We all have 24 hours a day 7 days a week, yet it seems like some have figured out how to multiply those hours. I decided a long time ago that I wanted to be one of those people. I want to multiply my time. I want the less important to take less time, and I want more time for the more important.
How does one find more time? For me, I found it in the pages of books, written by others further along in the quest to manage time.
