Motivational Quote - Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

Have you ever told someone or thought to yourself, “I don’t have enough time?” If you are like the majority of people, this is probably something you think about at least once a day. It seems like our lives continue getting busier but time never grown in proportion. This quote reminds us that great things can be done and have been done without increasing time. What will you do with your time today?

I agree---that "too busy" excuse is one I unconsciously use all the time. I hope I get it before I'm too busy leads to I'm too sick or worse.

Just wondering if they had household or family responsibilities or children to care for. Many on that list were single or wealthy enough to hire someone for menial tasks that needed to be done.

We are all given the same amount of time each day. What you do with those hours is up to you. As the poster says, we have the same time as some of the greatest people in history. Look what they did with their 24 hours. Stop making excuses. Get yourself organized and stop worrying about not having enough time.

This makes a great point about how people use the time that is given to them. It reminds me of another quote about not wishing time away. Wishing you were not at work, school, or in whatever situation you find yourself throughout the day. The guy speaking noted that with our limited time on this planet it is a terrible waste to wish even a second would go by faster.
