How many of us are productive? How many of us are not spending time just to pass it? Well for all those, you are loosing some of most valuable s#it.
Time and tide wait for none. Unless you are time traveler of course. But if time travel was possible, time travel is already possible? Lets leave this mystery to some other day.
Time is valuable. Most valuable. One has a limited amount of time. It depends on person on how you want to spend it. Lets talk on per day basis. About 1/3rd of it is utilized on sleeping, without which we couldn’t be healthy. Which leaves us with 2/3rd of time, i.e., 16 hours per day. Now in this 16 hours, lets say 1 hr is utilized on eating, 1 hr on freshening up/bathing/getting dressed up/hygiene things. This leaves us with 14 hours per day. Lets assume, on average, a person walks/travels for an hour of total, which we can count as a person doing nothing. So that brings down us to 13 hours. If you are working, then 8 hours go to the work. If studying then too we can, on average, lets assume you spend 8 hours on it. Which leaves us with 5 hours which you can utilize on yourself. These 5 hours which you can do what you want. Even those 8 hours may count, but here on general talking about people who are either students going to school or working professionals. Just 5 f*cking hours for yourself per day. Which you utilize to do random unnecessary s#it.
Lets keep this assumptions aside and move back a couple of steps back. A person has 13 hours which he can utilize productively being healthy. so 78 hours per week, assuming you will take rest on Sunday. Now, at the end of Saturday, ask yourself this question: “What did I do in these 78 hours which I will remember for rest of my life?”. If the answer is “Nothing” for many weeks then just think what are you doing with your life…
Time is a very valuable commodity. Utilize it wisely. Some play video games. Some create sculptures. Some build rockets. Some press nuclear buttons on their bench. But all of these people have same amount of time. Its just how these people have decided to utilize their time which is the difference on being productive or not. Do what you love, do it wisely. Just don’t waste time on doing unnecessary things which you wont remember s#it later on. Just don’t waste time. Just don’t.
Social Media, TV, Netflix, YouTube, Mobile, etc. All can be a boon or bane. It all depends on how you utilize it. Following that b*tch wont give you success. Nor will tagging someone on a random meme which you will not even remember after 10 years down the line. Getting more marks than the topper can. Or can be that appraisal which you were working so hard. Or it could be that satisfaction which will tell you, hell yeah I can do stuff which even I didn’t believe I could till now…
Quoting what Elon Musk said:
If someone works 40 hours a week and you work 80-100 hours a week, you will achieve what they will achieve in a year in just 4 months.
Even though the math over there is not right, the motivation is hell damn to the point. Stop utilizing time as a commodity available in abundant. It isn’t. Stop being nothing in your life. Start being something. Leave a dent on the universe, nothing can stop you. Just remember, “Crazy things can come true, if you have that will power to make it happen”.
