Your time is precious, far too precious to waste.
You, me, everyone. We all come with an expiry date, yet the way many of us carry on you’d think we had all the time in the world.
Sorry Louis Armstrong, great song, but I simply don’t agree.
And one of the biggest time sucks today is the Internet.
Here’re some facts to chew on:
“…more content is created now in 48 hours than was from the beginning of time until 2003”
– Eric Shmidt from Google.
Youtube: 48 hours of video uploaded every minute.
– Source Youtube blog.
These facts are a little dated, so you can bet your bottom dollar that current figures are even more mind blowing.
There’s more information online than you can possibly imagine and as a result you can waste a lot of your precious, finite time trying to find the gold amongst the rubbish.
And that’s why I believe free is just too freaking expensive.
Online you’ve got to kiss a lot of free frogs before you find your prince or princess.
It’s far less time consuming to go to the shop and buy your prince or princess.
Not a great metaphor I agree, but I’m sure you get my point.
Let me also ask you this question:
How committed are you to the information you got for free online Vs information you paid for?
If you’ve been a Qigong Daily subscriber for a while, you’ll probably remember the free 21 day online Qigong course I used to offer?
Well let me tell you, the ‘stick’ rate for that was considerably less than for my paid for 22 week Qigong Secrets Home Study Course.
And let me be frank…
The information in the free course is so good that once I’ve a spare nano-second I will be re-releasing it as a paid for course.
In my experience, the value of information is directly proportional to what I’ve had to pay for it.
And there’re two ways you can pay…
With your time or with your money. I know which I prefer.
There’s so much to consider here like:
- It’s okay to collect information if you want to be a scholar.
- Why most information just ends up as a growing list of things to do which just makes you feel overwhelmed.
- How as humans we seem programmed to seek out new rather than go deep with what we’ve got.
And so on.
But life is short and time is precious, as Benjamin Franklin put it:
“Lost time is never found again”
So I’m going to wrap up for today by saying a great way to invest your precious time and money is on my new book: Qigong Daily – 365 Big Ideas To Transform Your Qigong And Your Life.
For the next 365 days you can spend a few minutes each morning contemplating a new Qigong meditation designed specifically to help you maintain and deepen your practice.
I’ve 5 copies left (at the time of writing this) and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

Enjoy your practice.
