Google the word “time” and there will be many links that mean many things. The first link will be the actual time and date for Harrison, AR. Strange how the internet knows where my computer is located.
The second will be a link to TIME magazine. Interesting fact about TIME magazine is that the first edition was published on March 3, 1923. It was designed as a newsmagazine which summarized and organized the news so that “busy men” could stay informed. Here 90 years later we are still a culture that needs our news summarized and organized because of limited time but we now view the most summarized source of news coming from the internet AND women are now busy as well.
The balance of page 1 links has to do with the official United States time and the World Clock. I find it interesting that the world’s nations all use a calendar that measures time based on the birth of Christ.
Our real estate contracts are driven by time. Notice the number of times “time” is referenced. Reviewing the “Real Estate Contract (Residential)” alone references time in virtually every section from the number of days to complete a task, to item #29 defining the Arkansas Central time and date, to the actual time the contract was signed by all parties.
As a result of these random thoughts on time I have concluded that the secret of good time management is good time habits. Quoting William Penn: “Time is what we want most, but what we use the worst.”
The scripture reference for this blog has to be: “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV)
