The value of time

The value that you place on your time will determine what you receive in return for it. If you are careless and wasteful with your time, you’ll have very little to show for it. When you see your time as precious, making an effort to get the most from every minute, success and achievement will result.

The wealthy businessperson, the winning athlete, the accomplished musician all have the exact same number of hours in the day as everyone else. Yet because they value, appreciate and make the most of each moment, their lives are filled with exceptional accomplishment.

If you have the feeling that there aren’t enough hours in the day, consider how you’re using those hours that you do have. There’s always something you can do, to get more out of them.

Time can work for you or against you, depending entirely on the degree to which you utilize each priceless moment. Value your time and it will bring value to you.

— Ralph Marston
