These words are as relevant today as they were almost 2,000 years ago when Seneca wrote them. We hear: 'Life is too short' all the time but Seneca tells us that it is not short; we have enough time, we just do not use it well.
We can all do something to ensure we use our time well. When it comes to our work or business, we can all take a second look to see whether our processes are as efficient as they could be. When looking at how something is done, ask yourself whether it could be done more quickly and easily. If you can find out how to do that, you will be able to spare up more time which you can then spend doing more of what you love. So, you can also be at peace knowing your life is 'well invested', as Seneca put it.
