Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
Steve Jobs

Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils.

Always reserve enough time in your day to loaf, relax, and think creative thoughts. This will have much more of a positive effect on your financial and personal well-being than two or three hours of extra work. Not only does loafing take your imagination to greater heights, it's good for your long-term health, because it reduces stress and helps prevent many diseases. Moreover, when you loaf, you are preparing for the time when you achieve enough wealth to take it easy. You are giving yourself a taste of the freedom and prosperity that is coming to you.

Time gone.
