The value of time has been linked with our happiness and productivity. It is the only asset that cannot be purchased or regained after being lost.
My suggestion to you is to observe the intrinsic value of time. Not just what can be done in a limited period of time, but also the value of simply having time.
It is surprisingly easy to link the value of your time with the value of your activities. One way to achieve this is to frequently ask yourself this question:
Is the thing that I am doing right now the most valuable activity I can do at this time? It is your choice on defining a personal meaning for ‘valuable activity’. But the human brain does hold the tools necessary to identify the value of time.
We cannot hope for a better world until we drastically re-frame our minds. I believe it is of the utmost interest of populations to participate in a collective initiative against negative perceptions of thought.
Only when we realise how crucial it is to ignore these perceptions, only then we can continue our discussion.
I shall now explain what I mean by ‘better world’, ‘re-framing our minds’, and ‘negative perceptions of thought’.
I accept the irony of this indubitable paradox: we have solid premises which are leading us to believe the fact that technology is beneficial, and yet the effect it has on the self is unavoidably a negative one. And I have no doubt when I say that negative perceptions of thought have been multiplied and are continuing to be multiplied as we become more aware of our dependency on machines.
And yet, we fail to see the evidence of this.
