The Time Of Your Life
     Some times to consider....

The time of your life is the context for the success you seek. From birth to death is the time that you have to experience your success.

  • Sometimes we spend our time achieving success.
  • Sometimes we spend our time achieving someone else's success.
  • Sometimes we spend our time just reacting to whatever happens.
  • Sometimes we don't know or can't decide how to spend our time.
  • Sometimes we waste our time.

How have you spent your time?

According to the United States Government's Central Intelligence Agency - the CIA, the life expectancy from birth for an average male born in the United States is 75.29 years.

It's a nicely convenient figure.

It means that the average US male lives for 27,500 days.

And then that's it. The life of the average male born in the United States ends.

Sometimes, the life of the average male born in the United States ends after achieving success. Sometimes it ends with partial success. Sometimes it ends with very little success at all.

Sometimes, the average male born in the United States realises very early in life that he has a wonderful life ahead of him, and that he can create just about whatever he wants with his life. Sometimes, he realises what "the time of your life" means. To him, it means the best part of 27,500 days to do exactly what he wants with his life.

Sometimes, the average male born in the United States doesn't realise until later in life that he has a wonderful life, and that he can create just about whatever he wants with it.

Sometimes, he doesn't realise what the time of his life means until he's past his thirtieth birthday. But he maybe still appreciates that he has some 16,000 days left of his life.

Sometimes, he doesn't realise what the time of his life means until he's reached his fifty-fifth birthday. He maybe realises then that over 20,000 of his 27,500 days are forever gone, but that he still has 7,420 days left of his life. Sometimes, he hopes it's enough.

Sadly, sometimes - some would say oftentimes - the average male born in the United States never realises what the time of your life means. Sometimes, the average male born in the United States wastes his 27,500 days - one day at a time.

Most of us waste time, at times. But, if you waste too much of it, you'll find yourself approaching the end of your life regretting what may have been. Life is a wonderful gift. It's there for you to enjoy. But in the sense that we know it, it is limited by time. Whatever meaning you search for in life must be found in that limited time. Whatever purpose your life is to have must be discovered or created in that limited time. Whatever success you wish to experience must be experienced within that limited time.

Time is important. It is the context for your life. If you aren't using it, you're losing it. Value it. Use it wisely, and use it efficiently.

Of course, you may not be an average male born in the United States, but you may still wish to work out your own "time of your life", the actual number of days of your life. The article "Calculate Lifespan" may help
