Regarding time

Updated on October 20, 2015

Each time somebody is born, he is given some genetic and environmental traits. Genetic traits come as physical and mental. Environmental come as - where you are going to be born, who your parents are going to be and other things that come with it. It is a kind of "bingo" game. You cannot choose where you are going to be born, how you are going to look, how clever you are going to be,...

But with birth comes one more thing - time. All of us have some amount of it. In general, time is used to define which event was "before" and which is "after". It is a measure used for the organization of events. First event ever is Big Bang. From there time and space exist. Before that is unthinkable. Depending how we live, we might have more or less of time. In average, about 75 years.

Why does a day have 24 hours and why does an hour have 60 minutes and why does a minute have 60 seconds? That has something to do with the Egyptians. And it does not really matter how it is formatted, because time does not stop. It flows by.

Could we live without measuring it? Imagine your life in some remote area. You would be waking up when the Sun comes up and go to sleep when it gets dark. Kind of - animal. Scheduling of tasks would be difficult and especially following of progress. Deadlines would have to be set according to phenomena such as the full Moon,tides or flower blossom. This would result in large amounts of wasted potential where some other action could be done.

If there is a potential, it should be used in the best possible way. Each of us possess this potential and each of us is in control of it. We can choose what we want to do and time is the only thing we really have! Time that is given to us enables us to do all of the things we ever wanted. As Seneca has written in one of his letters: "While we are postponing, life speeds by. Nothing, Lucilius is ours, except time."

But many people don't appreciate time. Our lives are filled with waste actions. Transportation, waiting, watching TV, excessive sleeping,... These are the actions that we are "forced" to do, without thinking could we eliminate it? Could we do something else instead? If there is no TO DO list, no goal, then there is no control over time and it will be spent without purpose. And time can not be slowed down and we can not go back in the past.

So use your only true wealth as you want it and share it only with those you care about. Be happy with your amount of sand in the hourcglass. And make sure you know why you used it the way you did.

Regards,

Nikola
