Motto Magazine’s purpose: Motto helps people make smart and informed decisions about how we are spending our lives. Most of us have been given roughly 30,000 days to live on Earth. How do you want to spend those days?
In Can Life Really Be Balanced? at Your Life. Organized., Monica Ricci does some math:
Total hours in a week: 168
Subtract hours for the following:
Sleep: (7 hours average per night) 49
Home & life maintenance: 40 (this encompasses everything from laundry to getting dressed to running errands, to washing the car, to grocery shopping, and more)
That adds up to 149 hours of your week.
This chart is from the American Time Use Survey 2006:
Laura Stack, the Productivity Pro summarizes some of the results of the American Time Use Survey 2006.
Timeanddate.com provides a variety of interesting date calculators. You can use the Duration Calculator to enter your birthday as the start date and today’s date as the end date to determine how many days you’ve lived. Subtract that number from the approximate 30,000 days mentioned above for an estimate of days remaining. Using them well is what it’s all about.
