Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report written on birds that he'd had three months to write, which was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books about birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said, Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.
You must know what to do with your time if you must become great in this life. You must know what to do with your time if you must fulfill your purpose on the earth.
The common feature of most of the successful people is, their talent is flexible to suit the needs of time.
The people with thriving careers and healthy personal relationships get the same amount of time each week as the burned-out professional who can’t remember their last meaningful conversation with a family member.
Time is the single most important resource that we have. Every single minute we lose is never coming back.
One may never get to know how fast the time travels till the one gets in that position to race against the time.
Go for it because for all those moments that you would make up your mind the other might have already rushed for it.
Time is the real emperor and there is no space for any pride since time flies and blows away anything.
Till the time you realize your conquest you already reach that stage when you start losing the grip.
Effective life management isn’t about finding more time to fill; it’s about recognizing you don’t have to do anything you do not choose to do. Hiding a choice behind a “have to” is irresponsible. Everything filling the white space in your life is there because you chose to put it there. We always have the power to say, “No.” We just need to be ready to live with the consequences.
We are all equally rich when it comes to the currency of time: 24 hours in a day and not one iota more. It is one of life's most level playing fields, ever devised, from the standpoint of a singular day.
Time is the most valuable coin in your life. You and you alone will determine how that coin will be spent. Be careful that you do not let other people spend it for you.
You will always find all the time you need in the world to do what you love. If you can’t find the time, it’s not important for you
Invest your life into what you were born to do. Make every minute of your life count. Redeem every minute of your life and convert it into greatness.
Greatness is never achieved in the realm of dreams but in the realm of reality and the only way to achieving that greatness is to convert your time into added value to yourself and then to others.
Take hold of your passing time and convert it into living your dreams. Only then can you truly fulfill the great destiny that you were called to fulfill.
You must understand that your creativity comes alive when you spend time alone focusing on your projects without distractions.
You see life is predictable. What you do with your time now will dictate how your life will become tomorrow.
For you not to waste or spend your life, you must first begin to see time and life correctly. You must first understand that time is life and life is time.
You must realize that whenever you waste a second you are wasting life. If you waste a minute, you have wasted life and if you waste an hour, you have wasted life.
For you to maximize time, you want to make sure that every second of the day that comes is converted into some products. You want to ensure that every minute and hour of the day that passes are being converted into some values. For you to be great, you must learn to convert every second of your life.
If you allow any minute of your time to pass without converting it into products, you will soon realize that you just wasted a part of your life.
For you to be able to be fruitful, to multiply and saturate the earth with your products, you have to first know how to properly use the currency of time.
