While we all woke up today with different amounts of money in our checking accounts, we all woke up with the SAME AMOUNT of time. It’s not like I get a 32 hours in a day and you get 20 hours in a day, and you get 35. You, like everybody else, get 24 hours in a day, and you get 7 days in a week. So 24 hours in a day. 7 days in a week. That’s 168 hours a week. That is how much is in your Time Account.
As you spend that time, you don’t ever get any of the minutes that have passed, back. So the last hour of today has passed and there is no getting it back. Unlike money, there are no refunds of Time. You don’t get any time back.
What I love about Money is that you can always make more. Sometimes I say to myself, “There’s always money to be made Gina! If worse comes to worse, I’ll just go wash windows.” Now, I have some strong preferences about HOW I go about making money. I’d rather not go wash windows, but there is ALWAYS money to be made.
However, you cannot make time. Now you could use money to buy time, and people who want to spend money to buy themselves more time in the day, well, I call those people prospects (in my business).
I want you to start to hear the phrase SPENDING TIME in the same way you hear the phrase SPENDING MONEY. There’s some real power or awakening that comes with starting to relate to time like it’s something you are SPENDING. It is getting Spent. When you start to related to Time like something that gets Spent or Invested, new ideas or insights may start to appear for you.
Comment below telling us 2 things: Tell us 1 thing you spent money on in the last 24 hours, and 1 thing you spent time on the last 24 hours. (Groceries & writing agenda slide) It will sound like: “I spent money on groceries. I spent time writing an agenda.” Or “I spent money on a new lamp. I spent time reading emails.”
