Time

“Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to used during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course? Each of us has such a bank, its name is time. Every morning, it credits you 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off at a lost, whatever of this you failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against ‘tomorrow.’ You must live in the present on today’s deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and success. The clock is running. Make the most of today.” ~ Marc Levy

“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

“When I am heavy with heartache I shall console myself that this too shall pass; when I am puffed with success I shall warn myself that this too shall pass.  When I am strangled in poverty I shall tell myself that this too shall pass; when I am burdened with wealth I shall tell myself that this too shall pass. Yea, verily, where is he who built the pyramid?  Is he not buried within its stone?  And will the pyramid, one day, not also be buried under sand?  If all things shall pass why should I be of concern for today?  I will laugh at the world.” ~ Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World
