24 hours. 1,440 minutes. 86,400 seconds. That’s what we are given in a day. No matter who you are, where you’re from or what you believe, we all have the same 24 hours to do whatever we need to do in a day. In 2018, I’m going to be very deliberate about the way I spend mine. My word: Intentional.
According to Google, the definition is “Done on purpose. Deliberate.” This is the way I want to spend the majority of my time –deliberately and with purpose. I want to own those 1,440 minutes and decide where they go each day. And the truth is, whether we are conscious of it or not, we all already do. From the homeless guy with a sign and a cup to Oprah, Jeff Bezos and even Beyonce or JK Rowling (who were in the top 3 highest paid entertainers in 2017, according to Forbes), we all have the same 24 hours every day. I want to waste less and enjoy more, accomplish more. I want to make memories with my kids instead of being in the background of their memories. I want to make these moments count.
