About This Quote

When it comes to time, there are two forces that determine the value of our time. The first is the length of time we spend in jobs, relationships, and other obligations. The second influence on the value of time is the quality of our experience. If we spend our time doing things that are not meaningful or fulfilling, it is easy to become disenchanted about the value of our time. But if we spend our time doing meaningful things, we can appreciate what we do for ourselves and for others.
