Wait a moment...

There are 31,536,000 seconds in a year. A moment has been defined as a short undefined period in time. In early England , it was defined as 1/40th of an hour - 90 seconds. But that definition doesn't jibe with the modern understanding of the word, in which a brief period of time would typically be taken to be 1 to no more than 3 seconds. For purposes of this discussion, let's be conservative (in the apolitical sense) and assume 3 seconds is a moment.

That means if you are 30 years old, you have enjoyed 315,360,000 moments in your life. How well have you used them?

Take a moment to think about it...
