This week’s focus point…Ferocious
I was supposed to play golf in a charity event this past Saturday. On Friday night, the news warned of a big storm with lots of rain and high winds. The morning started confirming the local weather guru and my weather app. We are talking buckets of rain and high winds. Not much fun for golf. I called my fellow golfers and we agreed to write checks. I called the organizer and told him we weren’t making it, but he would be receiving a check equal to not only the regular fee, but also what we would have spent on additional games.
I could have gone out and sat through a rain delay, played in inclement weather, and had zero fun. The value of my time predicated that I pay my way out. It’s part of my theory on ferociously guarding your time. Do you ferociously guard yours?
We all too often de-value our time. Days, hours, minutes, and seconds can be carelessly wasted because there seems no consequences…until there is. We can always make another dollar, but we can’t make another minute. It was smarter for me to make a monetary contribution (which was the ultimate goal for the charity) and spend my time with my Barb doing things together. Don’t allow things that aren’t provided value to rob you of your most precious asset; your time.
