"Time is free, but its priceless. You cant own it, but you can use it. You cant keep it, but you can spend it. Once youve lost it, you can never get it back."
Our time is a series of precious moments that we get to enjoy each and every day. Regardless of whether we realize it or not, time is truly our most priceless possession. How you choose to use or abuse this invaluable asset makes a big difference in the type of life you get to lead.
Some underachieving individuals continuously watch the clock, hoping it will speed up and get them closer to quitting time or the weekend. Rather than enthusiastically embracing every minute of the day as a frozen in time moment theyll never have or hold again, these people unknowingly wish their lives away. Then, before they know it, life has passed them by.
"Lost wealth may be replaced by industry, lost knowledge by study, lost health by temperance or medicine, but lost time is gone forever."
While these people are busy looking for ways to spend their time, the top achievers find ways to invest it. The very best have always been those unique power players that somehow manage to squeeze more living out of every day. They have come to realize that even one minute wasted is one minute too many.
By consistently looking for ways to make the most of every moment, these winners get more done in less time and still have plenty of play time available as well.
"Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered for they are gone forever."
The old proverb that says "lost time is never found again" is so true. After all, how can any of us place a value on just one day, hour or minute that is wasted away and gone forever? The key to making your time pay is to live in the moment, searching out and enjoying all of the unique opportunities that each day provides us all.
Since were granted only so many days to make a difference, shouldnt we seek to make the most of our time on earth? And rather than rushing through the day with little or nothing to show for it, shouldnt we choose to take our time and use it wisely? Instead of looking for ways to pass away the hours, shouldnt we look for ways to get lost in the moment?
"A man who dares to waste one hour of life has not discovered the value of life."
Why should you allow even one more day of your life to slip right through your hands? Instead of wishing it was Friday or quitting time, why not treat every minute of every day for what it truly is an invaluable gift from God? By squeezing all of the fun, excitement and happiness you can from every minute, your life will soon take on more meaning, purpose and fulfillment.
Peter Drucker said, "Until we can manage time, we can manage nothing else." As soon as you condition yourself to take your time, where you really relish every single second, youll start living your life the way youve always imagined it could be and have the time of your life as well.
The Bottom Line: In order to find time for the things you want in life, you simply need to take your time.
