You must master your time rather than becoming a slave to the constant flow of events and demands on your time. (Brian Tracy, Canadian-born American self-improvement author)

Although life spans will differ, we are all given the same number of days in a week, hours in a day, and minutes in an hour. Once we reach a certain age or maturity, and, assuming a level of good health, how we use those minutes, hours, and days is entirely up to us. Let’s learn to value our time even more highly than we value material wealth.

See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:15-17).
