Time is supposed to be money. In fact, time is worth more than money. If you lose your money, you can replace it with much more money.
Doing the same with time is impossible, however. "Lost time," declared Benjamin Franklin, "is never found again." In this regard, money is unlimited; time isn't. Unfortunately, some people act as if the opposite were true...



Those who make the worst use of their time most complain of its shortness.
— La Bruyère

Clearly, in today's fast-paced, stressed-out Western world, time is more precious than never before. Time, in fact, is our scarcest resource. It is a finite resource on which we place infinite demands by trying to do too much. Given that you can always get more money, but not more time, you should spend your time much more wisely than you spend your money.

Always leave enough time in your life to do something that makes you happy, satisfied, even joyous. That has more of an effect on economic well-being than any other single factor.
— Paul Hawken

Billionaire Nicolas Hayek, who reshaped the insolvent Swiss watch industry into a multi-billion dollar empire, had this to say about time: "Time is both wonderful and horrible. It is my work and life. Yet I hate time. Why? Because you cannot stop it. You cannot possess it. It's always present, but if you try to hold it, it disappears. And don't try to use personal tricks to fool time. It will always catch up with you."

If you want to have time on your side, you can't always fight it.
Indeed, to fight time is as asinine as to fight the law of gravity and the Easy Rule of Life. Together, the three will sooner or later put you six feet under.

You must always work not just within but below your means. If you can handle three elements, handle only two. If you can handle ten, then handle only five. In that way the ones you do handle, you handle with more ease, more mastery, and you create a feeling of strength in reserve.
— Picasso

Nothing indicates better that you are fighting time than the fact
you are always hurried. Always feeling rushed is no way to live for a prosperity-minded individual. To be sure, the objective of life is not to get through it as fast as possible.

I believe you are your work. Don't trade the stuff of your life, time, for nothing more than dollars. That's a rotten bargain.
— Rita Mae Brown

Perhaps you aren't concerned about the rapid pace of your life. The thing you should be concerned about, however, is the abrupt stop at the end it, much earlier than you expected. And you are going to reach the end of life at a much younger age if you don't learn to slow down.

Your mind can be your greatest asset, but it can play tricks on you. One such nasty trick is it makes you believe that you don't have sufficient time to do your work and still have time to lead a satisfying, balanced lifestyle that includes time for relaxation, social engagements, and other leisure activities. Perhaps you should think again! You have 1440 minutes or 86,400 seconds in a day. That's the same amont of time that everyone else on Earth has, including people who have a full, relaxed, happy, and satisfying lifestyle.

Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered, for they are gone forever.
— Horace Mann

Putting more time in our lives is actually quite easy. Whenever you are short on time for the good things in life, you must create more time by making better use of it.

A recent research study at Penn State University indicated that what we perceive as a time crunch in large measure is just an erroneous perception. We all have enough time to do the important and enjoyable things, but we squander it. If we make excellent use of just 30 or 40 percent of our time, we shouldn't have any shortage.
