Time is the most valuable asset you have. It’s a non-renewable resource and is constantly depleting.
How can I make the most of my time?
That’s a question I continually ask and want to learn about. The clock is ticking.
Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Your Time Matters
To maximize your time, you need to first really understand it’s value.

Now, how would you rank these things on your list? It might surprise you to discover that many of those who are considered highly successful all rank the same thing at number one: time.”

Facebook Wants To Help You Spend Your Time Well
This is hot off the press.
Yesterday, Mark Zuckerberg announced new changes for Facebook.
“Now, I want to be clear: by making these changes, I expect the time people spend on Facebook and some measures of engagement will go down. But I also expect the time you do spend on Facebook will be more valuable. And if we do the right thing, I believe that will be good for our community and our business over the long term too.
At its best, Facebook has always been about personal connections. By focusing on bringing people closer together — whether it’s with family and friends, or around important moments in the world — we can help make sure that Facebook is time well spent.”
