How much value do we place on life: the lives of others and our own? From a leadership perspective, the answer to the question is measured in the way our time is spent.
Most are familiar with the expression that “life is not measured in the number of breaths we take, but in the moments that take our breath away.”
The idea expressed here involves value that is placed on the way we live. If we lose sight of what is most important, we can easily get caught up in what is referred to as the “tyranny of the urgent.”
As each second ticks by, we have no way of reversing the clock and going back to gather them up and use them again in a different way.
We are all given the same number of minutes in every hour of each day. How we use that time is determined by the value we place on it.
Take a moment to reflect and remember that as the seconds go by, they are gifts from God. Each one is valuable and worthy to be used influencing others for the Lord.
