Annie Dillard
“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing. A schedule defends from chaos and whim. It is a net for catching days. It is a scaffolding on which a worker can stand and labor with both hands at sections of time. A schedule is a mock-up of reason and order—willed, faked, and so brought into being; it is a peace and a haven set into the wreck of time; it is a lifeboat on which you find yourself, decades later, still living.”
Annie Dillard, The Writing Life

Lauren Kate

Brennan Manning
“We must be ready to allow ourselves to be interrupted by God... It is a strange fact that Christians and even ministers frequently consider their work so important and urgent that they will allow nothing to disturb them. They think they are doing God a service in this but actually they are disdaining God's "crooked but straight path". It is part of the discipline of humility that we must not spare our hand where it can perform service and that we do not assume that our schedule is our own to manage, but allow it to be arranged by God.”
Brennan Manning, The Wisdom of Tenderness: What Happens When God's Fierce Mercy Transforms Our Lives

Steve Maraboli

Joel Spolsky
“Many rookie software managers think that they can "motivate" their programmers to work faster by giving them nice, "tight" (unrealistically short) schedules. I think this kind of motivation is brain-dead. When I'm behind schedule, I feel doomed and depressed and unmotivated. When I'm working ahead of schedule, I'm cheerful and productive. The schedule is not the place to play psychological games.”
Joel Spolsky, Joel on Software

Hendrith Vanlon Smith Jr.

Hendrith Vanlon Smith Jr, CEO of Mayflower-Plymouth

Ling  Ma
“All winter long, I had glimpsed his deeply set habits, his regimented schedule. When I left, he would eat a dinner of leftovers, then continue to work until sleep. Everything revolved, to a fault, around work, around his next book project. If I had lived alone, I would have turned out the same way. It is the thing I have been most afraid of happening, my strictness toward myself calcifying into a lifestyle, my traits ingrown so deeply that my oddness surfaces, apparent to all.”
Ling Ma, Bliss Montage

Melissa Steginus

Deena Kastor
“Sometimes she chose to stay home while Coach traveled, prioritizing her own schedule and needs. Her independence reassured me. Caroline’s ability to balance independence and devotion, though, showed me it could be achieved.”
Deena Kastor, Let Your Mind Run: A Memoir of Thinking My Way to Victory

“It’s hard to make and maintain friendships on a coaching schedule, and as a result, it can be a very lonely profession. If anything, I’d like to see more reaching out among the coaches in the women’s game. It means a lot to get a phone call from a colleague remembering a birthday or commemorating a milestone. I try to reach out that way, even if it’s to say, “I know things look bad out there right now, but you’ve got a fan in me.”
C. Vivian Stringer, Standing Tall: A Memoir of Tragedy and Triumph

Emiko Jean
“My two weeks here are filled with activities. Private lessons in Japanese history, language, and arts. Tours of shrines, temples, and tombs. A visit to the imperial stock farm and wild duck preserves. Assorted banquets. Outings with my father---a baseball game, public art exhibit opening.”
Emiko Jean, Tokyo Ever After

“[Former Australian Prime Minister John Howard] would not schedule any Cabinet meetings in the evening because he'd previously observed as a minister that any meeting after dinner and a couple of glasses of wine was an 'inefficient use of time'. ... Predictable? Most of the time, yes. But in Howard's view, a regular timetable was also a courtesy, as much for other people's benefit as his own. For his security detail, younger men and women who often had children. For his staff, who regularly had to be reminded to take a lunchbreak. And also for his ministers, obliged to attend endless public functions.”
Fleur Anderson, On Sleep

Steven Magee
“My smart phone lives on my schedule.”

Emilie Wapnick
“Some multipotentialites like to create a regular schedule to use every day. One fun way to do this is to use Barbara Sher's "School Day Life Design Model." In this model, you structure your day the way a student might, going to different classes at different times - only each "class" is a different project. For example:

9 A.M.-11 A.M.: Writing YA novel

11 A.M.-3 P.M.: Building consulting business

3 P.M.-3:40 P.M.: Tinkering time

Evenings: Learning Japanese

Feel free to play with the length of your "periods," as well as the number of projects you include in your schedule. Finally! A school schedule that is totally on your terms.”

“I'm running late, but there's always time to scribble weird messages in guest signage books. Also, am I really late? The Catholic Church added a thousand years to history, so I figure I'm actually way ahead of schedule.”
Jarod Kintz, Eggs, they’re not just for breakfast

“Nobody likes change. It's an unwelcome guest to your schedule. An uninvited intruder to your schedule. It rocks your routine and can even alter your way of living. Because we live in a world that is constantly changing, we learn to live anticipating the next modification in our lives. Technology, entertainment, fashion, and even the economy are forever in a state of flux. And that's okay as long as their changes don't affect us. But inevitably, it shows up at our doorstep unannounced, taking us by surprise.”
Jeff Kinley
