The Secret Of Getting Things Done

"You may sometimes grumble about the advantages other people seem to have - in appearance, in money, in that elusive asset we call a "pleasing personality," or in social connections - but you cannot accuse Father Time of being partial to any man. Every morning he hands out to all of us 1,440 brand-new, unused minutes, ours to waste, or to put to work according to our own personal inclinations. It makes no difference who we are, or what we do. Rich man, poor man, beggar-man, thief - everybody gets the same allotment of time - not a second more, not a second less. And nobody has the right to say what you shall do with your portion. But time is rationed, and you can't go back to get an additional supply."

A Help-Your-Self Booklet, 1959
