How much time do you have left?

Recently one of my friends asked me what I want to do for the rest of my life.  The other item that I was asked was would the people that you spend your time with, would they come to your funeral?  Maybe this is a bit morbid but think about it. Are you wasting time and energy on unimportant items. Or giving your energy to people that really don’t care or want to care about you?

Here is a way to look at it.  I will be 64 in a short period of time.  Let’s say that I live to be a hundred.

Suppose I see my kids that live her once a week. This means that I will see them for 1,872 times.  Not enough for me.

The kidis that live out of state (2) of them I see about twice a year. This means that I will only see them 72 more times.  THEY BETTER move home.

The long and much enjoyed motorhome trip that Tom and I went on this summer means that I only have 36 of these to go on.  I need to plan these trips carefully as there is so much that I still want to see.

I want to spend my time with my Clients that I really enjoy and that together we can be successful.  How many more meetings will we have?

This is a short but very important blog today.  Put a high value on your time and energy. Make each and every day count.  As you get older the time goes faster and faster. Do not wake up and realize that everything you wanted to do has passed you by.

MAKE your bucket list and knock it off!  I am collecting stamps from all of the National Parks.  I just started this recently and have many more to go! I am collecting stamps from the different States of this GREAT Country and I have more to get!

Stop and look at the sunrise, I did recently and marveled at how beautiful it was.  My day was great that day and I demand more of these!

Have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Remember that I answer my phone and value our relationship,

Linda

    This so resonates with me. We make our own happiness and choose our own lives. I believe it’s important to make the most of every single day, doing what we love, and focusing on what we want, rather than what we don’t have. I personally plan to live to be at least 130. And I believe with recent scientific and medical discoveries and advancement it’s highly likely that I can have a wonderful life for many years to come. So however long it is, I don’t want to waste a moment either. Merry Christmas to you and your family Linda. And thank you for the reminder!

    Very well done Linda. Time is the most valuable commodity in the world. Once it is gone you do not get it back. Your Blog is a great reminder of this as we role into the new year.

    We have to make each day count because we all have limited time on this Earth. Again, this is a great timing for the blog since we started 2020. We have to ask questions like What changes are going to happen and What is on the action item list to make 2020 better than 2019. Making plans on paper and seeing it in action is always motivational for my wife and I. We are teaching the next generation that all things are possible with proper planning and hard work.
