"The busiest people I have known in my life always have time enough to do everything. Those who do nothing are always tired and pay no attention to the little amount of work they are required to do. They complain constantly that the day is too short. The truth is, they are afraid to fight a good fight."
Page 51 of Pilgrimage, by Paulo Coelho

Like UTP said, time management is all you need.

This is so true.

They say the more time you have, the more time you will waste.

P.S. The tagline of your blog is a real eye opener.

Razz said...

@UTP, Reza
True. But with so much on your mind, sometimes it becomes kinda difficult. Time management is an art, one that not everyone is good at

Maybe :)

Welcome to the blog!

Welcome to you too! Keep visiting! :)

I've lived this truth, like really! Whenever I have a gazillion things to do I find myself with more and more time and I manage it all wonderfully. But on the days where I have had nothing to do I feel there isn't much time and I would actually complain about the lack of it, and once on the phone with a friend I said that people who are constantly doing things don't have the time to complain that they don't have time, they just do their work!

Razz said...


Agreed. I've made it a point not to complain about the lack of time anymore :)
