Do You Have Time?

Recently a friend posted a desperate request on Facebook for ‘more hours in the day’.

If anyone has worked out how to fit another 4 to 5 hours in every day can you let me know,” she pleaded.

This really struck a chord with me as I often find myself muttering the same thing:

“Where am I going to find the extra hours I need to complete all of these jobs?

I stopped myself from indulging the thought for too long and reminded myself we all have exactly the same amount of time… It’s how we value it, allocate it, save it, protect it and share it that determines the effectiveness and quality of our lives.

Masters and minions alike all have 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and a life as long as God and health allows.

How do you value, allocate, save, protect and share your time?

Do you have time?
