Time Where Does It Go To / It's Gone!

Updated on January 19, 2012

Time has gone since yesterday!!!

If you were fortunate to have read the first part of this article from yesterday and you would like to refresh your memory then just click on the link to the right to re-read then continue with this, the final part. I have entitled it the same title as before and added on 'It's gone' at the end. Which indeed it has. Time has gone so fast since yesterday. I can't believe that today is the 19th January 2012. It only feels like 2 minutes ago it was Christmas.

The Fastest Hour.

That lunch hour yesterday was the fastest hour ever. I started writing and I just couldn't and didn't want to stop.

Thinking about this article today I realise that these two lunch breaks ( on lunch again today by the way ) are probably the most productive breaks I have ever had. Usually I just sit and watch the world pass by, or fall asleep then wake up feeling worse than I did before I fell asleep. Actually I told a lie about watching the world go by. Because I work in a rural area I usually only ever see farm animals, birds, dogs and cats. So it is they I see passing by.

So, here we are again. It's Thursday 19th January 2012, 11:45 to 12:45 as I write this in rough ready for putting up on Hub Pages when I get home. Which I am right now, at home otherwise I wouldn't be typing this for you to read. I hope you understand what I am saying, if not don't waste any time thinking about it. Get it....don't waste any time.

The point above could be key in the time issue. We don't want time to pass us by, but we do want to use the time we have in a productive way. Doing this gives great satisfaction and makes us feel better for using the time effectively.

Sense of Achievement

This is the key.

If you see something at the end of it, then you don't mind losing the time as it were.

This could be a major point in the use of time stakes. Don't waste the time that you have. Spend your time doing things you enjoy and with people you like.

In essence what we do is beat ourselves up mentally when we waste our time doing nothing or things which don't get us fired up. We just go through the motions to get by.

Key Points

  • Use your time productively
  • Do something with an end result
  • Gain sense of achievement
  • Stop going through the motions

Get fired up about the use of your time and you will make good use of it

In The Blink Of An Eye

....our time is disappearing every second of the day and you will never get it back.

That is why I am excited about article writing. Although I am not ripping up any trees in the money making part of it at the moment. I know in the future it will start to happen. The more I put out there the better it will build.

Residual income is what I am looking for.

Residual Income

...... is not a waste of my time or your time. You do the work once ( write the article and publish it ). It stays out in space, people read it, more people read it, you keep on getting paid forever. Job done and thank you very much.

Now, obviously there are things you do to get people to read your articles, but, by and large, you continue to reap the benefits for that one spell of effort in the writing of the article.

I can live with wasting time article writing if I am going to earn some money for doing it.

  • Enjoyment from writing

    = Good articles

    = money

    =Good use of time

    = Happy Hubber.

Hub 12 in the 30/30 Hub Challenge



I never expected when I started this article that I would end up writing about residual income and money from article writing. There you go, once you put pen to paper about something you are interested in you just have to do it quickly whilst the words are flowing and get the job done.

I am now a happy hubber. I have now completed 12 of my hub challenge articles. 18 to go. Hopefully I will see you tomorrow for no.13.

Thanks for you continued support.

    Hi Posh, I especially like the two hubs you've just completed because everyone should remember to make the most of their time here. Here one minute and gone the next. I try to live like I don't have tomorrow...because I just never know. Thank you for sharing this message with so many others! Great job :)

    Great hub. Food for thought I should say. Keep up the good work and I wish you all the best to reach your goal. Eagerly awaiting number lucky number 13. That number is truly considered lucky in my horoscope. I'm a Pisces and was born on a Friday so every Friday the 13th is the day I make sure I get a lottery ticket because that is my especially lucky day. So anyway sending some of my luck your way for your next hub.

    Hi Steve! Do you even realize what an inspiring hub you put together? Thanks for the invaluable reminder that being enthusiastic about the use of our time will make everything better. There are blockbusters about this, and yet you managed to convey everything in almost one single sentence. Love it and will not forget it. Cheers!
