I really impress Allan Inocente's talk about Time is Gold. The way he explained the reasons have some logic. I bet he discovered and learned from his and people's life.

1. You can never get it back
The only thing in this world that you cannot get back (aside from life itself) is time. When you’ve spent 30 minutes of your time, you can not get it back, however you desperately want it. You can invent the greatest time machine all you want, but at this point in human evolution, there’s just no way of turning back time. That’s why the emotion of “regret” is very powerful. If only you could turn back time somehow, you would give everything just to have it.
2. You only have 24 hours in a day
This is really an amazing equalizer. Everyone gets the same chance at life. We all have 24 hours in a day. Even the richest people on earth only have 24 hours in a day. The poorest of the poor also have 24 hours in a day. The only difference are they use their 24 hours very differently. If you don’t like what your life is right now, there’s only one thing you need to do — change the way you spend your time.
3. You can leverage your time
Why is it that even though everyone only has 24 hours in a day, some people can get a lot more done than others? Reason? Leverage. Henry Sy employs thousands of people to run his business empire. By so doing, he multiplies his time by thousands. With that thousands of hours, millions is earned by his businesses each single day.
Compared that into a one-man show employee. His single-handed efforts, without any form of leverage, can only get to 24 hours, no matter how strong or skilled he may be.
4. You can make the most of what you have
The hard truth is that your time is limited. You never know when your time will end. But one thing is for sure, you can make the most of the time that you have.
Spend your “golden” time with your loved ones. Take care of them. Enjoy what life has to offer. Remember that we are just passers by in this world we call life. When you live your life by the moment, you leave a long-lasting impression into the lives of other people…and your life’s meaning would be fulfilled.
