“I once asked a five-year-old what he would take with him if he were going to Heaven. He replied, ‘I would take my parents because I think that up there they would have more time with me.’… ’nuff said.” – Art Linkletter, TV Host
Time is a treasured commodity made more valuable because it is usually in short supply. When a day, an hour, or even one second passes, it cannot be returned. It is fixed. And it is finite.
What might seem to be stating the obvious is really a profound concept worth our reflection during hectic holidays. This season, regardless of which holiday you celebrate or if you celebrate any at all, remind yourself that the family, friends, and even coworkers and clients gathered around you probably crave your attention much more than any other gift.
The key is to consciously honor the person or event, to stay connected during your experience.This is all that “being in the moment” means, and it makes moments last.
- Consider setting aside a few hours for coffee with a friend.
- If you have kids, make a plan to take each one for their own special outing.
- Reserve some time each workday to call your favorite clients and colleagues, check-in, and personally wish them a happy holiday.
Our “to-do list” is always right where we left it, our schedule can remain the paragon of organization, and success will eagerly await our return! But somehow the importance of these things will seem somewhat diminished and somehow less important when first we realize how precious, how priceless, our time really is to others.
Here’s to a great start of 2014!
All the best!
