WHO CAN AFFORD TO KILL TIME? A COMMENT AND AN AWARD

This is a comment written by me in RAMA’S blog- TIME, TIME ….. I HAVE ALL THE TIME.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Time plays a great role depending on the age of a person. I will definitely not like a youngster to waste time. When a person is young and embarking on a career, time is very important. Time is precious. For such persons there is a saying DON'T KILL TIME, TIME WILL KILL YOU.

Youngsters who squander away their time without proper planning will end up being failures in life. Any achievement is the result of proper utilization of time. There is also a saying TIME AND TIDE WAITS FOR NO BODY. Let it be the king and queen, president and prime minister or a beggar on the road – all have only 24 hours in a day. No more no less. How effectively this given time is used will go a long way in determining the success or failure of a person.

At our age when we have accomplished many things in life and can look with some satisfaction upon the fact that we have done fairly well, fulfilled our duties and responsibilities we are entitled to take it easy and enjoy our life without worrying about wasting time. At this age even if we idle away our time doing nothing but staring vacantly or recalling the past incidents in our life which gave us joy or sadness is well spent and we need not regret or feel guilty about it.

The fact still remains TIME WILL ULTIMATELY CATCH UP WITH US. WE CANNOT ESCAPE TIME.TIME IS DEADLY. After all THE TIME THAT WE HAVE IN THIS WORLD IS LIMITED. We have to make the best use of it in living a satisfied and fulfilled life without any regrets or remorse.

  12. Congrats Joseph :)
    Thank you so much for passing it to me. It is greatly appreciated. Time is a constant friend, enemy, companion, mentor. You can't escape it and you can't run from it. But you can abuse it and lose track of it until it catches up to you. I am constantly abusing my time and often trying to speed it up. But time moves at it's own pace and I will never be able to change that, fortunately. Thanks for sharing :)
    God Bless,
    Linnea

  18. Hi Joseph!

    Your comments are always so well thought out and full of the wisdom and understanding that you've compiled over the years. I love reading your comments! I agree with you that it is so important for us to make efficient use of time when we're young adults, and that as we grow older we should be free to spend our time any way we want to, without guilt. It could be looked at as the reward for the responsible choices and hard work of the earlier years. I know that you make great and faithful use of your time whatever you're doing, whether that be writing, reading, blogging, taking pictures, or simply walking around, thinking, and noticing what's around you. You inspire us all, Joseph! Thank you!

    Warmly,
    Mel :)
