Time is the Coin of Your Life

I’ve been spending my free time the last few days working through Hillary Rodham Clinton’s new book, What Happened.  I’m burning through it fairly quickly, though I have to admit, as a young woman pursuing a profession, it’s heartbreaking at times and I have to put it down.  Throughout the book, Hillary Rodham Clinton has sprinkled a lot of great quotes, and I thought I would share with you one of my favourites so far:

Time is the coin of your life.  You spend it.  Do not allow others to spend it for you.

– Carl Sandberg

Saying “no” to people who are asking for your time can be very difficult.  I think this quote serves as a beautiful little reminder to be intentional with how you use your time, even if it means pushing back on others when it’s necessary.
