Spend your time wisely

I read this article from Quora. Just wanted to share to you:
Say a person is fortunate to live until the ripe old age of 75. That means they get 900 months on this earth to do ANYTHING they want. That’s right. ANYTHING. Especially the people who are capable, privileged, and free enough to read this online.

Say you are 25 right now, give or take a few years. That means 300 of those months are already gone. You now have somewhere between 0-600 left. How many, we don’t get to know.

0 at worst, 600 at best.

When I think about it in those terms, it really does go so fast.

Today happens to be the 7th day of this month, and the rest will likely fly by. 599. Next month will fly by too. 598.

For this month, how many days have you put aside to do what you love most - to do exactly what you feel you are here on this earth to do? How many hours even? Is there room on the calendar, or does it keep getting pushed back?

This month is 1/900 of your life. YOUR life! How much time will you spend it watching TV shows that aren’t even that enjoyable? Complaining? Arguing? Moping? Comparing yourself with others? Worrying about criticism? Avoiding failure? Hanging out with people who don’t want the best for you? Thinking about what you don’t have? Doing stuff you hate to buy useless shit that doesn’t mean anything in the grand scheme of life?

How long have you been living for some other day that will always remain as some other day?

Now, how much time this month will you spend in absolute bliss? As your highest self? In a place where you can honestly say there’s no place you’d rather be?

What really makes you tick? What freezes time? What makes you excited to get out of bed every day?

Four weeks pass. 597.

Four more. 596.

Oh, yeah, I was supposed to start doing that thing that day, but it slipped my mind and I put it off. 595.

Enough time has slipped by.

Today is Friday.
Do not let this weekend slip by without doing that thing.
Drop the shit that doesn’t matter.
Start now.

. . .

If you enjoyed this article, imagine what would happen if someone were to extend it to 200+ pages, then make it slightly more awesome. This new book represents over six years’ worth of my life experiences, insights, and ideas on creating a better way of living for all of us:

80's Music: Reliving the Past

I grew up in the 80's. Back then, the British New Wave music dominated the airwaves. The likes of Psychedelic Furs, The Cure, and the Smiths and their simple melodies and riffs that are not too metal unlike Led Zep of the 70's and Guns N Roses of the 90's. Not to heavy, not too pop. Listen and enjoy!

Bicycling: Getting lost in the Moment

Bicycling - the generic term of traveling from one point to another by using a two-wheeled contraption. Other people, define bicycling as a way of loosening oneself and just have fun. If you happen to take on the sport of cycling, you will find meaning to the phrase "getting lost in the moment". It doesn't matter if you are into road cycling, mountain biking, BMX, dirt jumping, or fixed gear, what matters is that you enjoy getting lost in the moment. An article in Psychology Today describes that getting lost in the moment is an effective way of tuning out distractions. By simply being aware of one's surroundings and noting the sights and sounds of nature, one can slip into a semi-meditative state.
Cycling offers one a chance to commune with the surrounding.
 Check out the instagram posts from users around the world and see why "getting lost" on two wheels is worth it!

All disciplines are welcome!

Pick up your bike, dust it off, and get lost in the moment.
