Value of Time

We are all gifted with 24 hours a day – the way we spend it makes the difference. Some people would spend it productively,  juggling different things in a day. Others would just spend it lackadaisically then at the end of the day they would complain of not having enough time to finish all their tasks. The culprit? Poor time management.

In light with the value of time, let me share with you this poem (from anonymous):


To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.

To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who just missed a train.

To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask someone who just avoided an accident.

To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won a silver medal at the Olympics.

Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time with. And remember time waits for no one.

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why its called the present.
