How do you spend your time?

Time is the most precious and limited thing you have. It is something that everyone has in an equal amount each day. The difference between a life of fulfillment and abundance, and a life of mediocrity, is determined by how you spend your time. It is as simple as that.

Treat every moment as the precious gift that it is. Use your time to build and create and accomplish. Don’t waste your time with envy, sloth, anger and regret. In everything you do, ask yourself: is it worth spending an irreplaceable part of my life on this?

Time can work for you if you learn to use it wisely. Consistent and focused effort, over time, will bring desired results. Remember that each moment is an opportunity that must be taken now.

— Ralph Marston
