24 Quotes about the Value of Time and Time Management

A moment gone never comes back.

We should understand the value of time until it is too late. After all, it is always our choice to use our time wisely or waste it anyway.


Do you Value your Time?

Everyone has some dreams in life. Dreams demand time and effort. We think we will have plenty of time later to do things.

Later, we realize that if we could do it earlier, it could have been better. Why it happens that we understand the value of time when we lost it.

Here is what great people say about the value of time:

“Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.” ~ M. Scott Peck

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

“My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.” ~ Steve Jobs

“Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it.” ~ Lord Chesterfield

“I recommend you take care of the minutes and the hours will take care of themselves.” ~ Earl of Chesterfield

“Realize that now, in this moment of time, you are creating. You are creating your next moment. That is what’s real.” ~ Sara Paddison


How we Spend our Time:

Check yourself. How you spend your day? Are you just getting lost in your daily activities? Are you getting close to your goals in life? Often we think so much but never find time to make it happen.

Does negativity eat up your time? Sometimes we focus on the negative aspect more than the positive. Negative thinking tries to keep you at the same place.

Shift your focus from “What cannot be done” to “What can be done”. Spend your time to move forward in life.

Let us see some quotes about the spending our time wisely:

“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.” ~ Bruce Lee

“Most people spend more time and energy going around problems than in trying to solve them.” ~ Henry Ford

“Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.” ~ Coco Chanel

“Ordinary people think merely of spending time. Great people think of using it.” ~ Author Unknown

“Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.” ~ William Penn


Do you dare to Waste your Time?

If you think you are wasting time, you are wrong here. Actually, time is wasting you day by day. Use yourself as much as you can.

Here is what they say about wasting time:

“Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them.” ~ Dion Boucicault

“Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

“Time = Life, Therefore, waste your time and waste of your life, or master your time and master your life.” ~ Alan Lakein

“Lost time is never found again.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

“You can’t make up for lost time. You can only do better in the future.” ~ Ashley Ormon


I do not have Time:

We always complain about the lack of time. We all have equal 24 hours and we can do a lot in those 24 hours. It is all about priorities.

Often we spend a lot of time on the things that are of less priority such as watching TV, gossiping, reading newspaper and walking here and there.

It is good to make time for enjoyment. However, manage your time to work on the important things as well. You will always find time to do things that you really want to do in life.

Here are great sayings for you if you say you do not have time:

“Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.” ~ Zig Ziglar

“You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it.” ~ Charles Buxton

“The essence of self-discipline is to do the important thing rather than the urgent thing.” ~ Barry Werner


Do not Wait. Start it today:

Time is precious. Time is limited. Do not wait so long to do anything in life.

I have seen people who wait for the perfect time. They wait until they have a clear picture. They wait until they will have all resources. Patience is good but you cannot wait forever. If you keep waiting for long, you will regret later.

Do you find time to work on your dreams? If not now when?

Enough is enough. Take the first step. Move a bit everyday. Experiment with where you are and what you have. Your vision will become clear when you take action.

Listing some quotes that tell us to start using our time right now:

“Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.” ~ Napoleon Hill

“Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.” ~ William Shakespeare

“Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much can be done if we are always doing.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

“The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now.” ~ Proverb

“One day at a time–this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.” ~ Unknown
