Time is my most precious commodity.
It isn’t contacts, followers, friends, subscriptions, readers, link love, mentions, or people’s attention. It’s time. With time I can have all of these things. Extra money and amazing ideas are of little use without time.
The world is full of experts telling me how I should use my time. The problem, I’m told (by the experts with lots of free time), isn’t a lack of time but the use of the time I have. Actually, the issue is that everything I make is done around a full-time job.
Perhaps this is for good reason: It’s hard to understand medicine without standing where I am. So for now I’ll hammer out what I can between 5-7 am, after 9 pm, and when I’m blessed with a no-show.
I’m not one to make excuses but I do wonder what I could make with more time.
