Day 2 Week 12 – Value Of Time

5 miles easy pace, sunny & 73 degree

The amount of time we have each day is the same.  But how we value our time differ.  Here is an example of my time value has shifted.

Before my retirement three years ago, time is a scarce commodity because a big chunk of my time went into employment and associated activities.  Activities include commuting, business trip, thinking/ planning for the work week, etc.

Even when not working or thinking about work, my time is divided among competing personal priorities like family, running, and other commitments.  It is like a game of Whac-A-Mole that I never feel there is enough time.

After retirement, I still have the same amount of time, but the difference is now I have more control of my time.  And by extension, my life.  No more work, children are grown,  and I spend the time on what I want.  Simply put – no rush and more quality.

Call it a state of my mind, if you want, but that Whac-A-Mole feeling is gone.

How do you value your time?
