Quote-A-Day:Day 200

Rather than waste energy worrying about time you don't have, make the most of time you've got.

Anyone else out there always feel like there isn't enough time to do everything you need to do?

I've been thinking a lot lately about the fact that "never enough time" is never going to change.  We're always going to be in a time sink, where our "To Do" lists keep getting longer, and no matter what we do, we never seem to be able to get to everything.

I've started wondering though, maybe worrying about the time we don't have isn't the right way to do things. Maybe, instead, we have to emphasize the time we do have, and making the most of it.

This is obviously harder to do than it sounds, as our instinct is to pity ourselves over the time that we're missing or we've lost.  And yet, the flip side of that same coin is to be thankful for the time we have, and make sure that we accomplish as much as we can in that time.

Our success and our legacy isn't built on how much we accomplish, but rather, the quality of what we accomplish.  If we can leave a few enormously helpful impacts on those we serve, then isn't this much better than hundreds of "accomplishments" that don't mean much to anybody?

I think so.  What do you think?

Note: Today marks my 200th quote.  Thanks for all the support!
