Time—Friend or Foe? By Janet Callaway | The Natural Networker

Most of us have a love/hate relationship with time. Sometimes we feel it is on our side and other times we feel it is working against us.

In The Wealth Formula I talked about the importance of knowing the correct answer to the question “how many hours are there in a week?” The gentleman who taught my mentor about The Wealth Formula became an enormously successful and wealthy man because he learned the value of time from other wealthy individuals.

Below are some of my favorite quotes which help me appreciate, respect and best utilize my time.

Please do share a few of your favorite time quotes below.

Time is the scarcest resource and unless it is managed nothing else can be managed. Peter Drucker

Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time. Jim Rohn

If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over? Coach John Wooden

Much may be done in those little shreds and patches of time which every day produces, and which most men throw away. Charles Caleb Colton

The bad news is time flies. The good news is you're the pilot. Michael Althsuler

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vanci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

You don't get paid for the hour. You get paid for the value you bring to the hour. Jim Rohn


  1. I like Coach Wooden's statement the best. Being self employed in the construction field for 23 years I always did my best on each task I performed. Before I started my own business I worked for a construction company. During my lengthy 3 month tenure, every day I heard the statement "you can't see it from my house."

  2. Mark, I like your approach and attitude. Coach Wooden's statement has long resonated with me. It just makes so darn much sense.

  3. Loved the quotes! Time - our enemy and our friend.
