We never have enough time to do things right, but we always have enough time to do things over.

Ephesians 5:15-16: Be very careful, then, how you live - not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is.

Amplified version: Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as the wise - sensible, intelligent people; making the very most of the time, buying up each opportunity because the days are evil.

There if no right way to do something wrong. Time is valuable. It is important how we invest it.

The great dividing line between success and failure can be expressed in six words, "I do not have the time."
-Robert J. Hastings

We often are so busy "putting out fire," so to speak, that we find it difficult to do the planning that would prevent those fires from occurring in the first place. As a prominent educator has expressed it, Americans generally "spend so much time on things that are urgent that we have none left to spend on those that are important."
- Gustav Metzman
