Wasting time? Check these quotes

“Don't let yesterday use up too much of today.” 


“The quickest way to run out of time is to think you have enough of it,” 


“One of the very worst uses of time is to do something very well that need not to be done at all.” 


“Worry is like a rocking chair-it keeps you busy but gets you nowhere.” 


“We only get one life. Wasting someone’s time is the subtlest form of murder.” 


“Thinking before taking actions is useful only if you are going to take action, otherwise you are wasting time and insulting your mind.” 


“Don't waste your time chasing things that will never be beneficial to your future.” 


“We all have the same 24/7. What we do with our time, becomes our priority.Avoid priorities by default.” 


“So, whenever you find yourself putting forth great effort without success, you're trying to force something that won't fit under the circumstances. That's a destructive waste of time. And if that isn't enough to keep in mind, your techniques must always be allowed to evolve and change, in relationships, in life, in science, in society. Otherwise you stagnate, and you won't get anywhere in the long run... You know what the philosopher Aldous Huxley said? He said 'Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are the dead.”
