Made up of time

Our life is made up of time; our days are measured in hours, our pay measured by those hours, our knowledge is measured by years. We grab a few quick minutes in our busy day to have a coffee break. We rush back to our desks, we watch the clock, we live by appointments. And yet your time eventually runs out and you wonder in your heart of hearts if those seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years and decades were being spent the best way they possibly could. In other words, if you could change anything, would you?

A nossa vida é feita de tempo. Nossos dias são medidos pelas horas, nosso salário é calculado por essas horas, o nosso conhecimento é acumulado pelos anos. Agarramos uns minutinhos do nosso dia sempre ocupado para fazer uma pausa para o café. Voltamos a correr para nossa mesa de trabalho, olhamos para o relógio, vivemos em função dos compromissos. Mesmo assim, quando esse tempo enfim acaba, bem lá no fundo perguntamos se esses segundos, minutos, horas, dias, semanas, meses, anos e décadas foram gastos da melhor maneira possível. Por outras palavras, se pudesse mudar, arriscaria a fazê-lo?
