Managing Time

  • Effective executives do not start with their tasks. 
  • They start with their time. 
  • They do not start out with planning. 
  • They start by finding out where their time actually goes. Then they attempt to manage their time and cut back unproductive demands on their time. 
  •  Finally, they consolidate their “discretionary” time into the largest possible continuing units.

Time is the most valuable resource, as one can hire great people but cannot rent, hire, buy or obtain more time.
