The Value of Time

It's the start of a new year! And as usual, it feels as though the holiday season was a blur. Time. Really. Does. Fly.

When I think about time, my mind wanders to relativity. Not Einstein's theories, but to the relativity of time as we perceive it.

A unit of time (minute, hour, day) is defined. Time is an objective quantity. But the perception of time is subjective, an hour may pass in an instant whereas a minute may feel like an eternity.

The Value of Time

Time keeps moving forward, which makes it much more valuable than money (at least in my eyes). You can always earn more money, but you can't earn more time (unless you have a time machine).

Given that life is finite and of an unknown duration, it must be spent wisely. How will you spend your time?
