Time

“Life is precious and time is a key element.  Let’s make every moment count.”
~ Harmon Killebrew

Time is the only thing we have, and it is everything, so why do we waste it?  Living in a body means we are living in time.  If we are to accomplish anything with these bodies we are gifted with, we must use our time wisely.

My friend, the late author and anthropologist Ashley Montagu, said something that has always stayed with me.  He said, “If you’re ever going to die, do it at a faculty meeting.  No one will notice the transition.”  If a good portion of your life is spent in the state of suspended animation, then get out and get going. It is no fun to live among the living dead.

Combine good sense with your passions and remember that time is a precious commodity.
