It is amazing to think about how fast a year can go by. Do you realize a year contains 8760 hours? Even if you sleep 8 hours a day, you still were awake for 5840 hours. What did you accomplish in those 5840 hours? How much money did you earn... do you have any left? How much of that time did you spend with your kids, your partner, your loved ones? How much of that time did you give to yourself...to think, process and evaluate yourself and your life?
Self reflection is the cornerstone to growth and happiness. Days become hours and full months become days. Make sure you are prioritizing your time and getting the most out of it. We ask teens to give 50-100 hours of their 5840 waking hours to learning how to drive... that's a mere 1.7% of their year. Remember, the higher the percentage we give now, the many more hours, days and years of life we give them on the back end.
One of my favorite quotes is "The clock not only tells us the time, it is a timer that is counting down our life. As every minute that passes is one less minute we have left - poor decisions only speeds up that clock"
