So many times I have thought that I just cannot do something. I waited too long, I’m too old or too young, there is no point and so on. One day I was giving the missionaries from my church a ride to a town that was an hour away. I was busy with oil pumps and had to work late, and even later since I gave the missionaries the ride.
When I told my wife about it later I remember saying, “It’s good to be around the missionaries, or at least it is better than not being around them.”
For whatever reason that really stuck out to me. How many things that we decide to do or not do are better for us if we do them? Many times things are binary, it is simply better that we did them. Of course there are those things that we have done that it would have been better that we didn’t, but I find that there are many more things that we should have done that we didn’t.
Safeguarding time by not using it?
One of my faults is that I won’t do many things cause it takes up time…time that I could be doing something more important…as soon as I find out what that is. Or time that I could be sleeping…since I always need to catch up on sleep. It seems that I always hoard my time thinking that it will help me, when really, the time passes whether I do something with it or not. So, simply put, it is better to do something with the time you have, rather than nothing.
Are you hoarding your time?
