The Time You Have
An interesting video has been making the rounds in social media. The video, uploaded to YouTube by ZeFrank, uses jelly beans to evaluate how we use the time we have. Drawing on data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the video breaks down the way the average American uses their life time, with one bean representing one day’s worth of time: 8,477 beans for sleeping, 1,635 for cooking, eating, and drinking, 3,202 beans for working, 1,099 beans spent commuting, 2,676 for watching television, and 1,576 for household chores. After all of these basics are “deducted,” we’re left with just under 3,000 jelly beans (days) to accomplish everything else. The video concludes by asking what you’ll do with that time. It’s a powerful reminder to make every moment count. Enjoy the video.
