It’s your time

The value you place on your own time will determine the amount of value it brings to you. The more you value and appreciate every moment, the more positive and worthwhile things you’ll get from those moments.

You can use up your time with anger, resentment, envy or bitterness, and end up with nothing to show for it. Or you can put that time into thoughtful, positive, productive efforts that will bring a continuing stream of valuable rewards.

The greatest accomplishments come from those who place the highest value on the one factor that is common to everyone. That factor is the number of hours in each day.

One single day is plenty of time to move substantially ahead. You can go a long way in just one day, and can go wherever you desire with enough effective days put together.

It’s your time. How can you put the most into it, and achieve the most with it? You can waste it if you wish, on trivial, meaningless matters. Or you can live every moment with the richness and passion of which you’re most certainly capable.

— Ralph Marston
