There’s no such thing as not enough time, a smart person told me once. You have to think of time in the same way you think about money: Dole out the precious currency of our time as you wish, but know there are consequences to how you spend it.

So, if you spend a large amount of time on behaviors and activities that are unhealthy or unproductive or rooted in the unchangeable past… then you have little time for doing the work of the wide-open future.

The choice is yours. How will you spend your time today?
