Guard Your Precious Time


“Guard your time fiercely.  Be generous with it, but be intentional about it.  Guard it the same way you guard your money.  It’s the one resource with which we have increasingly less to do our life’s work, and be with those we love.  Say yes to those things first.”

“Time looked like snow dropping silently into a black room or…like a silent film in an ancient theater, one hundred billion faces falling like those New Year balloons, down, and down into nothing.”

“Upon his silver hairs, time, like a Panama hat, sit at a tilt and smiles.”

  1. I just love that last quotation. It made me smile, too. This is a good post for me today – lots of hours with no responsibilties to be met. What shall I do with them? Always, we can stand being a little more intentional about our use of time.

  2. Did you noticed that the clock was also tilted, just like the hat? Omar smiles too. Smiles are good to our health. We should smile more instead of taking life too seriously.
