From Jerry Seinfeld:
You can measure distance by time. “How far away is it?” “Oh about 20 minutes.” But it doesn’t work the other way. “When do you get off work?” “Around 3 miles.”
Get out your stopwatch. Each serving of PAM No-Stick Cooking Spray is “about 1/3 second.”
Where we spend our time indicates what is important to us. Do you spend enough time with your family and close friends? Do you spend more time reading books or blogs? TV or exercise? Do important projects get enough attention or is your time eaten up by unimportant tasks?
From Henry David Thoreau (via Quoty):
It is not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?
