Have you ever had a meeting with limited time on your hands, and felt it was going nowhere? One person can’t stop telling personal stories, while another person keeps hijacking the direction of conversation in ways that are  counterproductive to the overall purpose? That is because most people don’t view time with the same level of importance. An hour to your neighbor may not be as important as an hour to you. 

Some people feel they have all the time in the world on their side. Some people feel they don’t have enough time. While others take the time that they have and make the most of it, regardless of how much time it is that they have. 

Here’s some food for thought, and something that we all have in common when it comes to time. Every second, minute, and hour you’re either creating or destroying something. It’s not a question of whether or not we’re creating or destroying something daily, the first question is “Are you creating or are you destroying?”

“The benchmark isn’t whether you’re creating or not, because you’re going to do that by default”.

What did you create yesterday? What did you destroy? Even when we’re doing “nothing” we’re still creating or destroying. For example, you could be creating a space for rest or destroying time that could’ve been better spent elsewhere. 

The benchmark isn’t whether you’re creating or not, because you’re going to do that by default. The benchmark should be on the quality or quantity (depending on the objective) of what you’re creating or destroying. Too often we lose sight of the value of our time, which makes us lose sight of the value of what we are doing daily with that time. Aim and Plan wisely.
