If we spend all our assets based on priorities – this much for food, this much for indulgences, this much for car payments – do you think of time that way? I’m starting to. How careful I tend to be about spending, but think nothing of a day half gone on the weekend with nothing to show for it. Will it make me a better person if I try to imagine time like money? Probably not. But I hope it motivates me to exercise more often… sigh.
So how do I incorporate motivating myself without being obsessive about time? Is it a good thing or a bad thing to think about how many summers are left, or whether to be quite guilty about being a couch potato on a rainy afternoon. How many times we use metaphors for time that have to do with value? Time is money. Spending time. Yesterday is a canceled check.
Are you contemplating how you ‘spend’ your time? Do you worry about it? Am I nuts?
OK, gotta go! Time’s awastin’
