Minute mentality

“I’ll be right back, in just a minute,” smiled the TV weatherman. And 60 seconds later, he returned as promised.

How do we spend our minutes each day? We’ve got lots of them, you know…60 in each hour, and 1,440 every day. But do we really concentrate on spending each minute, or do we waste too many?

Before clocks got invented, minutes didn’t mean much. But once folks agreed on standard units of time, and synchronized their clocks, the world ran lots more efficiently. Students showed up for school at the right time, and adult clocked into jobs where they were paid by the hour.

What are your favorite minutes during the day? How you choose to spend them can determine the quality of life you live.
