We study the past examining the events of history, especially the actions of others and analyze their success and failures. We evaluate their actions, decisions and the outcomes of the choices they made. Time is a resource and an obstacle. We can both be awarded time to devote to certain objectives and also see the finite limits of time available to achieve our goals.
I spend time thinking about Time and how it connects to each of us. We are all given a finite amount to time each day. During that time we are faced with choices too numerous to count. We have choices about when and how to begin our day, how we engage or interact with others, what are attitude and mindset will be and how we deal with difficult situations. We also have choices about what we do with our free time, the time we are not at work.
I need a kickstart in my life, a push to use my time more productively. I am looking for inspiration to find new ways to use my free time to feel like I am contributing and benefiting others.
