Do we need more time? Or do we need to be more disciplined with the time we have?
Are you sometimes wondering why other people are able to be more productive than you? Why they just seem to achieve more with the same amount of time?
It’s often not because they take more time and drop other things for that, but because they manage their time well.
Time management is a little bit about experience and priorities and a lot about discipline. Managing your time in theory is easy for most of us, but really following through is the hard part.
You will never find time for anything. If you want the time, you must make it.
As I like to say: You’ve got the same 24 hours that everyone else has every day, make use of it.
You decide what you spend your time on and only you are responsible. Quit weeping around and complaining about not having enough time and make time for important stuff. One major tip: Work a job you love, not a job you can endure. That will make a great percentage of your time awesome instead of wasted.
You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage – pleasently, smilingly, nonapelogetically – to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside.

Try to imagine a life without timekeeping
You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie.
Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays.
Man alone measures time.
Man alone chimes the hour.
And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures.
A fear of time running out.
The only fool bigger than the person who knows it all is the person who argues with him.
Next time you find yourself in an argument where the other person is clearly not interested in arguing but absolutely sure that he is right no matter what, get out there as soon as you can. Enjoy your time.
