It has occurred to me that I discuss my personal goings-on a bit less than my fellow News-Sentinel columnists do, but in the interest of partial disclosure, I must confess that life has gotten significantly more difficult for me in the past few months. I’ve started a new job that requires many long, grueling, thankless hours in an undesirable environment. The possibility of complete physical and mental collapse is now very real.

I’ve always been a “buy the ticket, take the ride” kind of guy, but the fact of the matter is that these past few months have given me a renewed appreciation for the most precious of commodities: time. It is truly far more valuable than money, and I’ve concluded that to waste it in any fashion is an unpardonable sin. I don’t want to grow to be an old man, filled with regret over the countless hours I’ve squandered fruitlessly. Every moment must be seized. Every minute must count for something.
