I’ve realized that our culture offers little practical training on how to spend our disposable time or how to invest it wisely to get the desired return. It was Ben Franklin that said; “lost time is never found again.” Or is it? Mr. Benjamin Franklin also said; “remember that time is money.” That quote in our modern culture has been shortened to “time is money.” Those of us that maintain a full time job know very well that we trade our time weekly in exchange for money. Some of us earn more money for less time and of course the opposite is true. I started thinking about my disposable time outside of my work hours. I hear so much talk about how we spend our disposable income, which means the amount of an individuals income that remains after the deduction of income taxes. This income is available to be "disposed of" as either spending or saving.
I have concluded that my disposable time is a valuable commodity, one that should be dispensed with deliberate care. How do you spend your disposable time? Do you spend it all in one place? How much time is saved for family and friends? How much time do you set aside for a short nap under the shade of a tree on a perfect summer afternoon? How much time is lost in passing from one event to the next? Are you just too busy all the time? Ben Franklin said; “take time for all things: great haste makes great waste.” Wow! All things? I think old Ben was a man keenly aware of time and how to spend it wisely. Take a moment of your time today and post a comment on how you choose to spend your disposable hours. More on this subject to follow.
New York Times columnist, David Pogue discusses the Wii's fitness potential
in an online post. After witnessing his family burn calories while
gaming, he thinks the Wii is one of the best possible indoor activities
This might actually be true. I have played the new Nintendo Wii several times since Christmas, specifically Madden 2007. My arms feel much stronger and look more cut, only days later. I am thinking about entering my biceps in the Gun Show. Request tickets to the show via email. :)
The New Year represents a fresh start. A genuine opportunity to look back and learn from last year's mistakes, misfires and misguided attempts at losing those fat handles. Like joining a gym and only going a handful of times but still paying the monthly dues for eight months. The new year is a time to reflect on the good and not so good moments of the past year making a resolve for unprecedented change. It's a time to declare with great conviction "I Will!" in the new year ahead.
Last year I tried the no resolution plan. Thinking that if I made no promises to change anything that I would slowly change all the things that needed a fresh start in my life. The no pressure approach turned into the no plan no win scenario. That did not really work either. I just kept putting off losing those pounds and saving that extra cash among others. So this year my resolution is to first accept what I have accomplished in 2006 and certainly to accept my failings as well. I have paid off credit card debts, kept healthy, spent more time with my family than last year and managed to get a promotion at my company. I'm not really sure how that one happened. I lost money buying Sirius stock, made money on my Apple stock and contirbuted the maximum into my 401k. I kept current with my most cherished friends, but my parenting skills with my teens sucked once again. Yes, no, no, yes. Pick one and go with it Dad. All of these highs and lows I have acknowledged and accepted with humility. Now I'm ready.
I have resolved to make next year the greatest one yet. I'm talking about the all time greatest year in an entire lifetime. I just need a plan. I'll keep you posted on how that goes. I believe that 2006 was my most improved year yet, which allows me a nice jumping off point for 2007. In the immortal words of Mr. Frank Sinatra "the best is yet to come." I believe it. Happy New Year!
Almost in an instant I have my sparkling new blog up and running. The engine is purring like a Bengal tiger. I can smell that new leather smell every time I climb inside this baby. It was like walking onto a huge blog car lot, picking out my favorite model and then BLAMMO! I'm cruising around cyber space in my new drop top turbo blog with enough room in the back to pick up a few passengers to take along on my big ride. It's my first day on the blog. I'm purpose driven and built for speed.
Today I begin this fantastic journey that may last a week, a month or even the better part of a lifetime. Everyone is welcome to come along for the ride as I take to the open road with my pedal to the floor on one man's highway. So in the immortal words of Mr. Kenny Loggins"please celebrate me home."
