I realized that ever since I was a small child, I have tracked the use of my time like Donald Trump tracks his money. It’s been my most prized possession ever since I can remember. And to this day, I am probably one of the biggest time Nazi’s on the planet. Because, in the true startup sense of the word, I figured that when you spent time on the most important things, value would be generated. So if I optimized my time, my life would generate value (both monetarily and otherwise)
Except here’s the thing I realized. Both time and money are manmade concepts. Both of them are fictitious. Both of them are only used by humans to understand more abstract concepts which our brains can’t fully comprehend: Value and life.
All of which to say, neither of these things is the point. I used to think that if I managed my time the best way possible, I would somehow discover the meaning of life. That’s not true. That’s pretty much the same thing as saying if I generate and spend my money in the most efficient way possible, I will discover the meaning of life. Again, not true. I’m not saying that both aren’t important, and both don’t need to be managed (they do). I guess what I’m saying is, I used to think I knew the point, and now I’m saying no. I’m back to square one. That is definitely not the point.
I’m also saying that my appalling lack of money management skills is really harshing my vibe and I need to get on that, stat.
So really what I’m saying is that I have no idea what is the point. All I know is that I need to be less of a time Nazi, use some of those skills to manage my money better, and then…with our powers combined…figure out…what the hell I am doing with my life.
That’s pretty much where I am at right now.
