Do you ever wonder how hours go by and before you know and the day is over? With nothing to really point towards, no matter how small, as a milestone. The hours run, the days fly and the weeks just disappear.
In my case, spending my days in that manner leads to self-pity. A feeling I don’t like.
For this article, all I want to do is share two questions. If you ask yourself these question often, you might just have a better way of using your time. They help me, I’m sure they can do the same for you. Let’s dive in!
Where Am I?
Sounds like a question that can be asked by someone who has been unconscious for a while. Well if you don’t know what you do with your time, you’re lifeless. But I’m not here to tease you, well maybe a little.
Anyhow, it’s necessary to always be present. Being present doesn’t only refer to your physical existence. It includes your mental, spiritual (and whatever you believe you’re made with’s) presence. Knowing where you are, will lead to an even more important question.
What Am Doing here?
This is the bomb!
I think we can all agree that going to places with no proper intentions will just lead to unnecessary drama. If you ask me, it will lead to sin. And this is the question that helps in fighting against time wasting.
If you ask yourself-What you are doing at that particular place-and find no answer to the question. The remedy is simple. It’s either you find something worth doing at that place or leave.
For instance, you’re in class yet you’re not really attentive. In short, you’re zoned out!
You: Where am I?
Yourself: In class.
You: What am I doing here?
Yourself: Wasting time. Daylight dreaming.
Yourself: Alas! I should concentrate.
And that’s how you end up with hours that have been well used. Every time you move from one place to another, repeat these questions and you will have tamed time and have better days. Achieving minor things leads to joy and that joy helps in getting even bigger things.
