Dividing Time

The most important resource is time and what we do with our own.

But I often find myself compartmentalizing my day and todo’s into different categories and desires — my work list, moonlighting list, passion list, book list, relationship list — which gives the false impression that I have an infinite amount of time.

In reality time spent on one thing, takes away available time for the others. Trying to pack more stuff into one day is a like packing a suitcase when you’re traveling. You can fit only as much as much as the suitcase has room for. You can try to fit more, sitting on it, going at it at different angles, and breaking out a full on sweat by trying to get your suitcase to close.

The more you stuff your suitcase, the less functional it becomes.

There is only so much time you can dedicate to the stuff you have to do, let alone want to do. You can compartmentalize a lot of things, but time isn’t one of them — time ticks on, whether you are using on things you love or not.

Quality time is about doing what you love, with the people you love, and doing that more than on things you dislike
