The way you spend your time is the way you spend your life


“Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.”

~Carl Sandburg~
The first step to spending your time on the right things is to be aware of how you currently spend your time.

Imagine for a moment that you’re sitting alone on your bed, You’re a 100 years old. Your weak, tired and you know the end is near.

You ask yourself the question of questions: “How did I live my life?”

It’s impossible to answer that question without reflecting on how you spent your time.

Would it be good idea to start reflecting on how you spend your time a little earlier than on your death-bed?

I think so and here’s what happens when you do:

  • You become aware of the choices you make
  • You make different choices
  • You spend your time differently
  • Your life becomes different


Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back.”
