You will never have more time

Mar 28, 2021

You've probably been told a million times that you need to make the most of each day. You're well aware that time is constantly flowing, constantly slipping away.

You may even feel it stumbling out of your grasp each afternoon as you try to keep track of time among everything that's actively on your mind.

All the stress, all the worries, the anxiety-inducing concerns that are simultaneously transient and immediate.

I always try to keep at the back of my mind something that Seneca noted in his moral letters to Lucilius:

What man can you show me who places any value on his time, who reckons the worth of each day, who understands that he is dying daily? For we are mistaken when we look forward to death; the major portion of death has already passed. Whatever years lie behind us are in death's hands.
