YOU GET 86,400!  NO RETURNS! 

Disclaimer: Good Day, Readers.  WealthBuildingPowers blog is a financial literacy/competency blog and does not provide specific investment recommendations.  

YOU GET 86,400!  NO RETURNS! 

Each day we get 86,400 seconds, and at the end of those 24 hours, it’s gone.  

As I get older, I recognize the importance of prioritizing my time.  I tried to STOP wasting time on things I have zero desire to do or acknowledge bring zero value.   

Your job provides you with the earnings necessary to live and enjoy life.  Your job is NOT your life.  I strive to be a Good: Christian, Son, Brother, Father, Husband, Friend, and Man.  I try using my precious 86,400 seconds to achieve that objective.  Amongst the hustle and bustle of everyday life and work, time is the greatest gift to give someone. 

TAKE CONTROL

IS THIS TASK IMPORTANT TOO? 

  • You or those you love;
  • Your career/business or future;
  • Your values;
  • If not the above, can you skip it?  

If you answer yes to the above questions:

  1. Can I delegate/hire someone?  Years ago, although I had allergies and made myself sick, I decided to mow my lawn.  Why?  I was too cheap to pay someone and ultimately could have made better use of my 86,400 seconds.
  2. If impossible to delegate (I learned you could not ask your wife to buy and wrap her gift!  Who knew!), how can I JUST DO IT?
  3. Finally, if the task is repeatable (buying your spouse an anniversary gift), how can I eliminate it (divorce), automate {FTD will send flowers on specified dates, and YOU NEVER GET ACCUSED OF MISSING THIS IMPORTANT DATE!}} or delegate (bribe your oldest child)!  

EFFECTIVELY USE YOUR 86,400 SECONDS

I am happy to see new investors among my readers.  Let’s keep building your competency.  

If you do not desire to invest in index ETFs, make sure you understand BEFORE investing your money:

  • The fundamentals of your investment (Stock Cryptocurrency, Options, Bonds, Real Estate, REITs, etc.)  
  • The future forecast  

Take the time you saved from the above exercise and build your investing competency. 

Finally, how many of you pulled your calculator to see if my math is correct on the number of seconds in a day?  I like knowing who my anal, non-trusting readers are!  PS: I checked the math when I first saw this!  TRUST BUT VERIFY!

CONCLUSION – YOU GET 86,400!  NO RETURNS! 

NEVER LET ANYONE STEAL YOUR JOY!  USE YOUR SECONDS, AS YOU WILL NEVER GET THEM BACK!
