Your Time





‘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.’
