Do you know the value of your time? How often does it flow through your fingers? How often do you devote it to things that are completely unimportant? Do you realize that it is you who gives meaning to various matters and therefore, more or less consciously, you choose what you devote your time to?
Please read the following inspiring story about the value of time. This is our perverse form of value coaching - in this case, the value attributed to time.
Coaching on the value of time
Imagine that a certain bank transfers 86,400 $ to your account every morning. The balance remaining from one day is not transferred to the next day. Anything that has not been used on a given day will disappear from the account on the same night. What would you do then?
Of course, you withdraw every penny every day !!!
Each of us has such a bank. It’s TIME.
Every morning you are given 86,400 seconds as a gift. What you have not used up meaningfully is written off to you as a loss every night. There is no balance transfer. It is also not possible to pay anything “in advance”.
Every morning a completely new account is opened for you. Every night, the remains of the previous day are burned. If you haven’t used up your entire deposit => your loss. You can’t go back. You cannot borrow anything from “tomorrow”.
You can only live off what is given to you at that moment. Invest it wisely so that your profits appear in the form of health, happiness, and inner peace!
Your Life Clock is ticking. Make the best of it.

Coach's question: How do you consciously use your time?
Be thankful for every moment that is given to you. Appreciate it, especially if you could spend it with someone you love. And please remember that TIME waits for no one. But it’s up to you to decide how you use it.
