Breaking Free of That Slave Master Called “Time” Post 2 of 4

Post 2 of 4: Changing Your Perspective on Time

When it comes to being a slave to time—and learning to break free—certain of our sages have given us great tips. We all have 24 hours in the day. What we do with those hours makes all the difference to us and how we view the world.

“Time is a created thing. To say, ‘I don’t have time’ is like saying, “I don’t want to have time.’” Lao Tzu

“All we have to do is decide what to do with the time that’s given to us.” J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“The key question to keep asking is, ‘Are you spending your time on the right things? Because time is all you have.” Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

“Saying that you don’t have time to improve your thoughts and your life is like saying you don’t have time to stop for gas because you are too busy driving. Eventually, it will catch up with you.” Robin Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari
