Time Is The Greatest Equaliser
Struck me today that time is the greatest equaliser. Everyone can be born with varying amounts of smarts, wealth, looks etc. But everyone has the same no of hours in a day. It’s what we make of it. What is the opportunity cost of our decisions? I used to work long hours for money which I find silly now because I was squandering away the real currency of life which is time. I also used to think that the no of hours worked was some kind of badge of honor. But I was so wrong.. Now, the real badge of honor to me is the things you get done and the impact you make in the hours you work + getting the time to have a life outside of work. Hence meaningful work and meaningful relationships became my goal.
