Don't Wish for More Hours

From Chris Do's tweet:

Don’t wish for more hours in the day. Do more with the hours you already have.

We all have access to the same amount of hours during the day. Yet, we wish to have more hours. But one question would always come to mind—if you got more hours. Would we still wish for more?

I believe it all boils down to how we spend our time. If we want to accomplish some goals, and want to realize our dreams. If binge-watching YouTube videos or series is what we do all day, every day—it would be pretty hard to get those hours back.

The question is also whether there is something that gives us the feeling of needing more hours.

Viggo Mortensen puts it nicely:

One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. He told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life. We live as though there aren't enough hours in the day but if we do each thing calmly and carefully we will get it done quicker and with much less stress

We don't have control over what has already happened, but we do have control over the time that's available to us now. "The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one", said by Mark Twain.
