What is the worth of your time?
First what is TIME?
Time is a relative term relative not only in terms of periodicity but also in terms of how one’s mind space values its relevance.
Over simplistically TIME is some slice of measureable period or moment.
Intrinsically, TIME is the mind space that relates with or occupies itself with whatever happens outside.
Mind space also includes how it relates with inward moment of thoughts and feelings as in rumination or remembrance or recapitulation.
Now what is worthiness?
Worthiness is again a relative term.
Worthiness is relative based on the ‘value measurement’ one uses to assess it.
The term ‘Value’ is again relative and very carelessly used to refer to too many things.
Literally, Value refers to some transactional measurable material, like money, goods, products etc.
Some people use the term value as connotation to refer to some regional or religious traditions or socio-cultural life style practices and habits
(Healthy, unhealthy, ritualistic, rational, culturally ingrained, socially preferred behavior patterns, ideas and ideals internalized through upbringing etc).
However relative these three terms TIME, WORTHINESS and VALUES may be, they also manifest in many ways how inter-related or interlinked they are.
Therefore, no slice of Time made by any civilization with all its Calendared celebration of festivities can claim with axiomatic certitude that this is the best or even a better approximation than the rest.
Similarly, no evaluation or quantification of Worthiness or value of Time can be universally applied.
Let them remain relative but let us relate in ways whereby we can enhance values and increase worthiness to time we spent.
To effect that enhancement all the three i.e. Time, Worthiness and value, it would be preferable that they manifest and prioritize to ensure through their usage and functionality the following:-
Good Quality of whatever is being used as trade off;
Sanity and Sense of balance in the way one deals with anything or anyone;
Adopting an attitude of Humanitarianism and Concern for all other species as well;
Evaluation of everything and everyone based in their intrinsic attributes and merits and their contextual relevance;
Observing with curiosity but without bias the march of evolution weaving it patterns of synthesis and create synergy;
Avoiding interpreting and extrapolating based on any specific preconceived perspectives; for, ultimately life is always lively and moving around unmindful of and unwilling to stop for any different reference points or measurement of time and values of worthiness or worthiness of values.
