“Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.'” 

Lao Tzu

How we create and use time reflects our priorities and desires.

Lao Tzu, an ancient Chinese philosopher, offers a perspective that challenges our conventional view of time as a fixed entity. By stating that time is a “created thing,” he suggests that our relationship with time is more about priority and choice than about the quantity of time available. This quote invites us to examine how we excuse our actions with the scarcity of time and encourages us to take ownership of how we allocate this precious resource. It’s a call to align our time investment with our true priorities and values, shaping our lives consciously and purposefully.
