For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way. Something to begot through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me thatthese obstacles were my life.
One of the best lessons that anyone can learn in life is how to use time wisely. Consider what can be done in ten minutes. If you need a little mental relaxation, you can sit down with a friend and play a game of cards. If you need some physical recreation, you can engage in a few exercises that will help tone up your body. Perhaps you have a friend who for weeks or months has been looking for a letter. Then there may be among your acquaintances someone whose friendship you would value highly and whose counsel would be profitable. Learn to use ten minutes intelligently. It will pay you huge dividends.
