Listen to the wise…
“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.” - Earl Nightingale
“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” - Harriet Beecher Stowe
“Time can be an ally or an enemy. What it becomes depends entirely upon you, your goals, and your determination to use every available minute.” - Zig Ziglar
“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.” - Lance Armstrong
“We have to live life with a sense of urgency so not a minute is wasted.” - Les Brown
Do what you desire. Act or don’t.
At the end of the day
It’s just a minute.
