Most people look at their bank accounts with great attention and assess how much money they have to spend, to invest, and to give away… In fact, time is much more valuable than money because you can use your time to make money, but you can't use money to purchase more time.

Time is the great equalizer… Each day has only 24 hours - nobody has any more than anyone else. Everyone, from poets to presidents, fills those hours, one after the other, until they are all filled up.

When you look at someone who has accomplished a lot, you can be pretty sure that he or she has spent considerable amounts of time mastering the skills, filling hours upon hours with hard work. There are those who look at others' accomplishments and say, "I had that idea, " or "I could have done that." If you don't invest the time needed to achieve those goals then

all you have are empty

ambitions. —
