Building in lots of cushion time in your schedule and preventing being always in a hurry is a great investment in yourself and in the quality of life of those around you.
Because being in a rush may be preventing you from being the kind of person you want to be—the kind to stop and help someone in need.

Take time to evaluate how you invest your time. A good system could include:
Proactively invest your time in your health by eating well, exercising regularly, getting plenty of sleep, and regularly seeing your doctors.
Make sure you also invest in the other markers of well-being: emotional, mental, and spiritual health.
It requires slowing down and taking time to really look at the colors of the leaves, or eating slowly to enjoy the texture of a bite.
Investing time in savoring all the unique sensorial moments of your day will guarantee your moments don’t flash by in a dull blur.
If you’re spending more time putting out fires than building the right foundations, you’ll never get out ahead of your to-do list.
Spend time building relationships, identifying opportunities, time for prevention and planning.
Investing in do-nothing time will help us slow down and experience a different pace of life, in which time’s value is not measured by its productivity.
Investing some up-front time in creating better, more organized systems will reap you lots of time in the long run.
For example, put a key hook by the door so that you don’t spend five minutes every morning hunting for your keys.
Even if these two share some connections, time isn't money. Time is energy, money is a thing. And they each have power over our lives.
Money is infinite but time is not. You can always get a part-time job or start a side gig, but you’ll never be able to get back this moment or this day. Equating the two I think diminishes the value of time in a way.
Let go of activities that no longer make sense.
Quit a recurring meeting. Quit a committee. Quit Social media. Quit a program. By doing this, you automatically open up space.
