We are what we spend our time becoming.
If we are devoting increasing amounts of time to social media, then we are becoming more proficient at digital connections not necessarily meaningful relationships.
If we make a demonstrable attempt to spend more time with people in person, on the phone, by Skype, we are becoming more proficient at interacting with people and appreciating the nuances of their voices and personalities in real time.
Should we find ourselves talking about others in unflattering ways, we are investing our precious capital (time) in a losing pursuit that will eventually make us become them.
But take no joy in the failings of others by remembering our own failings and we’re in the midst of an awesome self-improvement program.
If we’re obsessed with living the life we really want to live and not the life others divert us towards then the return on investment will be rich and rewarding.
When we understand that growing wealth is a direct result of pursing excellence above money, we have discovered the real secret to being rich.
How and where we spend our time tells us more about ourselves than any other indicator.
We become what we spend our time pursing for better or for worse.
