This Takes One Minute of Time

You grasp time so tightly that articles on Medium show you the number of minutes it takes to read an article before you even click on the link. Harvard Business Review’s website has a progress bar as you scroll down on any article so you know how far along you are in the content.

Oprah Winfrey says that the most valuable thing we can give ourselves is time.

Take the time out of one day. Write down the date at the beginning of the day on a piece of paper with a pen, “Wednesday, August 16th, 2017.” Make the day finite and absolute that way.

How many Medium articles could you read after you take the sum of the time that you’re scrolling through your phone, gossiping, thinking ill towards someone, holding a grudge, worrying, or sending a work e-mail when you shouldn’t.

Time is the most priceless of currencies.
