“Don’t count every hour in the day, make every hour in the day count.”~Anonymous
Are you so ridiculously busy that you can’t find time to do amazing things?
If you answered yes to the above, you couldn’t be more wrong.
Great things can happen in tiny durations of time. And this is what makes time so amazing; it’s merciful. It doesn’t necessarily demand that you slave away for years to create something absolutely riveting. It only demands that you focus yourself when you do use it.
I’ll give you an example that you creators will resonate with.
My brother, Flying LlamaFish, spent a couple minutes (if that) writing a post which went violently viral on stumbleupon! Try 80,000 views. Not only did he write it in just minutes, he was also enjoying fun dip while doing it. That’s insane, yo.
To contrast that… I’ve spent hours writing a piece that gained very little traction.
How about your love life? Can your love life for the rest of your existence be transformed in mere seconds?
If you see a dashing guy or girl that inspires you and you decide to courageously approach, which leads to friendship and then something greater–you’ve profoundly changed your life as a result of one decision and one conversation that took moments.
Time is on your side, damnit! It’s how you use it that counts.
This weekend I spent a few hours writing a post for Darren Rowse because I really want to get Tick Tock Timer out there to the masses. If he accepts it (You better, Darren!) and that gets the dominos to start falling until this site becomes ridiculously popular, I think we can all agree those hours of time invested were a tiny sacrifice for the potential reward.
True… we don’t have every waking hour free to spend as we please (everyone takes dumps). But, those free moments do come no matter how busy we are and if used with focus, they can literally change the course of the rest of our lives.
Got a free hour? How about a free couple minutes? What will you do with them?
