Time Is King - Some Interesting Quotes About Time Management

Time is the most important thing in your life.

I can say this without a doubt. It is really the most important thing in your life. If you spend money, you can make more money later on, but you can’t just make more time later. You can only spend it and not make more of it.

If your health is not the best in the world, you can still increase that, so time is more important than health. The fact is that, if you want to increase your health, you will have to spend some time to do that 

If you want to make a lot of money, you will probably need a lot of time. If you want to gain a lot of respect, you will probably need a lot of time as well… I can continue listing various items all day long. Whatever you are doing in your life, it requires time. That’s exactly why this thing happens:

“Time is what we want most, but what we use worst” (Wiliam Pen)

A lot of people want to spend their time with family, working and improving their online business, but don’t you think that it would be better invest your time instead of spending it? This is a great idea, right? It is the same with money. Most people spend money, but some people invest money to make more money.

“The key is in not spending time, but in investing it.“
Stephen R. Covey

We already talked about investing your time and that you can’t make more time. Take a close look at this quote, I am sure an “aha” moment will pop up in your head:

“Money, I can only gain or lose. But time I can only lose. So, I must spend it carefully.“
Author Unknown

You probably have already realized that I like quotes. But, I don’t like them. I love these quotes… You can get so much from these little 10 word sentences… Here is another quote that I am trying to implement (but it is quite hard…):

“A wise person does at once, what a fool does at last. Both do the same thing; only at different times. “
Baltasar Gracian

We have covered a little bit information about spending your time. I’ve realised that many people try to wait and delay important decisions, or they just wait for better opportunities, but you have to remember this:

“You may delay, but time will not.“
Benjamin Franklin

We all should know, that we are responsible for everything that happens in our life. For everything. You are responsible, whether you will become a millionaire or not. You will be responsible for all your mistakes. You will be responsible for something that you could done in the past, but you didn’t do that. Only you and only you are responsible how successful you are, how successfully you manage your time, how much money you make, what decisions you make. Not your friends, not your parents, family, politics. Only you. Here is the last quote, which I think is one of the best quotes about time management:

“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.“
Michael Altshuler

When I still held an office job, I always take advantage of time management courses because that’s what’s always been a challenge for me. And yeah you’re right, you can afford to lose money because you can raise it right back, but time… you’ll lose it forever if you don’t use it wisely.

Plan your time effectively by making a weekly and monthly plan. That way you won’t waste any time at all and will know when you can make time savings. It also helps that when people ask for a meeting or some of your time you create the perception of being organised and busy.

“I can’t see you at that time, but I can see you on Wednesday between 10 – 11 or Thursday 3 – 4″ sounds better than, “yeah, when’s good for you?”

Great topic – Richie

Hi Matt,

The gift of life is time. How we choose to spend this gift is how we choose to spend our life.

Time is what we have, that’s it. We select what we wish to do with the time we’re loaned. Once time passes us, its’ gone forever.

I intend to get the most out of each moment for I dislike living in the past or the future. Since we haven’t figured out time travel yet it makes no sense to worry about the future or regret the past. We can’t live there, even if we think we can. It’s better to focus on the Now and do what we can, where we are. Right here.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Matt,
The quotes you shared here with us about time are really inspirational. I would like to add that all the money in the world cannot replace the time we have lost. Our time should be spent in meaningful ways such as spending them most with our loved ones. Work is just a way to kill time and to acquire money to spend for our loved ones :)

Hi Matt,

Great post and I particularly liked the last quote. How we spend our time is totally up to us. While this means the responsibility is ours to make wise decisions, how empowering it is to know that it’s all in our hands. There is nobody or thing that we can blame.

Hi Matt,
Great quotes you have here. Love them. I agree with you there that time is king, really more important than money, a lot would say.
We only really have this moment right now. We can make more money, but we can’t make more hours in each day.
We never know when time will be taken from us that’s why we should invest it in things that matter most to us and that adds value to our lives.
A timely reminder to use our time wisely. Thanks for sharing.

Exactly, time is the real ruler. After all, its all about time, ourselves, decisions, personalities, choices, situations, that get modified with respect to time.
Undoubtedly, time management is the great quality that one can have.
I really liked the last quote. :)
Good effort man!

In this busy world, time plays a major role in all over the world. And, time management would be most important part in the globe.

Wesley Wise May 27, 2011 at 3:46 pm

Nice post and great quotes, too. Sometimes, when I think about it, I don’t want to be bound by time because it gives us limits. But then again, I can’t decide on how the world should work and as far as I remember by the time that I was born, time had already dominated and directed the way people worked so I guess, I’ll have to live with it. LOL.

Tho Huynh May 27, 2011 at 3:52 pm

Hi Matt,
time management is one of the most important things and it doesn’t matter if you perfectly plan your weeks or schedule all your activities. What really matters is the time you have allocated to a specific tasks ensuring their completions.
