Take care of the minutes

Take care in your minutes, and the hours will take care of
themselves. – Chesterfield, Lord.

Time has been accepted as the ultimate dictator in our lives. Therefore, until we create a new reality, your success depends on how well you manage your 24 hours. Resist this and you’ll probably end up homeless and financially challenged without family and friends.

I had the pleasure of helping my granddaughter with her homework on Sunday.  She was studying to give a speech – a poem about “time management.”  I was captivated words.

The Poem

Take Care of the Minutes  Cpl. J. Henderson

We are but minutes little things

Each one furnished with sixty wings

With which we fly on our unseen track

And not a minute ever comes back

We are but minutes yet each one bears

A little burden of youth and cares

Patiently take the minutes of pain

The worst of minutes cannot remain.

We are but minutes, when we bring

A few of the drops from pleasures Spring

Taste the sweetness while we stay

It takes but a minute to fly away.

We are but minutes, use us well

Acknowledgement.  I would like to acknowledge those who believe that time is an illusion. There are thought leaders and scientists who support this belief and others who romanticize the idea that we would be happier if time was not part of everyday living.

Time  is an illusion. ~ Albert Einstein

When we are doing what we love, we don’t care about time. For at least at that moment, time doesn’t exist and we are truly free. ~ Marcia Weider

Time doesn’t exists. clocks exists. ~  Unknown

Is time an illusion? This thought provoking question- from my non-scientific point of view – will be explored in another blog post.

It’s a wrap

In this physical world, time management is important for your success. You can’t save time and use it another day. You can’t borrow time from someone else. You don’t get more time if you’re good and you don’t get less if you’re  bad. We all have 24 hours in a day. No more, no less. Use it wisely.
