The Value of Time

To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask the student who has failed a class.

To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask the mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask a colleague when he or she returns from vacation.

To realize the value of ONE DAY, ask a daily newspaper reporter.

To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask the person who has missed a train.

To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask the person who has survived an accident.

To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympics.

To realize the value of ONE NANOSECOND, ask a Hardware Designer.

And if you still don’t realize the value of time ... You must be a Software Developer.
