How many time-traveling movies have there been where we can dream about going back and changing one little thing? We would tell ourselves to invest in Google or to talk to the girl or to run away.
There are plenty of could-haves and should-have-beens in our past. If I had a time machine, I would travel back in time and take all of the naps I refused to take when I was a kid. Maybe, then, I wouldn’t be so damn exhausted all the time as an adult.
Interested in time travel? Meet here last Thursday at 7pm.
Unfortunately, time machines aren’t real. Time travel hasn’t been invented. Or if it has, no one has told me. That’s way above my clearance.
Marty Rubin said, “Time does not pass, it continues.” Since we’re dealing with a linear concept of time, there are a few things we must consider.
Where Are the Time Travelers?
Right now, you may be seething at your computer as you read this post. How dare I burst your bubble and tell you that time travel isn’t real. I know, I know. It could exist. But if you’re not going to listen to me, perhaps you’ll listen to Stephen Hawking.
He once asked the question: “If time travel is possible, where are the tourists from the future?”
After all, we have social media at our fingertips. We have video-streaming capabilities on our cell phones.
If a time machine appeared and someone from the year 3000 appeared, there would be video evidence.
I used a time machine to travel back in time to Mount Rushmore before it was carved. Its natural beauty was unpresidented.
Sure, we’ve seen the photos online where it’s the 1920s or 1940s and someone’s walking around with what appears to be a cell phone or a Bluetooth headset or something. But those can be easily explained: Photoshop.
The harsh reality is something that we have to accept. If time travel existed, we’d be seeing some visitors around Sherman Country by now. After all, they’d want to come back to where it all started. They’d want to see how a pole barn was turned into a barndominium. And the ones that exist in 3000 are likely the ones that were built now. Why? They’re that strong.
You could prove us wrong, but that would require you to time travel. And I think I’ve established that doesn’t exist. So, you’ll just have to trust me when I say that the pole barns we’re building in Kansas, Minnesota, and NW Wisconsin are capable of greatness.
Waste Your Time Wisely
There’s a saying: time is precious, waste it wisely. This is absolutely the truth. Each and every day, we waste time assuming that it’s no big deal. However, there is no time machine. If we waste too much time, we’ll never get it back. And then what?
Often, we don’t realize that we’ve wasted our time until something happens. We miss a deadline. Or we lose a loved one. Suddenly we realize that the time is gone and we can’t get it back.
Hands down, 6:30 is the best time on the clock.
We have to stop wasting our time. On the TV, on the phone, on the couch.
We have to be with the ones we love. We have to focus on what’s important to us.
If you have figured out how to make the most of every day, by all means, share it with me. I have yet to meet anyone who isn’t wasting their time. I’m trying to waste my time more wisely, but it’s hard. Sometimes, I’m just not motivated to get off the couch. Especially on the weekends.
Since You Can’t Go Back to the Past…
So, here’s what we’ve learned from this blog post. And yes, I’m actually going to recap. It’s about time, I know.
Time travel doesn’t exist. There’s no magic time machine that will give us a re-do when we don’t make the most of an opportunity or spend enough time with a loved one.
We have today. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is not guaranteed. What that means is that we have to stop wasting our time.
Leo Christopher said, “there’s only one thing more precious than our time, and that’s who we spend it on.”
This means that it’s time to pause and take a look at your life. Are you using your time wisely? Are you choosing to focus your time on the right people?
Yesterday I ate a clock. It was very time consuming. Especially when I went back for seconds.
With no time machine parked in your garage, you have to make the best decisions the first time around. Remember, there are no do-overs.
Sherman Country Is Quite A Gem
Where you choose to live matters and Sherman Country is quite a gem. If you have any kind of plot of land, there are ways to make the most of it.
Do your research. Many homeowners who have bought in communities and HOA neighborhoods are miserable. Mass-built homes have countless problems.
You don’t want to deal with those. Remember, you should be wasting your time wisely. Fixing everything that the builders should have done right from the beginning is not a wise use of your time.
That’s why we’re going to make a recommendation. Explore the benefits of a barndominium. At Sherman Pole Buildings, we can create a pole barn that is your residential home. It can be as big as you want it to be. And it can be customized to include the entire layout you’ve always dreamed of.
Pole barns are built to withstand all of the elements. And the way that we create them allows you to get everything you’ve always wanted without spending a fortune.
Since you can’t go back to the past, you have to be confident in every decision that you make in the here and now. Sherman Country is filled with people who have confidently chosen to build a pole barn. They haven’t looked back. They’re only looking forward. Some may even say that their future is so bright that they have to wear shades. We’ll tell you what. If you buy a Sherman pole barn, we’ll even provide you with a pair of shades.
