Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of. One man gets only a week’s value out of a year while another man gets a full year’s value out of a week.
Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.
Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.
Everything comes to him that hustles while he waits.
Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, The last of life, for which the first was made; Our times are in his hand who saith, “A whole I planned, Youth shows but half; trust God: See all, nor be afraid!
Louis E. Boone
I am definitely going to take a course on time management… just as soon as I can work it into my schedule.
Jeffery J. Mayer
If you haven’t got the time to do it right, when will you find the time to do it over?
If you want to make good use of your time, you’ve got to know what’s most important and then give it all you’ve got.”
Does it matter?
Last night, I chose to work on my “to do” list. A sure sign that my four day weekend was over. I also chose to set the timer and read and respond to slicers . . . and I met some totally new folks that slice in a different time frame. For me, that was the perfect balance of “wants” and “needs”.
Did I get everything on my list done? Of course not! But my list is for today and I have a great start on it . . . which is usually impossible on a full day of professional development. Choosing to work in advance was my choice, no complaints, just an opportunity to alleviate today’s pressures!
What choices do you make?
