Quotes on Time:
Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.~Auguste Rodin
Do not waste a minute — not a second — in trying to demonstrate to others the merits of your performance. If your work does not vindicate itself, you cannot vindicate it.~ Thomas Wentworth Higginson
Short as life is, we make it still shorter by the careless waste of time.~ Victor Hugo
Time = Life, Therefore, waste your time and waste of your life, or master your time and master your life.~ Alan Lakein
Reflection: I love these quotes because it forces me to look at what is important in life. Many times when I taught Time Management courses audience members would say things like this–“my mother is important is important to me, but I don’t have enough time to call her and stay in touch. I would respond if you don’t have the time its because they she is not a priority in your life”. You can replace the word mother with other family members or other things like I have to make a living,but these are all just execuses. We find the time in our lives for that which is important.
Action assignment: Since life is not a rehearsal and our time is finite what are the two things you would like to make time for in your life? After identifying them then build a Smart-Step Plan for changing and focusing on the things that you say are important in your life.
