Here’s the only two snippets of advice which matter for the time poor. Forget all other advice which you have heard. Especially, the long winded advice for time saving practices, which quite frankly the irony is not lost on me.
Advice snippet no: 1 – Never double handle any task. Touch it once. Do it once.
Advice snippet no: 2 – Cut stuff out of your schedule. Do less stuff, and learn to say no.
Do these two things and life will be better. That is all.
