There never was a good knife made of bad steel.

Every day, you’re making an investment of something extremely valuable -- your time. You cannot save time for use later. It must be used as it comes. We all get the same amount of it -- 24 hours each day. Success is determined largely by how effectively we use our time.

Get the most out of the time you have. Focus your efforts on doing the things that will have the most significant impact on your life and your work. Do the “big” things first, and stay “on task” until they’re done.

Nothing will make you more effective than the ability to stay focused. Practice it. Work at it. Challenge yourself to stay in focus. When you’re about to become distracted, force yourself back to the task at hand. You’ll be amazed at how much more you get done, when you actually work the whole time you’re working.

Your time is precious and cannot be replaced once it is spent. Use it wisely and effectively, by staying focused and getting things done.

— Ralph Marston
