The ROI of Time

Like any other resource, your “time” is worthy of an investment strategy. A well thought out plan to maximize its effectiveness in our lives.

Unlike some commodities, it’s not a renewable resource, once its gone its gone for good, can’t make any more of it. Yet we tend to live our lives as if it’s endless.

Bottom line no one gets out alive.

Every day you wake up, you’re on the downside of whatever time you have available. For some of us, that’s less than others. But the mystery of life is such that no one knows for sure what’s left or what percentage is gone. Ignorance is bliss.

Invest your time wisely

Like the adage says; there’s no time like the present. Be consistent and purposeful, not concentrating on what’s left but acutely aware of where you are at this current moment. Maximize the NOW in your life with a strategy and measure that strategy with an expected ROI in mind.

ROI = soft and hard returns

Invest in yourself. Feed your soul, seed your mind and stimulate your physical self. 

Invest in others. Encourage support and be generous with your accolades and cautious with your criticism. 

Invest in projects. Get excited and pursue projects with passion. 

Invest in things that personally payoff for you physically, emotionally, socially, financially, spiritually and intellectually. 

Study after study proves the quality of life is optimized when we live well rounded and full lives. Choose to live your life filled with social interaction, regular physical activity, and intellectual pursuits.

Fulfillment is its own, reward

Plan and prepare daily, use diaries, lists, calendars, and planners, whatever works for you. Do it with purposeful intent and do it consistently. Make short, medium and long-term plans and diarize commitments and results. Strategize and measure the return on investment of your time. Your time deserves accountability and understanding. Know where the ultimate payoffs are. It is incumbent upon you to understand where your time’s spent/invested and what the return is.
