As we get old sometimes we need to take a minute!

So we age, we get lazy, and often forget the simple things that can help us out. I am still pretty fit for an old man but I am always very active around the house (well….. my wife keeps a “Honey Do” list that keeps me active I should say).

Think about all the extra time we have often times just trying to think of something to do. Here are a few questions that just might help you keep active by challenging yourself to these:

  1. Can you walk one city block in a minute?
  2. Can you walk up the stairs in an average 3 story building in a minute?
  3. Can you jump a rope 50 times in one minute?

These are all seemingly easy to accomplish…. But I must admit some of us are not in as good a shape as we should be.

Infinite minutes that exist…..

We always seem to think that we just do not have the time to do everything we need…. Well lets take a look at some examples of times life steals minutes to allow us to catch up, but yet these minutes are always wasted without us ever looking back.

  1. I’m going to sit down at my computer for a minute (yeah, there goes an extra 20 minutes with that statement every time)
  2. Yes dear I’ will be there in a minute (now… we did not say which minute it would be did we?)
  3. The biscuits are in the oven they will be ready in a minute (just a build up line to insure we are real hungry in 20 minutes when they are really ready to eat)
  4. You never take a minute to talk to me

Just remember… these little minutes add up fast. I think we can all find at least an extra hour in our day. If one simply focuses on sticking to just the minutes we say we need…. We would all have time to complete those things we avoid by saying “I didn’t have time to get that done”!

So… we love the minute but it is frequently abused.

Many times we seem to lose interest in the true value of our friendship with the minute. How often can we recollect just when we actually used our friend the minute as a scapegoat? I will list just a few times that I am personally guilty of:

  1. My pencil is somewhere! I had it a minute ago.
  2. I don’t have time right now! Wait…. till I have a minute.
  3. Let me take a minute to get reorganized. (we all know it was minutes fault in the first place)
  4. Who has a minute to listen to what I have to say?(if they take a minute…. they end up giving me 15)
  5. When asked to do one of those many chores that the wife claims will just take a minute…. we can always fall back on “Some things just can’t be done in a minute!”

So… with those examples to ponder I’m sure you can remember several of your own… Hang on to those thoughts because soon we will enable comments so you all can share those with me.
