Early yesterday it started making rounds on Twitter that a BlackLiesMatter Toronto co-founder had tweeted this:
“There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.”
– Lemony Snicket
The key is in not spending time, but in investing it.
Stephen R. Covey
The previous are two quotes I feel like properly illustrate the concept I’m about to explain here, which is frankly – Investing your time unwisely for the sake of patience is not good nor a virtue, but rather a waste of time. As the saying goes time is money, which means that wasting one is wasting both as an interconnection of the two. While I don’t necessarily agree with this in the terms of all life situations, I find a better term to be “Time is worth the value of the money you’re losing or gaining during said time period”.
