Buying Time

Life, People Add comments


Hello once more…

All of us have equal time frame, 24 hours a day.

We have got a job, our personal life, we are responsible for our daily chores, and there is no way to get everything done. Buy yourself some time, is to delegate your chores, hire some one to do some task, and learn to cut corners. Buy time is to save time.

Let's talk about our daily life. For those travel by car, as we park our cars, what are we suppose to do?

Scratch parking tickets, either for half an hour or an hour, and place it on your dashboard.

After you have done your tasks, maybe banking transaction, meeting your friend, shopping, buying your groceries, etc, then you move on. Sometimes, you will not feel at ease, while you are doing your things. If the 1/2 hour or 1 hour is over, you will run to your car to scratch a new parking ticket.

We are actually buying time. You buy 1/2 hour or 1 hour, to do your thing. If you don't scratch your tickets and place it on your dashboard, or you have exceeded the time frame of the ticket, you will get a summon, a penalty – another ticket for you to pay.

Are we not actually buying time? buying the time of our lives, buying our own time.

The definition of  "buy" is to get/purchase something, to obtain something.

We are spending and losing time each day, but we are buying time!  

After we have scratched those tickets, it can't be used anymore, and we threw them away to the dustbin.  

By the way, these are prepaid tickets, pay before use. Make sure you put them in your car, If you misplace them, you will have to buy again. 

Can we abolish this parking tickets method and save more trees? Let us park our cars, do our activities at ease, and drive on, move on with our lives. 

Nowadays, we are talking about saving the environment, throw rubbish into appropriate recycle bins- bottles, cans and paper bins. Less trees, more heat. Don't you feel the heat these days? 

When trees cut down to expand land, trees will let out the carbon dioxide that has been stored upon the photosynthesis process. Each particle of carbon dioxide released to the air adds to the greenhouse gases, and result to global warming.
