Paragraph of the Day: "Time is more valuable than money"

"People often say, “I don’t have the time to…” Fill in the blank with whatever you like: exercise, make dinner, write a book, start a company, run for political office. What makes these people think that they have less time than anyone else? Of course they don’t. We all have the same 24 hours in each day and make real decisions about how we spend them. If you really want to get in shape, then carve out time to exercise. If you want to write a book, then pick up a pen and do it. And, if you want to run for president, then get started. It isn’t going to happen if you plan your day around your favorite TV shows or spend hours updating your Facebook page. These are entertaining distractions that eat up your irreplaceable time."

Priorities and focus. Handle the big rocks before you look after the pebbles and sand. And don't forget the wine when you are done.

I just worked for a week at an old folks home, installing a network... and this is SO true - because time is moving SO quickly. Soon, we'll be the one's they push in the hallway to watch others slowly die, or die ourselves... and all the money in the world wont help on those days.
