“Nothing valuable can be lost by taking time.”

Nothing valuable can be lost by taking time. If there be an object to hurry any of you in hot haste to a step which you would never take deliberately, that object will be frustrated by taking time; but no good object can be frustrated by it.”- Abraham Lincoln

Do not jump into what you don’t know. Look before you leap. Because great things take time to do. So if you want to do great things, you must take your time.

The key question?

“The key question to keep asking is, Are you spending your time on the right things? Randy Pausch

Time is precious. Try to answer the question above. If you are not spending your time on the right things, you will never get to where you are going. The good news is: you can change it. You can start spending your time on the right things. It is never too late to start. Will you start now?

Make time for what is important to you.

“You don’t find time for important thingss, you make it.”- Randy Pausch

There is no time for anything. But if something is very important to you, you must create time to make it happen. Do not wait for the right time to get things done. Now is the right time to get things done. You can do it if you have the courage to face your fears.

Time does not stand still.

“Our liberty, is endangered if we pause for the passing moment, if we resist on our achievements, if we resist the pace of progress. For time and the world do not stand still.”- John F. Kennedy

Time does not stand still. Change does not stand still. And life does not stand still. If you want to grow, you must not stand still. You must NOT resist change.

“Change is the law of life.”

“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.”- John F. Kennedy

Life is not hard if you have the courage to face change, to grow, to expand yourself. Because life is all about change. It is going forward. It is changing. If you want to see what is in front of you, you must not look to the past. Live your life in the moment.

Now is the right time to do what is right.

“The time is always right to do what’s right.”- Martin Lurther King Jr.

The time to help is now. The time to do what is right for yourself is now. Do not waste it. If you cannot change your life now, when are you going to change your life?

We need people around us, but we don’t need everybody. You need lifters around you. You don’t need downers around you.

If the people around you are not lifting up, they are putting you down. If they are not making you happy, they are making you unhappy.

If they are eating you alive, change them. Do not follow the crowd, follow yourself. You are good enough for yourself. Give yourself what you are expecting from other people. Because no one can give you what is within you.

Choose your friends wisely. Bad friends can stop you from growing. In the words of Thomas S. Monson, “Choose your friends with caution; plan your future with purpose, and frame your life with faith.” If you want to live well, you must choose your friends wisely.
