“Invest more of your time; spend less of it.” – Roger Hamilton
We all have the same 24 hours each day, however how people use this time can make fundamental differences with the results. For most of us living busy lives we tend to complain that there’s not enough time in the day to get everything done, a lot of things get put onto the “tomorrow” list – which reminds me of another quote; “If it wasn’t for the last minute, nothing would ever get done!”.
Another great quote was from The Matrix (2nd movie); “If you don’t ever make time, how can you have time?”. There are a few constants with time: 1) It will continue, no matter what you do, and 2) the wealthier people become, the more precious time becomes.
In my opinion, we should strive for a balance. Keep a balance with work / home – invest time 100% at work to work, and 100% to the family when home wherever possible, and live each day treating time as a precious commodity. I chose to invest my time in relationships (family, friends, work etc), education (I love to keep learning) and security (this includes anything that aims to build wealth such as becoming brilliant at work, building an investment portfolio or even writing a book).
How will you invest your time today?
