There are just 3 days left until school’s out for the Summer.
For the last couple of years, since my eldest started school, I’ve promised myself I’ll schedule the holidays to ensure that we make the best use of the time.
Guess what? I never have.
“Time is the most valuable thing that a man can spend.” ― Diogenes Laërtius
I’ve been thinking a lot about waste lately. Yes, I always think about food waste and packaging waste, but now I’m thinking more about how I’m using my time. Time indeed is the most valuable thing. And as I get older it is becoming more valuable to me.
I was reading a blog the other day and someone mentioned they had just 7 summers left with their child before they became independent. Having it quantified like that made me think now is the time to get organised.
“For every minute spent in organizing, an hour is earned.” -Benjamin Franklin
This doesn’t mean that I am packing a schedule fit to burst. No rather I’m prioritising. What do the Kids and I really want to do this summer? And how, with a little bit of planning, can I achieve this?
