Time is certainly our most valuable resource.

What we do with our time determines who we are. It’s easy for me to say that but saying that doesn’t always feeling it.

Knowing what I do with my time doesn’t always equal spending my time wisely.

I often find myself compartmentalizing my day and todo’s into different categories and desires — work list, learning list, passions list, book list, relationship list — which can give 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.

Spending our time is like packing a suitcase.

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 it 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.

Stuffing our lives with more things doesn’t amount to more quality living.

But if focus on what matters (and less on what doesn’t) we can have more space for them to grow.
