If You Are Needed, You Are Important

“Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it. ”

— M. Scott Peck

“Dad! Can you help me carry my pumpkin?”

“My pumpkin’s dirty!”

“Dad! Will you help me scoop out the guts?”

“There’s a bug on my pumpkin, Dad!”

“Honey! Get the slug off!!! Ewww, there’s another one!”

“Oh yuck! My pumpkin is full of mold.”

“Dad! I kind of murdered the gourd.”

“Ohh… An entire bottle of Elmer’s glue tipped over on the dining room table.”

It may not feel like it when you’re frazzled, and being pulled in every direction imaginable, but that’s the feeling of being important.

Someone needs you.

If you’re needed, you’re important. If you’re important, your time is important. If your time is important, then giving your time away to help people is even more important. Because your time will make a difference.

Use your time wisely.

Yesterday’s gifts of time … Answered every one of the above-referenced calls for help … Also, changed the reader board at my daughter’s school. 

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
