The wise person understands there is a vast difference between the time of an event and the event of the time.
Both are important.
Being on time for an event is a show of respect for others, and a way of honoring the importance of the event.
However, knowing the event of the time is even more important.
For example, a bridesmaid can be on time for the event (the wedding), but if she thinks the event of the time is about her pretty dress and hairdo and her moment of glory in walking down the aisle, she has drastically missed the event of the time!
The event of the time dictates your priorities and responses.
The event of the time will often require you to put your schedule and your plans on hold and deal with what is at hand in the moment.
And what is even more important, there are those rare momentous times that if you’re late for them or miss the event of the time you’ve missed the opportunity of a lifetime.
The ONE THING for today: There is the time of an event and there is an event of the time. The wise person is aware of the difference and acts accordingly.
