" Time - consume it with purpose and direction, for it is those things in limited supply we misuse the most."
Copyright 2007 James Clark
I wrote this in response to how I have been living my life and observing those around me. I am saddened at times with the frenetic pace people are living their lives. Children are whisked away from sporting event to sporting event almost every night of the week. In many cases, one parent taking one to one place and the other somewhere else. Adults spending 60-70 hours a week a work seeking that next promotion where they will work 60-70 hours week for the next. Time is a commodity like money. The more thought that goes into planning its use, the greater the return. Once it's gone though, it's gone. Spend $20-25 zipping through for fast food on the way to your next appointment or use that same time and spend that same amount to fix and share a meal together.

" You are the only person whom controls your mind. You can over or under think a situation till it drives you crazy, but again, you control it. Once you let other people get into your head, you lose your own voice. Your mind is yours alone. Don't let anyone claim it, no matter how great it might seem at that moment. Bottom line: you are the one who has to live with the consequences."

" Find something you love to do and you'll never work another day in your life."
Harvey Mackay --- Submitted by Norman Zeno --- California
I love my job. When I come to work, my co-workers ask me why I answer the phones when I'm not on the clock. I tell them I don't feel like I'm working, and I do it because I enjoy it. You can find a job that pays top wages and hate it, or you can find a job that pays low wages and love it.
