Why Time Flies By As You Get Older

Managing your time well makes you successful!
[…] Time seems to have become just so precious!
Have weeks recently started to pass by in a such a haste? Here’s why!
  1. that brains lay down more information for novel experiences;
  2. that the “clock” for nerve impulses in aging brains runs slower;
  3. that each interval of time represents a diminishing fraction of life as we age.

People also get more responsibility as they age, so more responibilities = less time

If you are 1 year old, then 1 day represents about 1/365th of your life. If you are 10 years old, then 1 day represents about 1/3,650th of your life. Thus the older you are the faster time may appear to pass by. When you are 1 year old, 1 day may seem to last much longer than 1 day when you are 10 years old.


What to do with limited time? Do less! Seriously! Time is money. Do not waste them. If your not going to have FUN why DO it?

You can always earn more money. You can NEVER get your TIME back!

  • Goals
  • Avoid wasting time
  • Bosses & delegation
  • Specific skills and tools
  • Stress and procrastination

Strategy: Doing the RIGHT things
Tactics: Doing the THINGS right

Are you doing the RIGHT THINGS RIGHT?

How does a leader find the right things?

  • What am I passionate about?
  • What are we passionate about?
  • What is our shared vision?
  • What are our goals?
  • Why are things done this way?
  • Is there a better way to these things?
  • Would changing the way we do things improve those things we are passionate about?
  • Do these changes support our vision?

Imprtant advice:

  • Kill your television – 28 hours/week
  • Turn money into time – especially important for people with kids
  • Eat and sleep and exercise. Above all else!

You meet a lot of people in this life.

Many are angry, most are anxious, and some are clueless. Few are content, very few care about others more than they care about themselves.

As you get older, your radar gets better and your time becomes precious. You narrow down the number of people in your life to only the good ones, trying as hard as you can to double down on the time you spend with them.
