28,835 Days: What Will You Do With Them?

What are you going to do today?

Aren’t we busy enough?  Work, school, getting the kids to sports or club.

Eating, sleeping, taking care of the house.

Television, fun, time with one anther.

Do you ever wonder where all the time goes?

3 Worthwhile Minutes

I was at a recent conference, and they showed what I call affectionately called the jellybean video.

It made me think about how I spend my time!  What I’m doing today, and what’s really important.

As Americans, we have 28,834 days in an average lifespan.  Where do they all go…

Where do they all go…

Happy Birthday!

You made it!  Into the world we come.

That first day is pretty crazy.  A little rough on mom and dad, but what an entrance!

1 Year Old

Wow, that was fast!

I still remember that first birthday party  In fact, I may still have frosting in my hair!

Some Perspective, 15 Years

Although I thought school would kill me, apparently it actually did accomplish something.

Junior High and High School were interesting if not exciting times, and most of the habits I use today I learned from teachers, coaches, and my parents.

I probably don’t thank them enough for the good work they did on me!

Sleep Much

I tried not sleeping a few times.  It didn’t work out so well.  Apparently, after about 39 hours walking into walls is expected.

Eat, Drink, and be Merry!

Eat, Drink, and Be Merry

Now we’re talking!  The good stuff.  Good food, good times, and the opportunity to have a little family time around the table.

I’m sure that this doesn’t include Taco Bell…

3000 Days at Work!

3,000 Days at work?!

I’m not sure whether to laugh, cry, or scream.

Quick math:  26 weeks x 5 days a week: 130 days a year.  Divide by 3000, and we spend 23 YEARS.

I wonder how many of those days actually made an impact beyond the financial ledger.

Time to make the doughnuts!

1000 Days Spent Commuting and Travelling

1,000 days commuting!

I know traffic is bad, but seriously…

Wonder how much exhaust we breathe in, watching the taillights of the car in front of us.

I don’t’ even want to think about the 405 in LA or the Beltway in DC.

2700 Days watching TV!

This made me laugh.  And, now we watch TV on our phones!  Does this include video games?

Technology keeps getting faster and smaller and makes it easier than ever to get lost in wonderland.

After all that…here is what’s left?

Here is what’s left…

With everything that consumes our time.  It’s pretty amazing how little time is really left.  I have to ask myself and you…

What are you going to do with these days?

What if I only had 1/2 that time?

What if you only had 1/2 of THAT time?

What if you only had 1 day?

What if you only had 1 day?

What are you Going to do Today?

I hope this inspired you!

I know it did me, and it makes me focus on what is important.

NOTE:  If right now, your feeling overwhelmed. Here’s an article to help get you back on track!
