But 24 hours is 24 hours is 24 hours. So what can you manage? You can manage yourself. It's kinda one of those mindset shifts (ya know, like our ideal client vs ideal philosophy mindset shift)--instead of learning how to manage time (which is impossible unless you've invented time travel), we need to learn how to manage ourselves better.Read More
