You Only Have 7 Minutes and 55 Seconds, Clock is Ticking!

Last Update: May 25, 2021

Are you one of those people that are constantly under pressure to finish a task? Do you plan everything under a specific time frame? Are you one of those that have your calendar with a lot of deadline notes for each day?


Have you ever felt that if nothing happens within the next 7 minutes and 55 seconds, you will explode? Time is a commodity that we all live by, and most of the time it defines us in how we want to do things. If we don't get this or that in a certain time frame, we just feel that we have failed.

Do you always feel like time is running out on you? All that you attempted to do has not worked at all. In one of my posts I shared a quote where it said, "It's not about the amount of hours, but the work you do in those hours that you have".

We all have 24 hours in the day, but it's about how you work during those hours. I have a day job, but I do my best to put my efforts in the hours that I have available. Let's not ever pretend that we can do it all in one day, specially those that have kids, but we should never fall prey of the time.

Use your time wisely, but don't become a slave of time, because you'll end up stressed out and you won't accomplish anything at all.

Use every day, every hour, every minute and even every second wisely. Even if your stopwatch goes to zero, there's a few milliseconds left for one more task.

There's always something that we can do, if you can't find something to do, then keep looking. Don't play the waiting game. Your success requires all your brain cells and physical strength to climb that obstacle mountain so we can reach our destination.


We will get there one way or the other but we will get it!


Every day is a new day with another 24 hours. I understand that you as well as me need at least 8 hours of sleep to recharge our biological clock. So it's up to us on how we are using the remaining 16 hours of the day for a productive workday.

Of all the guys, Loki wish us success, and I know Thor wishes us the same. Success comes only after hard work, persistence, determination, and proper use of your time.

I am one of those people but the good thing, Eugene is that when the alarm that I set goes off AND I'm not yet finished my task, I calmly put more time to do so

Yes, I have to work with time but I don't allow myself to be controlled by it.

Awesome blog.

Simone you said it, we should not allow time to control us.

Quite engaging. Thank you for sharing.
It's so easy to lose count of time, and you keep wondering, "what did I achieve today?"

Yes Muslimah, that's why is so important to focus on quality work instead of worrying about getting done at certain time.

That’s a great post, Eugene!

I’m very pleased to see no mention of the misleading concept of ‘management’ of time. What we must manage are the things we do in our time.

That's it Richard, learn to manage the things we do and not much trying to manage the time. The minutes, hours and days go so fast that we don't even realize our day is done and gone.

I appreciate more so now how precious time is and that you really have to maximize it with the things that are pertinent to life because when it is gone it is gone. Thanks for making sure I keep to schedule Eugene.

You're welcome Hugh, we need to be conscious that after time is gone, is gone for good and not coming back unless we have a time machine 🤣
