Posted on August 10, 2017 at 18:07 0 Comments

Though all of us have the same amount of time each day, it seems that some folks use that time more effectively than others. While we might like to think it’s because they don’t have as much on their plate as we do, that’s often not the case. Often they actually have more to do but they have just set themselves up to be extremely effective.

While this may take a little effort to set up, you don’t have to be superhuman to do…
