What Can We Do With 1% Of Our Day?

Fifteen minutes is approximately 1% of the day. Ever since I became aware of this fact, something has changed.

Because fifteen minutes is not just 1% of your day, it is 1% of your life — because each day is all the life you’ve got.

We are what we repeatedly do.

Watch three hours of Netflix every night? That’s 12% of your life wasted, congratulations.

Focus on how and why you spend your time, it’s the only truly finite resource we have. There is the right time for work, for play, for doing nothing, and even for wasting time.

The key word here is balance.
