Time Management

“You must be ruthless with your time.  Learn to say no.  Having the courage to say no to the little things in life will give you the power to say yes to the big things.  Shut the door to your office when you need a few hours to work on that big case.  Don’t pick up the phone every time it rings.  It is there for your convenience, not the convenience of others.  Ironically, people will respect you more when they see that you are a person who values his time.  They will realize that your time is precious and they will value it.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“Busy, productive people are highly efficient with their time – they must be in order to survive.  Being an excellent time manager doesn’t mean that you must become a workaholic.  On the contrary, time mastery allows you more time to do the things you love to do, the things that are truly meaningful to you.  Time mastery leads to life mastery.  Guard time well.  Remember, it’s a non-renewable resource.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“It never ceases to amaze me the precious time we spend chasing the squirrels around our brains, playing out our dramas, worrying about unwanted facial hair, seeking adoration, justifying our actions, complaining about slow Internet connections, dissecting the lives of idiots, when we are sitting in the middle of a full-blown miracle that is happening right here, right now.” ~ Jen Sincero, You Are a Badass

“You don’t really pay for things with money, you pay for them with time. In five years, I’ll have put enough away to buy that vacation house we want. Then I’ll slow down. That means the house will cost you five years – one-twelfth of your adult life. Translate the dollar value of the house, car, or anything else into time, and then see if it’s still worth it.” ~ Charles Spezzano, Author

“The important task rarely must be done today, or even this week…But the urgent task calls for instant action…The momentary appeal of these tasks seems irresistible and important, and they devour our energy.  But in the light of time’s perspective, their deceptive prominence fades; with a sense of loss we recall the vital tasks we pushed aside.  We realize we’ve become slaves to the tyranny of the urgent.” ~ Charles Hummel
