That’s my OLW — One Little Word for this year. TIME. How much of it do we have? How much do we need? What do we do with it? What do we want to do with it? How much do we waste?
So let’s start with the math of time. It’s finite.
365.25 days in one year times 24 hours in a day is 8766 hours in one year.
60 minutes in an hour, times 8766 hours…so we have 525,960 minutes in a year.
60 seconds in one minute… times 525,960 minutes in a year , we have 31,557,600 seconds in a year. It seems like so much, maybe too much. And it seems infinite.
So this year is about my relationship with time. I’ll be the first to admit time is perhaps my single resource I mismanage the most. I don’t always spend my time in ways that are most productive to my family, to my health, to my friends, to my co-workers or to my career and volunteer endeavors.
I’m going in to this year, with grace from last year, commitment from the year before and will be gentle with myself and intentional about what I choose to do with my time.
It’s about time… and about my math, there are really 365.25 days in a year, that allows us one “extra” day every four years…
