Can You Make An Hour?
Have you come across anyone who has not felt or said, “ There is so much I want to do. So little time to do it.” If you too feel that you don’t have enough time to accomplish whatever you want to, ask yourself:
Can I make, squeeze-in an hour a day?
If you wonder what could you do with an hour a day, consider what Orison Swett Marden said in his highly inspiring book, Making Life A Masterpiece, over a hundred years ago. It holds true even today.
“ I wish it were possible to blazon on the sky, where it would burn itself into the consciousness of every youth, the marvellous results of even one hour a day spent in persistent, concentrated, earnest self-culture.
What young man is really too busy to give an hour a day to self improvement, self enlargement?
One hour a day for a short time profitably employed would enable men of ordinary capacity to master a complete science.
One hour a day in ten years would make an ignorant man a well-informed man.
In an hour a day a boy or girl could read twenty pages thoughtfully — more than seven thousand pages a year or eighteen large volumes.
An hour a day might make — nay has made — an unknown man famous, a useless man a benefactor of his race.
Think of the might possibilities of two — four — yes, even six hours a day that are often thrown away by young men and women in frivolous amusement.”
