Lately i been doing some thinking regarding how life really works. I tend to get this way when i am entering  a new chapter in my life. The topic of discussion is how time works and how valuable it is for our society and specifically me.

What is time? Time is a man made invention to keep track of our lives on earth. Its strange how we created such a thing to keep track of the minutes and hours of the day, but so many of us, including myself spend majority of it wasted. I picture the amount of time that i spend on the computer simply browsing the web. How about the hours spend on online gaming. How come I dont put my time to good use and do something productive? Is it strange that majority of the people i know if they are not working, they are wasting away their time doing mindless things? Am i the only one concerned about this. I feel like its only in America that we spend our time so foolishly. I heard stories of the Asian culture putting more time and energy in studying important stuff that will one day help us reach unbelievable heights. Us on the other hand, fail to even graduated our pathetic public school system. How sad is that really..

There is a solution my friends. It takes 1 simple class with a devoted teacher to express how important time really is. I believe the first 12 years of schooling for most Americans should be about the essence of life with the basics of English and mathematics. What our public school system has failed is to motivate its crew (students) to reach out and think outside the box. Develop something new or even venture off into the distance for new discoveries and more.

How can you motivate our youth to use their time wisely for something much more important than TV or Internet? I believe to teach our youth the value of time and how short we have to create something important or simply make a difference in our world can dramatically help with the motivation to do more. Our ancestors knew the value of time, because they were the ones who created it. Now that we have time, and plenty of it, we choose to waste it away. I am here to tell you to use it for good, and use it to help people discover new things and learn something new.

Average time spent on earth is roughly 73 years old depending on who you ask in the United States. With that said, we are increasing our life expectancy every year. What for? Most inventors and astrologist have done and discovered far more within their 40-50 year life cycle than we have in our 75 year. Every new generation our productivity drops lower and lower. Our attention span follows at a striking rate.

 

Make use of your time!
