10 Important Quotes About Time Management (Motivational Business Quotes)

best time management quotes

After yesterday’s post about time, I thought I’d share 10 inspiring quotes about time management with you:

1. “Lost time is never found again.” – Benjamin Franklin

2. “The essence of self-discipline is to do the important thing rather than the urgent thing.” – Barry Werner

3. “Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.” – William Penn

4. “This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

5. “This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or use it for good. What I do today is important, because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something that I have traded for it. I want it to be gain, not loss; good not evil; success not failure; in order that I shall not regret the price I paid for it.” – Author Unknown

6. “Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend.” – Theophrastus

7. “Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report written on birds that he’d had three months to write, which was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books about birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him put his arm around my brother’s shoulder, and said, ‘Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.’” ― Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

8. “Time stays long enough for those who use it.” – Leonardo Da Vinci

9. “Habitual procrastinators will readily testify to all the lost opportunities, missed deadlines, failed relationships and even monetary losses incurred just because of one nasty habit of putting things off until it is often too late.” ― Stephen Richards

10. “Time management is an oxymoron. Time is beyond our control, and the clock keeps ticking regardless of how we lead our lives. Priority management is the answer to maximizing the time we have.” – John C. Maxwell
