Valuing your time

If you’re up to something in life, you value your time.

Even when it comes to something as simple as grocery shopping, you know:

  • When you’re going to go
  • What market you’re going to go to
  • What you’re going to buy

You get in and get out and move onto the next thing.

But if you aren’t up to something in life, you aren’t mindful of time.

Even when it comes to something as simple as grocery shopping, you:

  • Can’t decide when to go and leave it until the last minute
  • Don’t know which market to go to and end up Googling it
  • Have no idea what you’re going to buy and end up forgetting things or spending more than intended

By the time you get home, you’re tired and stressed out and have no idea where the time went.

The difference is not in skill or experience.

The difference is in being up to something.

When you have a big enough why, you’re necessarily more efficient.
