Time, to waste, or not to waste? That’s the question!
I don’t remember much that was taught to me in high school. However, there was one definition that has always stood out to me. In our Economics class, our teacher presented the term, Opportunity Cost –
A benefit, profit, or value of something that must be given up to acquire or achievesomething else. Since every resource (land,money, time, etc.) can be put to alternative uses, every action, choice, or decision has anassociated opportunity cost. – http://www.BusinessDictionary.com
There is a cost to everything, even if it’s not monetary. The best example if this is TIME. Time (next to Jesus), is the greatest gift ever given, the most overlooked. That is, until it’s too late.
The irony. It is going to be used, rather we realize it or not. So understand, there is no such thing as, “Free Time”. The opening in your schedule will be closing before you know it. The choices that you make during the “Opening”, will either be very profitable, or very costly. Either way, it will be.
What will you do with the gift of time? Who around you will gain or loss with the decision you make?
Love you, be blessed.
