Time Management Quotes


Time management is a key skill for work and life.  I’ve posted my collection of Time Management Quotes on Sources of Insight.   While organizing my collection of quotes, I got clarity on a handful of lessons for time management:

  • Time is what you make of it. 
  • You don’t have time, you make it. 
  • It’s your most valuable resource. 
  • Invest time.  Investing in your time is investing in your life. 
  • Don’t dwell on the train you missed.  Catch the next train.  
  • Time changes what’s important. You can’t buy time. 
  • Time is all we have.  
  • Time is a teacher.
  • Time is a judge. 
  • Time is a healer. 
  • Time is a friend.

    Money, I can only gain or lose. But time I can only lose. So, I must spend it carefully.

    Time stays long enough for those who use it.

        – Leonardo Da Vinci

    Disagree with #2…

    Instead,

    You can NOT "make" time, you can only manage the time you are given in the manner you see fit.

    @ Loren

    🙂

    @ andreb

    Leonardo is the man!

    @ The CPUWizard

    I think we agree.

    It’s a short form that’s easier to remember — You make time in your schedule for it … where make simply means you "re-allocate" the time you’ve already got.  Of course you don’t literally make time.

  8. gee says:

    Whether we wake or we sleep,

    Whether we carol or weep,

    The Sun with his Planets in chime,

    Marketh the going of Time.

    ~Edward Fitzgerald

    Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve,

    too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.”

    “There is only one you for all time. Fearlessly be yourself.”

    thanx ragavan.
