🟦 What you and Taylor Swift have in common

will change the way you see time forever

Getting this one out at the literal last minute before Tuesday is over 😂

Better late than never, right?

Hope you enjoy!

You have the same 24 hours as Elon Musk.

Same 24 as Mother Theresa.

Same 24 as Mr. Beast.

Same 24 as Jane Austen.

Same 24 as Abraham Lincoln.

Same 24 as Leonardo Da Vinci.

Same 24 as Taylor Swift.

All 8,000,000,000 people currently on earth and the 100,000,000,000 estimated to have ever lived on earth.

Same 24. Same 24. Same 24.

I’m not suggesting you need to be like any of these people. (Though a few of them might be great role models)

But whether your love or despise these names, isn’t it a wake up call to see what other humans like you are able to produce and experience in the exact same amount of time that you have?

Whether they’re:

  • Preparing to colonize Mars

  • Abolishing slavery

  • Building 100 wells in Africa

  • Winning the Nobel Peace Prize

  • Selling over 30 million books

  • Leading the highest grossing music tour ever

  • Or creating Earth’s most famous painting ever (the Mona Lisa)

It’s all mind-blowingly impressive, right?

Of course, the most natural thought to pop in your head right now would be, “Sheesh, I’m such a failure. I’ve never done anything like that, and probably never will”.

Feel free to let that little voice inside your head know that they’re fired.

Cause that’s not the point.

Focus on the idea that amazing things can happen in your 24 hours, too.

So, how do you use your 24 hours?

About a year ago I stumbled upon this Tweet:

Have you ever actually mapped out where your hours go, like Eve did here?

I hadn’t.

So I tried this exercise in a simple note on my phone, using the same colored emojis.

When I was done, I counted up all the squares.

They didn’t even add up to 24 😂

Clearly, I was super out of touch with how I actually spend my time, because I still had 3 hours unaccounted for.

Where were those 3 hours going?

Scrolling my phone? Binging shows? Daydreaming?

Honestly, probably all of the above.

But my next step was to create a new emoji chart of what, in my ideal world, the hours of my day would look like.

It looked similar in some ways, pretty different in others.

How different would yours look?

Try it!

Take 5 mins and map out what your average day currently looks, making sure to account for all 24 hours.

Then do it again for your ideal day.

Notice the differences.

What’s one change you could make to be a bit closer to the ideal day today?

Cause in the famous words of the Lorax:

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothings going to get better. It’s not.
