“But there never seems to be enough time, to do the things you want to do.”
~Time in a Bottle/Jim Croce
There is never enough time to do the things we want to do, so this weekend I did something completely different and unlike me: I took back time, and made it mine.
Work has consumed so much of my life, whether with client projects, free projects or my own projects. I’ve worked day and night, seven days a week, for as long as I can remember. I have probably sat on my sofa and watched TV or a movie less than 10 times in 10 years. I usually feel TV is a complete waste of my time (thanks, grandma. Sigh.)
This weekend, though, I finally came to the realization that my time is running out. I am always jumping through hoops for design clients, pulling all-nighters and working through weekends to meet deadlines, never allowing myself more than a brief moment to enjoy life.
I came to the realization this week that if I get hit by a bus tomorrow I’m going to be really, really pissed that I wasted so much time.
