Your greatest asset

The older I get, the more I realise this.

My single greatest asset in life is my time. Nothing is more valuable to me than my time.

If you spend money you can make it back, but time, once gone, is gone forever.

I absolutely hate wasting time. I hate being stuck in traffic because it robs me of time I could be spending with my family or doing something productive. I love technology because it enables me to generate more time to do the things I love.


This is a message for everyone, but particularly for students: treasure your time. Guard it. Don’t waste it. If you have a dream for your life, stay focussed on it and don’t get distracted. Invest time into it, and understand that you will never again have the opportunities you have now.

Steve Jobs, founder of Apple said, “My favourite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.”

Don’t let it get away from you.
