Time Is Free, But It’s Priceless, Drew Hunthausen, Blind Motivational Speaker

“Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back.” – Harvey MacKay

Have you ever spent just a few minutes reflecting on the way you spend your time? From the moment your alarm clock sounds and you climb out of bed, to the late hour when you shed your clothes, exhausted, looking forward to a good night’s rest. What have you accomplished? Is there balance in your day to day routine, or is it consumed with too much work, or too much play, or maybe too much of not much? I’m sure all of you have heard the saying “time flies”. While that seems to be more and more true the older you get, the good news is that you are the pilot of this time flying machine.

My friends, the only “time” that is truly real is this moment. Often, we spend an enormous amount of our day consumed by past regrets and worries of the future. Both are fantasy.

I challenge you to focus on the now. Even take a minute and listen to your heartbeat in gratitude for this minute, this second of life. What are you going to do today, this week to engage in the present, while letting go of worry, regret, and fear?

I encourage you to think about this, maybe next time you are on your computer or smart phone. Be intentional. Put the phone away, turn off the electronic distractions, and engage in that moment, whether with a friend, spouse, your kids, a co-worker, or even a stranger. Seize the moment and be present to those around you!

This Friday I will be interviewing someone who I truly admire and has made a difference in so many lives. This man is a true example of seizing the day both personally and in the benefit of those he serves. I hope you will join me at 11:30 A.M. PST as I interview Dave San Filippo, the director of Disabled Student Services at California State University Long Beach for the past 40 years. I can’t express how much this man impacted my own life while I was in college, and cannot wait to let him share his brilliance and experience with you. Until then my friends, carper diem, always remembering that the best is yet to come!
