Time is Precious
“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come.
We have only today. Let us begin.”
~ Mother Teresa
Mother Teresa's right, time is precious. Once it's gone, it's gone. We all have the same 24 hours in a day. What you do with them can make a difference.
I realized how precious time really is when only yesterday (30 years ago) my son was born. Yesterday I was changing his diapers and tomorrow he'll be changing mine. I find there are too many distractions like World of Warcraft and TV that all had to change when I needed to change the direction of my life.
I find even when family comes over the distractions start. I finally got a caution sign on my door that reads "Do Not Disturb Writer at Work. I now get that time because people see that I'm seriously working and creating not playing.
What is Time?
- A dimension and measure of events ordered by past, present, and future
- It’s what clocks were made for.
- Topic of business, industry, sports, science, and science fiction
In the Episode Blink (2007), the Doctor said
that people assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect. But actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey... stuff.
