If you rush through life, you miss the best parts. Take your time, enjoy your time, savor your time and make rich, meaningful use of it.
Instead of rushing to get as much as possible done, take the time to do things the best you possibly can. Instead of racing to finish, enjoy the journey as you create great value along the way.
Being effective is not the same as being busy. Just because something is urgent doesn't mean it's important.
There are many things that can be done quickly, yet have little value. It's better to invest your time in one thing that really matters than to waste it on a dozen things that don't.
Let go of the need to skim quickly along the surface. Allow yourself to dive deeply and meaningfully into life's richness.
Your time is precious, so treat it with the respect it deserves. Rise above the anxious hurrying, and make every moment really mean something.
