https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOksW_NabEk How cool is this? Someone actually made a video demonstrating my favorite time metaphor (or at least close it), first postulated by Robert Ringer. The quickie, abbreviated version is that you have about 20,000 days of life as an adult before you die, but those 20,000 days are more like 6,000 days when you factor in things like sleeping and nonproductive life essentials (going to the bathroom, dressing, shaving, etc). Worse, those 6,000 days are only if you're 25 years old and you're guaranteed to stay within perfect health all the way to age 70. This means most people have way less than 6,000 days left. That probably includes you. This is the reason I'm such a time management freak. Every other resource in my life can be replaced if I lose it. My house. My car. My business. Money, friends, love, companionship, career. While it's not very pleasant or romantic to think about, everything you can think of, including the things I just listed, can be replaced if you lose it. You can always go get more. Everything except time. If you waste a day, month, or year, it's gone, and you can never get it back, no matter how amazing, smart, or rich you are. One way to offset some of the horror that video describes is to get your income high enough where you can outsource most or all of the drudgery work in your life. You can't oursource things like going to the bathroom or brushing your hair, but you can outsource other areas described in the video, such as:
- Preparing food (as well as cleanup)
- Household chores (cleaning, etc)
