How Are You Spending Your Spare Time?

Each time I have discussed with persons who get stressed out, the complain I get is "I don't have enough time"
Yet when the man becomes really sick, there would be time for him to get admitted and be discharged only at the Doctor's pleasure depending on his progress

On facebook I receive lots of inquiries from persons who respond to my calls but when I ask them (even those that are not in any paid employment), I get the same response "I don't have time"

So now I am forced to ask: "What do you do with your time?"

Now let's do the mathematics of time:

There are 24 hours in a day
of that, morning starts by 12 am to 12 noon ( that is 12 hours)
Afternoon starts from 12 noon to 4 pm (that is 4 hours)
Evening starts from 4 pm to 7 pm (that is 3 hours)
And night time starts from 7 pm to 12 midnight (that is 5 hours)

Sleeping time is from 10 pm to 6 am (that is 8 hours)
Working time is from 8 am to 4 pm (that is 8 hours)
So we are left with 8 hours of FREE TIME

When you say you have no time, then what do you do with the 8 hours free time?

Extrapolating this to a week:

There are 168 hours in a week
Let's say you use 56 hours to sleep (which is impossible for an adult)
then use 40 hours to work for someone else
then use 35 hours to catch your fun, take your bath, travel around
You would still have 37 hours of FREE TIME

Whatever you do with your free time that leaves you with no time, don't you think that an investment into yourself is necessary for a secured future?

Would you not rather PURSUE YOUR DREAMS than make another man succeed in achieving his own dreams?

Think on this!!!

Well said but will a typical Nigerian person hear and apply this?

You are very right.
Many people use their time on frivolity and pleasures.
Our life is like a book with the following features:
1. Preface: when we are born.
2. Introduction: The time we became a child and started school.
3. Phase 1: 10years-21
4. Phase 2: 22-60
5. Phase 3: 60-80 and above
6. Conclusion- Time of exit.
Many are typically in these phases but have wasted the season of accomplishments within them.
Many just opened the book, but never finished it.
