“He who gains time gains everything.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli, via Money: Master the Game
“You’re already a financial trader. You might not think of it in just this way, but if you work for a living, you’re trading your time for money. Frankly, it’s just about the worst trade you can make. Why? You can always get more money, but you can’t get more time.” ~ Tony Robbins, Money: Master the Game
Introduction: Finding your Life’s Task can be one of the most important discoveries of your lifetime.
In order to live a fulfilled life, we need to live fulfilled days. And if we want to feel fulfilled day-in and day-out then we need to pay attention to how we’re spending our time. The great accumulation of minutes and hours turns into days and weeks which turns into months and years which, of course, turns into a lifetime. And when you boil it down to how we spend the majority of our time on a daily basis, which area do most of us invest our time into? It’s our Life’s Task.
“Time is short, my strength is limited, the office is a horror, the apartment is noisy, and if a pleasant, straightforward life is not possible then one must try to wriggle through by subtle maneuvers.” ~ Franz Kafka, via Daily Rituals
