If you’re like me, there are never enough hours in a day, days in a week or weeks in a year to accomplish all that you want to accomplish. Time is scarce and valuable. Who doesn’t wish they had more time. No, this isn’t another post on how to spend your time more wisely. I’m writing this to remind us to celebrate, because this year your wish has come true. In 2012, we all get an extra 24 hours added to our lives:)
That right, an extra day to take your kids out of the house and do something…anything. An extra night to spend an evening on the town with your spouse. A few more hours to finish that project or accomplish that task you have been putting off. February 29th may seem like just another day, but don’t be fooled, it is a gift. So, spend it wisely.
Now you might be asking yourself, “Why are you talking about a day that is still more than a month away?”
Because, if you don’t plan to use your time the way you want or need to, other people or things will use you and your time for you. Now I know that we all have a full life, jobs, school, schedules to keep and things we have to do…BUT this year you have been given an extra life, an extra 24 hours to spend it how you want. You may decide to spend that extra life on a different day, as opposed to February 29th, and that’s okay. The point is that you take time this year, ’cause now you have 366 days in 2012, to do something different, something that you haven’t or couldn’t do in the past couple of years.
The key is to start planning for it now. Be strategic with your life and time, so next year you don’t say, “I wish last year I did….”
So, what about you? What are somethings you wish you had more time for?
