As we grow older, we notice that time seems to slip by at an incredibly fast rate. We even make comments about how it goes much faster than when we were younger. We know that time is moving at the same rate, but we can explain this away with math. When you are 5, one year represents 20 percent of your life, at 50, 1 year represents 2 percent of your life to that point. To break it down further, one year or 365 days is to the 50-year-old, as 36.5 days are to a 5-year-old. That makes a difference.
All this math and all these calculations do not change the fact that time is our most precious resource. It is finite and nonrenewable. We must learn to protect it and use it wisely. You never know when you will run out of time. You do or should recognize, you are getting closer to the end than the beginning.
