Athletes understand time better than most. They understand the cumulative effect of time, that it stacks up. That it passes. That you work really hard, invest the time and accomplish something worthwhile.
So, if time stacks up and you’re stacking empty boxes, all you’ll ever have are empty boxes no matter how creatively you stack them. If you’re stacking bricks though, you could create something really worthwhile.
It bears thinking about, all this time that we’re living, are we stacking empty boxes, or bricks?
