“Time is a very difficult thing to pin down, there this famous saying of St. Augustine of Hippo, when he asked, ‘What is time?’ he said, ‘I know what it is, but when you ask me I don’t.’ Yet it seems absolutely fundamental to our life, ‘Time is money.’ we say, ‘I don’t have enough time.’ ‘Time flies.’ ‘Time drags.’ And I think we should go into the question what this is…”― Alan Watts

“When you think about the things we say about time – time is money, time is running out, time flies, I don’t have enough time – are they true? Are the things we say about money true?”― Jullien Gordon

“All we have is time. That’s the one thing we do have.”― Jullien Gordon

“Work expands to fill space and time.”― Parkinson’s Law

“In high school and college, I didn’t buy into the notion that I ‘needed more time’ because my results were actually better when I was busier… which manifested later in my career as Workaholism.”― Jullien Gordon

“Wealth don’t buy health.”― Pusha T

“Looking back, experiencing the deaths of young people when I was young myself got me believing that “time was short’ and I was rushing to complete and achieve things based on this timeline in my head.”― Jullien Gordon

“Time is simply a tool that we created to measure the distance between events and objects.”― Jullien Gordon

“Life can be limiting when we live our lives according to time and timelines.”― Jullien Gordon

“The key to experiencing More Happy Hours is that you are living this thing called life in the way that you want. Knowing this has been crucial as I unlearn old untruths from my past.”― Jullien Gordon

“Each week on Sunday night, I set my intentions for the week and choose how I want to spend my time.”― Jullien Gordon

“My gratitude journal has helped me think of my life not in the hours I’ve worked, but in the millionaire moments I’ve experienced.”― Jullien Gordon

“I don’t believe that time is cyclical, because every moment is new.”― Jullien Gordon

“Life is made up of many years. Years are made up of many days. Days are made up of many hours. Hours are made up of many minutes, and minutes are made up of many moments. And the more millionaire moments you notice, the richer your life will be.”― Jullien Gordon

Join the Conversation

I do not claim to be a thought leader on all of these subjects, but I am a thought breeder. My favorite part of doing these podcasts is participating in the conversation they breed. Each week, I ask one question. This week, it is this:

Define what Time is to you. What is time to you, and what do you believe about it? How has your relationship to time changed over time? Share your answer on , , or .

This Week’s Challenge

Set your intentions for the upcoming week before it begins. Choose a time maximization tool which works for you, and schedule how you’re going to live your week in advance.

After you’ve lived your intentional week, I’d love to hear your new insights about time.
