Napoleon said it best: “I can always recapture lost territory. A single second of time, never.”
The first thing I noticed when I started hanging out with super successful people was JUST how much better they managed their time than other people.
They never overslept, they never stayed too long at parties, they only dated people who were potential “keepers”…
And over time, it paid dividends.
Sure, there was a price to be paid. They missed out on many adventures and potential idle moments, which all can be delightful.
But at least they knew the price, and were willing to pay it. It’s not like anyone put a gun to their head and said “Be less productive”.
We were put on this Earth to become the people we were born to be.
And how well we do that start with how well we guard our time.
Our time. Our rules.
But knowing this, of course, is where we get our power.
