168 Hours

"Did you know that a week has 7 days, 168 hours, 10,080 minutes or 604,800 seconds? Your week, my week and everybody else's week has the exact same amount of time in it. We all have the same amount of time. Why is it then, that some people seem to have all the time in the world, where as others always seem to be "out of time"..?

Some people seem to be (or feel?) busy all the time, often saying "I don't have time for that". What if I told you.....

You have all the time in the world and
you get to choose how to spend it.

Consider it is not about "having" time, but about how you choose to spend it. Thinking about it that way gives you much more control of the feeling you have about your own time. You always have a choice as to how you spend your time.

So why not look at this upcoming week as a fantastic gift of 168 hours that you get to spend on the people, events and work you think are worthy of these 168 hours. Once you have allocated these hours consciously, be happy with your schedule!

If something unexpected comes along that needs an investment of your time, look at your schedule and see if you are willing to re- allocate your time for this or not. In others words: are you willing and able to MAKE time for it? If not, say to yourself and others "I choose not to make time for that" and stick to your decision. That puts things in a very different perspective, don't you think? For me it creates a lot of peacefulness and a feeling of being at the source of my life and time"

Wow! I totally agree with this. It reminds me of a pharse from Wink and Grow Rich, by Roger Hamilton - The fable of a nine-year-old boy takes a journey to learn how to get rich.

As simple as it sounds, one of the most important ideas I've ever gotten a hold of is that everyone on the planet has the same amount of time today, 24 hours. It's all about the choices we make in how we will invest our time and energy.
