Receipt to Experience Happiness  – Redeem Your Time

Receipt to Experience Happiness – Redeem Your Time

Do you have time to prepare another receipt to experience happiness? I personally believe this is one of the most important action plan. Learning to redeem your time.

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.

Carl Sandburg

Fundamentally, you need to realize that your time is your life and how you use it will eventually determine the quality of your life. If we want to purchase something we use cash. Similarly, time is the token we use to build our life. Everything we do or not do will take away time from us.

No wonder we often hear people saying how their time has passed away so quickly.
Everyone has the equal amount of time, therefore everyone has the same opportunity to create their ideal life. No one can complain that he or she is too busy because they do not have enough time. Denis Waitely was right when he commented that,

Time is an equal opportunity employer.  Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day.  Rich people cannot buy more hours.  Scientists cannot invent new minutes.  And you cannot save time to spend it on another day.
All that really belongs to us is time; even he who has nothing else has that.

Baltasar Gracian

The bottomline is how we manage our time and how to use it to build our lives. Stephen R. Covey the author of First Thing First shared that the key to experiencing greater fulfillment in life lies in how we invest our time. People who lives a melocrocity lives think merely of spending time but people who have achieved great heigh in life think of using it.

What is the difference between spending and using our time? I remembered once that I spend almost 8 hours inside the Bangkok airport waiting to pick up my wife and daughter from the transit flight. It was long time waiting inside the airport. There were a few options to consider. I could opt for a transit tour around the city, check out of the airport for a thai massage or do something more meaningful.

Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.

William Penn

A man who dares to waste one hour of life has not discovered the value of life.

Charles Darwin


Charles Bixton: Sayings about Time
You will never find time for anything. If you want time, you must make it.

Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them.  

~Dion Boucicault

In reality, killing time is only the name for another of the multifarious ways by which Time kills us.

~Osbert Sitwell

Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of. One man gets only a week’s value out of a year while another man gets a full year’s value out of a week.

Charles Richards

Once you have mastered time, you will understand how true it is that most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year – and underestimate what they can achieve in a decade!

Anthony Robbins


Benjamin Franklin 
Never leave that till to-morrow which you can do to-day.

Never let yesterday use up today.

Richard H. Nelson

It’s how we spend our time here and now, that really matters. If you are fed up with the way you have come to interact with time, change it.

Marcia Wieder

All that really belongs to us is time; even he who has nothing else has that.

Baltasar Gracian

If you want to make good use of your time, you’ve got to know what’s most important and then give it all you’ve got.

Lee Iacocca

It’s not enough to be busy, so are the ants. The question is, what are we busy about?

Henry David Thoreau


The time for action is now. It’s never too late to do something.

Carl Sandburg
