Napoleon said that he could always recover lost space but never lost time.  At the battle of Gettysburg, 215 of 262 members of the Minnesota First Volunteers became casualties charging against a Confederate force that was six times its size.  Union General Hancock ordered them to charge all because he needed 15 more minutes to reinforce an open gap in the Federal lines. Vince Lombardi never conceded defeat, only admitting “we ran of time.”  Steven Jobs declared the most precious resource human beings have is time.  This morning, I hit the snooze button for a handful of minutes that I’ll never remember.
