“My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.” – Steve Jobs
In medieval times a moment was 90 seconds long. Nowadays some claim that a moment is 1,5 seconds or just a short period of time.
In the highspeed world we inhabit today we should adopt a moment to mean the same as augenblick/blink of an eye.It takes about 0,3 seconds. It’s both brief enough and long enough for us to make decisions that will impact the rest of our lives.
Let’s say we give it a period of 1 week. This is what it breaks down to:
1 Week is 7 days.
7 days is 168 hours.
168 hours is 10.080 minutes.
10.080 minutes is 604.800 seconds.
604.800 seconds is 2,016,000 moments.
We experience over 2 million moments during a week. Two million opportunities to make choices that impact our lives and others. That’s AMAZING! Try to remember one moment during the last week when you made a real point to enjoy. Imagine having several in a row. Imagine having 2 million in a row!
Now this product feels terrible and depressing, but the lessons we can learn from it are priceless!
