Nine days ago, I officially marked the beginning of a personal year. My birthdays have over the years brought out the sentimentality in me to think about and write likewise – on those days – the events I think have shaped my year. This year was different though… extraneous circumstances prevented that.

Yet, for a while now, I’ve been immersed in the subject of TIME and what it means to each individual, at least to me. I’ve been wondering which is more important; the past, the present, the future. I found a handful of quotes that predominantly have to do with time. Here they are for your consumption:


 

There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart. So you’d better learn the sound of it. Otherwise you’ll never understand what it’s saying.” 
― Sarah Dessen


 

 “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” 

– Mother Teresa


 

 

“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.” 
― George Harrison


 

“Just because I liked something at one point in time doesn’t mean I’ll always like it, or that I have to go on liking it at all points in time as an unthinking act of loyalty to who I am as a person, based solely on who I was as a person. To be loyal to myself is to allow myself to grow and change, and challenge who I am and what I think. The only thing I am for sure is unsure, and this means I’m growing, and not stagnant or shrinking.” 
― Jarod Kintz


 

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.” 
― Eric Roth


 

“I don’t understand people who say they need more “Me Time.” What other time is there? Do these people spend part of their day in someone else’s body?” 
― Jarod Kintz

The demand for Omo, Indomie, Butter, Maggi as far as the Nigerian market is concerned is very high. But if you decide to investigate the actual products people buy, you might find out there’s an assorted mix of (Sunlight, Ariel, Klin), (Dangote, Honeywell, chicken chicken), (Blueband margarine, Summer County), (Knorr, Royco) and a host of other names I’ve not thrown in the fray.

The bottom line is that excellence, longevity and quality have stood them out as the ‘standard’ and hence, the generic names for Detergents, noodles, food spread and food (cubic/cuboid) seasoning.

It’s only natural that years of hard work and a definite drive at process and production improvement is the reward of the aforementioned household essentials.

As far as man is concerned also, a resolute commitment to tasks and values alike sets one apart as the standard even in the company of outstanding fellas.

Overnight Success is not a sudden event. It is rather a process which is distinguished by the final appearance of something one has been working on over time. There’s no reasonable substitute for determined commitment.

 

The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
