Brilliant time quotes and stats that'll make you think!

Time is a commodity everyone has the same amount of – there are only ever going to be 24 hours a day and 7 days a week – but some people end up using it much more wisely than others.

How is this possible?

They seem to get so much more done – but while it may seem like magic, it’s just great use of the time they do have.

They are simply more productive with their time – and make it all count – doing whatever they want to do in it – but making the choices well so they don’t feel rushed, busy, or lacking in time at all.

And so today I wanted to look at a few brilliant (and fascinating!) quotes and statistics all related to time and productivity – in order to think a bit about what can be done to make better use of it (whatever that means for you).

Whatever you want in life, you can create the time to achieve it, if you want to – and these quotes & stats are ones that I hope will put time in some perspective for you – hope you like them!
