First I would like to start with a lyric from my all time favorite band, Pink Floyd:
"You are young and life is long, and there is time to kill today
And then one day, you find, ten years have gotten behind you
No one told you when to run,
You missed the starting gun..."
The song title is simply "Time" and it's a scary song. It is the absolute truth, and the truth hurts. You cn spend a lot of time doing nothing, kind of just wasting it, putting things off till tomorrow, and then you realize that a lot of tomorrows have gone by and you still haven't gotten anything done.
I came across this little art crd tonight on Etsy, from an artist named tapestry316 (http://www.tapestry316.etsy.com/). It says "It is never too late...or is it?" It's kind of a double message~ it's inspirational, because it gives you that motivation you might need to do something. But it's also a warning, saying that if you put things off, you might never get those opportunities again.
I guess a way to get the most out of time is to make a list, even if it is a small, mental one, of goals that you want to reach each day. Waking up in the morning with nothing in mind to do is sometimes fun and relaxing, but getting things accomplished is fullfilling.
If there are other ways to make the most out of your day and time in general, feel free to leave comments!
