Your Most Important Asset

spending time

“Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.” – Rick Warren

You work hard to create a good life for your family. With a nice house, some money in the bank and a plan for the future, you probably count these things as some of your most important assets.

And they are. Each one is incredibly important to establishing stability and comfort.

But just as important as what you provide, there’s one more thing that makes a positive difference in the lives of your loved ones. It can’t be seen on a bank statement or in a retirement calculator, but provides just as much warmth and security. It’s your time. Your most important asset is the time you give to others – and to yourself:

You most important asset is….
– The time you give to help with homework, and
– reading to your child.

You most important asset is….
– The time you give to listen to your partner’s struggle, and
– enjoying a quiet evening together when the smartphone, tablets and laptops are put away.

You most important asset is….
– The time you give running errands for your elderly parent, and
– listening to old family stories, which you’ve heard a 100 times before.

You most important asset is….
– The time you give lending a hand to your neighbor’s home improvement project, and
– keeping your friend’s plants watered while they are on vacation.

You most important asset is….
– The time you give you to put down your to-do list, and
finding stillness in your place of peace.

You most important asset is….
– The time you give sharing your unique talents with the world, and
– showing kindness to everyone you encounter.

You most important asset is….
– The time you give by changing someone’s life for the better, and
– saving a dose of medicine for yourself.
