“Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend.”
Today’s quote is a simple but potent one. It serves as a reminder that time is, for everyone, the most valuable thing we can spend. Regarding time, consider the following:
- Once time is spent, we cannot get it back. However, time that we invest wisely can benefit us for the rest of our lives.
- We all have a finite amount of time available to us, but we never know when that time will run out.
- Our time is ours alone – we cannot give it away or buy more.
Keep this quote in mind as you go throughout your day – what are you spending your time on? Are you investing your time? Or just spending it?
