There are 168 hours in a week.
Each week I work 38 hours in my job. That leaves me with 130 hours to play with. That's a hell of a lot of play time.
I created a bunch of different desktop backgrounds to remind you of these precious hours. I used the epic tool Canva to make these, feel free to download & use them. Or to make your own.
I enjoy mucking around with the calculations to output the greatest amount of free time. For instance, I average 6 hrs 15 minutes (6.25 hrs) of sleep a night. That takes 43 hours and 45 minutes out of my play time. Let's round that up for 44 hours (15 minute sleep in on Sunday maybe? ) and I have 86 hours left over.
86 hours! That's enough time to write 86 blog posts (according to my earlier blog here). Or run 17 marathons (at my 5 hr 56 minute pace). That's a lot of time.
But let's take into account the time I spend driving (1.5 hrs a day), preparing and eating food (1.5 hrs a day) and cleaning myself and my house (1.5 hrs a day) that's another 31 and a half hours gone from my equation.
54 hours once we take out the mandatory and the financial stability.
54 hours to spend with friends or family. 54 hours to create a new business or watch an entire series on Netflix. 54 hours to write a blog or a book or a screen play. 54 hours to learn a new skill or hone an old one.
How do you spend your 168 hours?
