The Clock – Dave Allen

“We spend our lives on the run: we get up by the clock, eat and sleep by the clock, get up again, go to work – and then we retire. And what do they give us? A clock.”

Dave Allen was an innovative comedian in the UK comedy scene during the 70’s.  When other stand-ups were still doing mother-in-law jokes, Dave produced so much thought provoking material and was not afraid to offend.

This routine always makes me think about how are most valuable commodity is time.  As Dave’s routine basically says are life is ruled ‘by the clock’.

How much time did I waste this week?

How much time did you waste this week?

We all need to look at how we spend are time – we can’t buy anymore than the 24 hours allocated in the day.

Once are time is up that is it.

So use it wisely.
