The Value of Time

“There is a right time for everything. Everything that we do on the earth has a proper time.”
‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭3‬:‭1‬ ‭EASY‬‬

“Time doesn’t ask for your permission as it passes by— it asks for your attention— so that you can prioritize what matters the most!”

I want you to know today that what you prioritize matters and what you invest your time in is important. And, the good news is— you get to choose! Everyone of us get 24 hours in a day and 365 days in year.

However, what you don’t make a priority won’t be. I’ve learned that why you don’t intentionally prioritize probably won’t happen. You have to intentionally make room for what matters the most.

You see, most of us don’t need more time, we just need more selective priorities and more intentional boundaries. We need to prioritize our time and give our attention to what we value.

Priorities and boundaries are what guard and grow the time that you’ve been given. They help protect your time and make it last longer and mean more.

What’s a priority for you? Maybe it’s making money? Maybe it’s family? Maybe it’s a career? Maybe it’s a friendship or your faith? 

No matter what your priority is— what you make time for gets your attention and what you make a priority will become just that! 

However, time is different than money— you can’t earn it or make more of it. You can only invest it and yield its personal dividends, so spend it wisely. 

Invest in those people and those things that mean the most to you— those things that you value. That’s where the dividends will come from, so don’t waste your time on what you don’t value.

You only have the time that you have been allotted. How you invest your time will determine the dividends that you yield and it will create the experiences that you experience.

What you prioritize will reveal what you value the most. And what you invest your time in will determine what you experience. You will either receive in return a lasting memory or a lingering regret.

Therefore, don’t allow those things that don’t matter to rob your joy or to steal your peace. Don’t allow those little trivial distractions to detour you or to distract you from those things that truly matter. 

We have all said, “Man, that was a waste of time!” Or maybe you’ve said, “Wow, I’m sure glad that I made time for that!” Learn from that and be intentional moving forward.

Focus your time and energy on what you desire to experience and give your time and attention to those things and to those people that truly matter to you.

*Remember: “Time doesn’t ask for your permission as it passes by— it asks for your attention— so that you can prioritize what matters the most!”

Time is something that you can never get back and it is something that you can never make more of. 

You can only invest it in those people and in those things that you choose, so spend it wisely on those things and people that matter the most!
