How to Leverage the Time you Have?

Time is a limited resource; it is the one thing, that if we lose, it stays lost. We cannot get time back – it cannot be bought or sold or bargained with. Use your time well and don’t take it for granted that you will live a long life. Develop a sense of purpose and an impetus to drive your life.

"Just 1095 days to live… Time is a limited resource… Use it with a lot of prudence!"

Time…  One thing which when lost stays lost, one thing that we can’t get back, one thing that cannot be bought, one thing that cannot be purchased. 

You use it you lose it; you don’t use it also you lose it.  So might as well use it and turn it into something. 

I don’t know what is the age average of this group, but for calculation purpose and something that I’m comfortable with.  So, I will assume that the age average of this place is 30. 

The average at which an Indian die is 70…  72 now it is but we’ll keep 70 because I know to calculate only that much.  2 will come into fractions, which means on an average, we have 40 years of life left.  

One third of this will go in sleep.  So that takes away 13 years of your life.  You are left with 27 years. 

One third of this life will go in work.  That takes another 13 years of your life.  It leaves you with 14 years.  Work, student, home maker….one third will go in that.  That leaves you with 14 years. 

Anybody who lives an urban life, just your morning activities… brushing of teeth and then coffee, bath, breakfast, go to office… first coffee, second coffee. Then if you are involved in the job, half an hour lunch.

If you are not involved in the job, two hours lunch.  Then after that end of the day dinner.  Your daily chores will consume about 4 hours every day… just your daily chores.  That takes away another 7 years of your life, you are left with 7 years. 

Anybody who lives an urban life, travels on an average for one hour every day.  And with the way cities are expanding, it’s going to be more.  But on an average…  One hour every day and that takes away another 2 years of your life.  You are left with 5… 

Minimum one hour every day is invested on entertainment… television watching, whatsapping, facebooking, all those social medias, internet surfing… minimum one hour. 

That take away another two years of your life. You are left with 3 years of life.  Which means if you are 30 right now and you’ll die at 70, beyond your daily… day to day life, all you are left with is three years of life. 

1095 days left to live, 1095 days left to die. That’s it. 

And I know lot of you want to argue with me saying that you don’t sleep for 8 hours.  I know that, but you don’t work for only 8 hours.  You work for 12 hours, 14 hours… it makes up.  You don’t have entertainment for only one hour a day, that was very conservative.  I almost treated you like a saint and told you that (Laughter), which isn’t the case. 

And in all this I have not put time for exercise because only if you exercise 70 is possible, otherwise before itself you’ll go.  I’ve not put time for exercise, I’ve not put actuals on entertainment, I’ve not put actuals… Because if I put all actuals, most of you should have died yesterday. 

Then I can’t do anything so I have to keep you alive to teach you some concepts, so I’ve put conservative estimate everywhere.  1095 days left to live, left to die. 

Develop a sense of purpose, an urgency and get an impetus into your life.  Don’t live life as if it is eternally granted… it’s not!
