Time is a Funny Thing

Sanjoy Kumar Malik offered up this interesting perspective on time and age that should give us all a little perspective on things.

Someone became a CEO at 25, and died at 50, while another became a CEO at 50 and lived to 90 years.

Obama retires at 55, while Trump starts at 70. Everyone in this world works based on their “time zone”​.

Everyone is running in their own time. Life is about waiting for the right moment to act.


We are not late we are not early.

We are very much ON TIME in our TIME ZONE.

I’m sure that some won’t like the political example much, but the point is still the same. Time is a fickle thing and none of us know how much time we have available to us. We also don’t know what doors will open to us in the future. We see that over and over in life.

I love Sanjoy’s suggestion of relaxing. Although, I’d suggest that you relax when you come to worrying about the future, but you work your butt off towards something you’re passionate about accomplishing. Don’t worry so much about the titles you get, the pay you receive, but do worry about the lives you impact and what you’re able to accomplish. That will lead to more happiness and success than those who worry about things they can’t control.
