Do You Have Time, or Does Time Have You?

We’ve all heard the saying, “time is money.” And while there’s some truth to that, it’s not the whole story. You see, time is the most valuable resource we have — more valuable than money, more valuable than anything else. And yet, we often find ourselves at the mercy of time. We let time dictate our schedules, our priorities, and our very lives.

But what if it doesn’t have to be that way?

What if you could take back control of your time?

It’s possible, but it starts with valuing your time above all else!

How do you feel about time? Do you have time, or does time have you?

These are deep questions that go to the heart of our existence. For most, the answer may be “not enough.” And in a way, they would be right. Time is the most valuable resource we have in our lives — it’s the great equalizer and it’s something we should all be working on ways to increase.

It’s time!

Memento Mori

We are all travelers through an endless cycle — birth, life, death, and so on, on endless repeat for the universe. But within that cycle, our lives do have a beginning and an end. We are not the universe. And while we don’t know when that end will come, we do know that it will come eventually.

Memento mori.

Now is timeless.

Stop being lost, and hoping to be found in time.

Make time for what you value the most in your life!

It’s about time to make the most of the time we have.

Stop being owned by time and start taking back control.

Most people live in the past or future, but everything is now.

Where you take your time shows what you value and where your focus goes.

Aren’t we all “running out of time” — all the time?

While we are all travelers through an endless cycle, our life does have a beginning and an end. It’s time to take ownership of our time and make the most out of it!
