Time Management Quotes

If you need help with managing your time, you are not alone.

Writers have personal lives, too, with all sorts of responsibilities vying for attention. 

For me, September marks a fresh beginning to regroup, reorganize, and redo. 

Here are a few encouraging quotes to help with time management:
If you don't write when you don't have time for it, you won't write when you do have time for it. -Katerina Stokova Klemer
Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. - H. Jackson Brown Jr.
The bad news is time flies. The good news is you're the pilot. - Michael Atshuler
Boundary setting is really a big part of time management. -Jim Loehr 
The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is. - C. S. Lewis
The first hour of the morning is the rudder of the day. - Henry Ward Beecher
A major part of successful living lies in the ability to put first things first. Indeed, the reason most major goals are not achieved is that we spend our time doing second things first. - Robert J. Mckain

Kathleen, I love these time management quotes. Here are two others that are great:

“We all have time to spend or waste, and it is our decision what to do with it. But, once passed, it’s gone forever.”
~ Bruce Lee

“One thing you can’t recycle is wasted time.” ~ Unknown

Agreed, we have one life that we are in charge of - some people don't have the freedom to use their time how they would like to. So it is a commodity we need to appreciate. Because we all run out of it eventually....
