The Value of Time

In my line of work, with constant deadlines, I have daily races with the old man and it's all I can do to finish each race in a tie. And then it's 'time' to race again.

I'm gettin' tuckered out. I don't think a new watch is gonna help.

Time is something which increases in value as it decreases in how much we have left.

Kid, time is very very precious, in many more ways than one.

I completely agree, although I as time pressure increases, the inclination to procrastinate or surf the web increases. I'm not sure that that is 'wasted time.' Maybe we need to take breaks.
