This quote, by Baltasar Gracian, gives us a different perspective of time.
It’s the only thing we all really have. Even someone with absolutely nothing has it. But when it comes to free time, we don’t all have the same amount. And what we physically possess isn’t always a predictor of the intangible time we have. For instance, someone who’s amassed a great deal of wealth can have less or just as much free time as someone with significantly fewer assets. Moreover, they may not even have much time to enjoy the things they have.
At the end of the day, when it comes to time, it really doesn’t matter who we are. In a way, it’s the great equalizer.
So how can we be more wealthy with our time? It’s the only thing we all have. However, how we use and enjoy it can make all the difference.
