With all the recent commotion that has been going on in many aspects, I see a lot of emotions being flared. Buzzwords and insults thrown, friends and family blocked out – it’s been a very tense and emotional year.
“There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.”
– Lemony Snicket
The key is in not spending time, but in investing it.
Stephen R. Covey
The previous are two quotes I feel like properly illustrate the concept I’m about to explain here, which is frankly – Investing your time unwisely for the sake of patience is not good nor a virtue, but rather a waste of time. As the saying goes time is money, which means that wasting one is wasting both as an interconnection of the two. While I don’t necessarily agree with this in the terms of all life situations, I find a better term to be “Time is worth the value of the money you’re losing or gaining during said time period”.
