This book educates you to use your time effectively, meaning you focus more on what you’re spending your time on than how much time you're spending. Learn how to specify your preferences, schedule daily and weekly levels, and find win-win reliefs among people. 

The bookmarked a revolutionary departure from traditional information on time management, which inclines to underline speed and control, as it concentrates instead on outcomes and the personal objectives of each individual to achieve overall achievement and fulfillment.
