More Precious Than Gold
In this world there is something more precious than gold. Diamonds? No. Platinum? No. Some other precious metal? No.
Of course, it would depend who you might ask. Many would mention the alternatives I've already given. If you asked a drowning man he would undoubtedly say a life-buoy. If you asked a thirsty person stranded in the desert they would say water. And if you asked a person grieving over a lost loved one they would answer in that manner. All would be correct according to their own particular circumstance.
The value of something is in its scarcity. It's a matter of simple economics really. Things that exist in abundance are relatively cheap. Things that are rare are more expensive. Unique items are very valuable indeed. That is how value is measured.
However, going back to my opening statement, what would be more precious than any of the above? I would suggest something that, once spent, can never be regained. It's something that we all have but it runs out second by second. Time.
Time is the most precious commodity we have. Like everything else, it is its scarcity that increases its value.
Think about a child who is five years old. That child has a very shallow concept of time. If we double the age to ten time is again relatively abundant. Doubling the age to twenty a person begins to understand its concept.
If we double that person's age to forty time begins to become more and more valuable. At the age of eighty, if one lives that long, time is at a premium. It becomes very precious indeed.
If an eighty year old person had all the money they could ever spend what do you think they would buy, if they could? Time!
We only have one life. We cannot buy time. Shouldn't time be the one thing that we value more than anything else? And yet, so many people elect to waste time.
Don't let the wastage of time rob you of the things that you really want to do. The biggest robber of time are the words: "I'll do it later" or I'll get it done next week" or "there's plenty of time."
There is never a better time to do something than right now!
Procrastination and laziness will always ensure that you waste opportunities for achievement.
Use your time wisely. You will never get it back. There is no such thing as eternal youth. One day your time will run out. It would be such a pity for that to happen with a mind still full of wasted opportunity.
I heard somebody say once that "it is better to wear out than rust out." Going to the grave with the "music still in you" would be such a tragedy.
Time will always be your enemy - unless you make it your friend. Keep learning, keep working and keep achieving. Do it now!

7 Tips for Being Your Best Time Master
It is not enough if you are busy. The question is, "What are you busy about?" - Henry David ThoreauWith our to-do lists ever-growing, assigning tasks to our calendars can be a simple way to manage time and reduce stress.
You Cant Buy Time
Our daily lives are inundated with a crammed to-do list. We are often rushing throughout our day trying to keep up with ourselves.
Time Management: A Non-Renewable Resource
Benjamin Franklin wrote: "If you want to enjoy one of the greatest luxuries in life, the luxury of having enough time, time to rest, time to think things through, time to get things done and know you have done them to the best of your ability, remember, there is only one way. Take enough time to think and plan things in the order of their importance.
Expand Your Time
In our time-crazed society, lots of time is what most of us don't have. Yet, all of us would like to have more time.
The WIT to WIN
What are the most important things you should accomplish today? Go ahead. Make a list of your priorities and put them in order of their importance.
Time and Life, Bit by Bit
Looking out through my picture window during a recent winter storm, I felt like I was in a giant snow globe. Big, fluffy snowflakes were falling, covering everything with a nice wintry blanket.
Use Your Time Wisely!
When I was small, I have never considered the importance of time.I would just laze around, watch TV, lie in bed, and play videogames.

Put a Couple of Elephants on Your Plate
How do you eat two elephants? The same way you would eat one; one bite at a time. Monstrous tasks often appear to be complex and overwhelming.
Are You Always Late?
"Fashionably late" is no longer in fashion. In today's heavily scheduled world, it is the punctual who are respected and admired.
Time is on Your Side - Manage it Wisely
How do you manage your time? Or is the more appropriate question do you wish you had better time management skills? I have clients and friends who rely on everything from legal pads to brightly colored sticky notepads to manage their time and appointments - practically everything in their life. I don't understand why some folks place so little importance on something as important as time management!As a professional Virtual Assistant, I have numerous clients and tasks I must complete every day.
Save Your Time - Delegate!
Frustration is when an obstacle blocks your ability to achieve a goal. You know it is still possible to achieve it, but you just have no idea how.
Realistic Time Budgeting Tips
I'm sure we've all had the experience of having a certain block of time available, and our to-do list tasks or goals that we want to accomplish in that time frame, only to turn around at the end of that period of time to have the frustrating experience of not getting nearly enough done that we thought we could. What happened? Where did all the time go? This can be in our personal / family lives, our jobs or our businesses.
Sharpen The Saw
Sometime ago, my lovely wife woke me up in the middle of the night and said, 'Dayo, you know what? I feel neglected.' I was speechless.
Isn't it amazing that some people can produce huge results in the same 24 hours that we all have? Whether or not we realize it, we victimize ourselves by not appropriately deciding what to do with our time. Instead, we let our time decide what to do with us!Time is a commodity, and no matter who we are, we experience many demands on this precious commodity.

"How do you DO it?!" If I had a dime for every time I heard that, I would be able to quit my home business.Just kidding.

I have a habit of sending a thank you letter for meeting after any meeting I attend. People often tell me it is not serious and out of contest but I believe a thank you letter for meeting is necessary for any decent business man.
Painful Cost of Working Yourself to Death
We all know the harmful effects of overwork. People get tired and irritable.

As the song goes, this is the time to relax, rest, rejuvenate and reward yourself for all the hard work you've been doing. As they say, all work and no play makes Jack & Jill a very dull boy & girl.
Time Well Spent
It is common knowledge that creating and living according to a financial budget is a requisite for fiscal health and well-being. Budgets enable allocation of resources according to priorities.
