Time: the Great Equalizer!

"Since time is the one immaterial object which we cannot influence - neither speed up nor slow down, add to nor diminish - it is an imponderably valuable gift." -Maya Angelou

Lately I’ve been wishing I had a few extra hours in my day. It just seems like there are always more projects than minutes.

As Angelou notes, time is a valuable gift and something that puts everyone on a level playing field. No one gets more or less than anyone else within a 24 hour day. Our time to use or squander. And some people waste hours while others pack more into one hour than many of us accomplish in an entire day.

I love that "Time is the Great Equalizer." We have no guarantee how many years we'll live but we all have exactly the same seconds, minutes, and hours in a day!

"Time you enjoyed wasting is not wasted time." -Bertrand Russell
