It's 11:30 to Beyoncé somewhere

There's a motivational maxim making the rounds lately:

"You have the same 24 hours in a day as Beyoncé."

I get what it's trying to say. Superstars make it big on the same calendar as we do, so why can't we? That's fair. But it should be phrased more accurately. Something like:

"You have the same 24 hours as Beyoncé. Just different talents, connections, circumstances and divergent statuses regarding worldwide fame. Indeed, the Gregorian calendar is about all you two have in common, and Charles Manson is on board as well."

But I suppose that isn't quite as motivational.
