TIME AND PURPOSE
Life, if well lived, is long enough. Seneca
It is not about the measure of time available; it is about what you do with the amount of time you have.
We have read about a 33-year old Jesus Christ who imparted the world within those few years before leaving this world. We have also read about 969-year old Methuselah whom the world is not sure of his impacts while still alive.
You may by reason of grace, strength and good health live up to 100 years in this world, but the audit of your life may show that there were only 9 years of living a purposeful life.
The question then is: what about the remain 91 years????
Answer: Purposeless and wasted.
My point is clear: DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME ON PURPOSELESS VENTURES.
Recently, I had an epiphany that revealed to me that every purpose is written and enshrined in time.
It is quite simple: Waste your time, waste your purpose.
Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived was right when he wrote: To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven-(Ecclesiastes 3:1)
Whatever you call purpose therefore is an assignment, task, event, dreams, goals…etc that is time bound.
This simply explains the reason why many people on the surface of the earth do not fulfill purpose. It is because many people on the surface on the earth are chronic time wasters.
If you know how to waste time, you inadvertently have learnt how to frustrate purpose.
Unlearn and avoid your time-wasting attitude and you become a purposeful person to reckon with.
Every mission in life is time bound; in the military, in the aviation industry, in governance, in the medical sector…etc. Everything responds and will eventually bow down to time.
Time is the devourer of everything. – Ovid
Time therefore should be respected.
This is one singular reason why I personally avoid people who don’t have respect for time. There are many of them out there and in your bid to succeed, you must consciously and deliberately avoid them.
People who don’t have respect for time don’t do well in business. They have no sense of urgency and make themselves experts in making excuses instead of result.
