Anne Lamott
“Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report written on birds that he'd had three months to write, which was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books about birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said, "Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

Sylvia Plath
“Life was not to be sitting in hot amorphic leisure in my backyard idly writing or not-writing, as the spirit moved me. It was, instead, running madly, in a crowded schedule, in a squirrel cage of busy people. Working, living, dancing, dreaming, talking, kissing — singing, laughing, learning. The responsibility, the awful responsibility of managing (profitably) 12 hours a day for 10 weeks is rather overwhelming when there is nothing, noone, to insert an exact routine into the large unfenced acres of time — which it is so easy to let drift by in soporific idling and luxurious relaxing. It is like lifting a bell jar off a securely clockwork-like functioning community, and seeing all the little busy people stop, gasp, blow up and float in the inrush, (or rather outrush,) of the rarified scheduled atmosphere — poor little frightened people, flailing impotent arms in the aimless air. That's what it feels like: getting shed of a routine. Even though one had rebelled terribly against it, even then, one feels uncomfortable when jounced out of the repetitive rut. And so with me. What to do? Where to turn? What ties, what roots? as I hang suspended in the strange thin air of back-home?”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Ashley Ormon
“You can't make up for lost time. You can only do better in the future.”

Stephen Richards
“How often do you find yourself saying, “In a minute”, “I’ll get to it” or “Tomorrow’s good enough” and every other possible excuse in the book? Compare it with how often you decide it’s got to be done, so let’s get on and do it! That should tell you just how serious your procrastinating problem really is.”
Stephen Richards, The Secret of Getting Started: Strategies to Triumph over Procrastination

“Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.”
Yale Richmond, Understanding the Americans: A Handbook for Visitors to the United States

“To have more peace, as well as more time, start by letting go of the notion that time can be manipulated. Then, let go of the idea that it confines you. Instead, set out to use the time that is there for its true and best purpose – as the space within which you can live your life to the fullest.”
Michelle Passoff

Norton Juster

Lauren Oliver
“Here's the last thing that occurs to me as Sarah recedes in the rearview mirror, slamming out of the car, jogging across the parking lot: If you're one tardy away from missing out on a big competition, you should probably make your coffee at home.”
Lauren Oliver, Before I Fall

Arthur Schopenhauer
“A precondition for reading good books is not reading bad ones: for life is short.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, On the Suffering of the World

“Musicians, like golfers, have to put their minds in the right place – trusting, confident, enjoying the pressure, being in present. And so forth. Otherwise, no amount of practice or “Time management” will make them better. The same is true in all professions: if you’re stuck in the Training Mindset, evaluating yourself, or thinking in the past or future, you will not perform up to your potential. You will waste a lot of time, be an inefficient performer, and likely assume you need to manage your time better. In reality you need to manage your thinking better. ”
John Eliot, Overachievement: The New Science of Working Less to Accomplish More

John Agno
“Truth flows from universal law, not personal views.”

“The things you do in life should serve some positive purpose. Worrying is not one of those things. Work hard to build positive mental habits and let go of everything that does not serve you.”
Akiroq Brost

“Learn to make time and everything else will follow.”
Haresh Sippy

“Guard your time. Time is so precious. Use it wisely. Don't waste it. Live in the present.”
Akiroq Brost

“You must vie with time's swiftness in the speed of using it, and, as from a torrent that rushes by and will not always flow, you must drink quickly.”
Seneca, On the Shortness of Life
