Time is one of our most important resources. That this is continually wasted throught futile debate that is too often followed often by nothing.
Every moment is valuable. We can make more money, we can never make more time. That we waste this vital resource in so many ways is a shame. We waste it when it is free, we waste it when it costs. We waste it in futile debate about solutions to problems, some of which never were. We waste it through broken promises. We waste it by trying to buy it, by trying to give it away or sell it. Sometimes, the most valuable thing we can do is to sit still for a moment. Take stock, life is not a race. There is no urgency, and most certainly money is not the real priority that we have today. It is also certain that money is not the solution.
Officially it would appear that priority today is exclusively related to finance. Time spent is about money and repairing the extensive damage done to those wealthy while ignoring the damage being caused to most people. Time spent in futile pursuit is time lost, forever. Is it now that we should admit that the problem is not repairable? Like a broken, old and rusting heap that once was a car lying damp in a ditch, it cannot be repaired. If this analogy is indeed true, as it most definitely is for some, then a new car is perhaps the only remedy. A remedy, not repair to a human plight but the complete replacement of the driven system. It is true for some, those dying from stress, those taking their own lives out of frustration and despair are the same for whom this impasse will remain for their entire lives. We can make more money, we can make more material things but no ingenuity will ever make it possible for us to make more time. Money lost is a challenge. As with any challenge, time used correctly may allow us to rise to the challenge. The time we have lost is lost forever, let us not loose any more time.
