“Nonsense is so good because common sense is so limited”

George Santayana

When we waste our time, this is what I call nonsense. And there is so much time that is wasted.

When we are being smart with our time, this is what I call common sense. And there should be more of this.

Being smart with our time has a different definition for each one of us.

But wasting our time will give us similar results; Frustration, Dissatisfaction, Regrets, Procrastination…

Do you use common sense more often than nonsense?

Act now because now is all you have. Too many times, we wait before doing what we know we should be doing.

This is called procrastination. But why do we wait? Is it because of fear? Is it because of laziness? Is it because of a lack of self-confidence?

Whatever the reason, time will not wait for us.

There is no cure for birth and death , save to enjoy the interval.

George Santayana

Did you ask to be born?

Will you ask to die?

I doubt it.

In between, we have to make the best of life with the talent we posess and the time that is given to us.

It is so simple. I wonder why some of us make it so complicated.

Do you know why?

Are you one of those who have a tendency to complicate things?

Most people I know prefer to avoid the subject of their own mortality. I know , it’s not the most exciting subject, but I think it’s a mistake not to look at death straight in the face for what it really is. Why? Because if we would dare to look at death , most of us would change a lot of things that we are currently procrastinating about.

We have seen this happen many times: when someone gets diagnosed with an incurable disease, when they learn how much time they have left to live , they change a lot of things in their life.

Some of the people who went through this extreme experience said that it was the most intense, fulfilling genuine experience they ever had.

My question to you is: Why wait until you have no time left before making significant changes in your life?

“Procrastination,the presence of mere intention, is the bane of humane existence.”

How many times in our lives did we say; we should be doing this or we should be doing that, and then nothing happens.

Why?

Is it a lack of determination?

Is it a lack of desire?

Is it a lack of persistence?

It could be, but what if it was something else?

What if it was because we think that we have all the time in the world? Do we really have so much time?

I’ll let you answer these questions for yourself. Have a great week.

 

“Procrastination is the thief of time.”

Edward Young (1683-1765) British poet

A lot of people are afraid to lose their health.

In most cases, we can and will regain our health.

A lot of people are afraid to lose their friends.

We can always make new friends.

A lot of people are afraid to lose their money.

But we can always earn more money.

Very few people are conscious of the time they are wasting

Procrastination robs us of our time, life is short.

In which area of your life are you procrastinating?

Why ?
