  1. Well, I don’t have a favorite time quote. I did, however, learn early on in life something that’s kept me productive for a long time (pun intended)! That is, and I’m writing this from experience, “You waste most of your time between steps.” I learned that in my teens and have never forgotten it!

    • This is a great quote, Jack. It is worth remembering.
      Thank you very much for sharing it with us. It is one of the typical food for thought quotes – and these are the best.

  2. I always liked the Ben Franklin. A stitch in time saves nine. Right to the point. Get it done now or you will have a bigger mess on your hands! Great quotes… Thanks.

  3. One of my favourite teachers has the first quote on his wall, as a reminder to us students to get it right the first time, so that we don’t have to do it over. 😉 Time is a precious commodity indeed!

    • This quote should also be on some office walls. 😀
      Time… Isn’t there a ‘Time’ day? Imagine poems and/or songs on ‘Time’, short stories on ‘Time’, etc.
