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.
