Day 249: Pastime

PastimeHow do you spend your pastime? Have you taken into account how your life is spent? Most of us are only certain about two (2) things, that is death and taxes, everything else (we think) is wrapped around survival. Or is it? Let’s have a look;

As of 2014 the life expectancy in America is 78.6 years. If you divide that up, this is how the average person spends their lifetime.

How much time is spent throughout your life working on yourself? 0. How much time throughout your life do you spend doing that which is best for all? 0. How much time do you spend throughout your life treating others as you would like to be treated? 0.
