I read this quote a while back and thought it was insightful!
source: Nicolas Hayek, Cofounder & CEO of the Swatch Group, Biel-Benne, Switzerland
"Time is both wonderful and horrible. It's wonderful, because it holds so much fantastic possibilities. It is my work and my life. I creat beautiful objects that measure time. If time didn't exist, then my profession wouldn't exist. I wouldn't have 42 watch plants. I wouldn't have built a company with $3 billion in sales. I wouldn't be a billionaire. And I wouldn't have given pleasure to the many people who have bought my watches."
"Yet I hate time. Why? Because you cannot keep it. You cannot catch it. You cannot stop it. You cannot possess it. It's always present, but if you try to hold it, it disappears." "We all feel important. I certainly do. I walk around the streets of Switzerland and people recognize me. I saved the Swiss-watch industry. What does time do? It turns me to dust. I am a tiny particle on a tiny planet in a vast universe. In the end, I am even less than that."
"So never try to manage time. It will beat you at every turn. Never try to plan your days and nights minute by minute. Do schedule your time, but never schedule 100% of it. You'll kill your creative impulse if you do. Never try to organize every time of your time weeks in advance, or you'll be bored to death. Instead, let time renew itself around you. Let it divert you. Let it do something unexpected, something new. Let it bring nice things, and let it bring bad things over which you have no control. And don't try to use personal tricks to fool time. It will always catch up with you."
