‘The best gift you can give to someone is your time, because you’re giving them something you can never get back.’’

.

Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that is a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are more difficult.

.

Try it: “I’m not going to edit your CV, sweetie, because it is not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases do not sit well, that is the point.

.

Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we do not like how we are spending an hour, we can choose differently.

.
What are your priorities for how you spend your time today?

.

Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can’t make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.’

Rick Warren
