This isn't about money. Sorry if I lead you on, but I'm talking about getting rich in something even better than money.
Something that will make you undeniably happy.
Something that will fill your life with love and passion.
Something that change how you view the world.
I'm talking about being rich in TIME.
But don't we all have the same amount of time? Technically yes, 24 hours in a day, 7 days a week, 365 days in a year. All that jazz. Unfortunately it seems the more you try to hold onto time, the faster it slips through your fingers.
Sure money is great. It can buy you better gadgets, expensive vacations and pretty much any material item you could want. But have you ever noticed the more money (and technology) you have, the less time there seems to be?
Less time to relax.
Less time to spend with the people you love.
Less time to do the things you REALLY enjoy.
Still don't believe me? Then why don't you try this little challenge on for size. Find some time; a day, a weekend or even a whole week and turn off all your clocks. Preferably all technology. Get away if you have to. Go to the woods or the beach, but leave your computer, cell phone, i-pod, T.V. Anything and everything that runs off wires and batteries. At first you'll probably panick, then you'll be bored out of your mind. But after that something amazing happens...
you'll be free.
Your mind will stop rushing from one thing to the next, and instead it will sit contended. Instead of desperately trying to grasp onto passing time, you'll find your self with all the time in the world to catch up on the things that really matter.
The lesson here? Ironically, by trying to save time with technology, were losing it, and fast. So let go once in a while.
You'll be amazed at how filthy rich you really are.
