Effective Rule #11 – Treat Time with Utmost Respect

Be aware of the productive time you waste


  • Time is our most important resource
  • You cannot make more time
  • Time is worth more than money or going to work
  • We tend to waste a lot of time of the day

Rules of Thumb

  • Calculate a dollar per hour value for each of your “productive” hours
  • Ask yourself, “was this last hour well spent”, “would I have payed someone for this hour”, if the answer is “no”, then we know we can do better

“Understand that your time has a limit set to it. Use it, then to advance your enlightenment; or it will be gone, and never in your power again.”

Marcus Aurelius

“The only difference between a rich person and poor person is how they use their time.”


“You act like mortals in all that you fear, and like immortals in all that you desire”
