Time! All I can say about it is that it flies!
We’re attempting to get up earlier to put in a lot more into our days, but still the things-to-be-done list seems to be growing. I’ve realized that we’ll never catch up with the list until we learn to prioritize and do a limited number of tasks each day instead of trying to do it all.
I looked up some time management quotes to inspire myself and decided to share them with you.

These are wonderful!! Number 5 really spoke to me!
I’m more conscious of how quickly a days goes by than ever. My priorities have changed in this phase of life because I don’t want to waste time. However, I still make time to just be. Thanks for the quotes. Much food for thought.
I like the quote from John Wooden – if we don’t put the time and care into doing something right the first time, no matter how much time that takes, we will be doomed to doing it over and over again. My time is precious, yet I don’t always treat it that way; something I need to work on, especially with working on the rest of my novels. 🙂
