time-management-quotes

concept: me, sitting in a café and revising my notes. on the table are my favourite stationery and drink, and I am thinking about the great things I have planned for later. I enjoy my studies a lot, and am able to manage my time so I can both study and relax doing what I love. I have a healthy sleeping-schedule and am refreshed and at peace with myself and my life.

student stereotypes
  • the "general step-mom": very organised, does things ASAP, constantly reminds you of the work you need to do, loves to say i told you so when your stupid ass keeps on postponing said homework until it's almost too late, also checks in to make sure that you managed on time. quote: "have you started on the homework yet?"
  • the "head-in-the-clouds genius": never knows what the fuck is going on, doesn't come to most classes, always has to get reminded about homework and deadlines (repeatedly for the same thing as well), always manages to pass all the exams with pretty high grades in the end. quote: "homework?????? what homework?????"
  • the "duty-bound procrastinator": knows exactly what the fuck is going on, does nothing about the things that need to be done, always finds something else to do instead, feels anxious for postponing all of it, does everything the last second and says it's never going to happen again (a lie). quote: "fuck, homework. i'll, uh, start right after i finish with this movie marathon."

  • 707: Ugh! Today is the worst day ever!
  • Yoosung: Is it because you can't focus on your work, since you're so worried about MC and all you'd been doing is making robot pets while dropping lowkey hints that you have feelings for her??
  • 707: No, because it's a little humid-... OF COURSE! It's because I can't focus on my work, since I'm so worried about MC and all I'd been doing is making robot pets while dropping lowkey hints that I have feelings for he- WAIT WHAT!?!?

“I would like, stare at my salad, and that was like really the first time I ever really had like flashes of the whole world like falling apart of collapsing. Like, the salad just didn’t make any sense at all, if that makes any sense. Like, ‘what the hell is happening, why is there like, little pieces of plants on a plate? Like, what is going on?’ and it’s like this little moments when like nothing makes any sense at all.”

Andrew VanWyngarden.

Not having enough time" and “having little time left” mean two different things and give different feelings. If you feel like you don’t have enough time, you will rush; you will hurry; you will try to get as many things done at once. But if you feel like you have little time left, you will do the most important thing first; you won’t procrastinate; you won’t postpone. But most importantly, you will do one thing at a time.
—  Buddha

Writers are always anxious, always on the run-from the telephone, from responsibilities, from the distractions of the world. Edna O’Brien

There is no guarantee that tomorrow at this time we will be here.  But still we are working for that purely on the basis of hope.  So, we need to make the best use of our time.  I believe that the proper utilization of time is this: if you can, serve other people, other sentient beings.  If not, at least refrain from harming them.  I think that is the whole basis of my philosophy.
—  Dalai Lama, The Art of Happiness
