5 spare units of time
The other morning on Radio 4 they were talking about what people would do if they could reclaim 30 minutes of their lives.
This is a thought provoking question and challenges one to focus on what one cares about and what is really important in life.
In our normal hectic lives so much of our time is wasted on the unimportant and trivial, but questioning what one would do with an extra 30 minutes helps to crystallise the things that really matter.
With the uncertainty created in the legal profession by the Jackson reforms there has probably never mean a more important time to think these things through. Life is precious and every moment should be lived to the full.
With my extra 30 minutes, I would probably check to see if I had any new text messages, update my Facebook status and possibly play another level of Angry Birds.
