From a time management book ‘How to invest your time to increase your value 10 times’, which was written by a Japanese famous writer KATUMA KAZUYO.
The most important and valuable resource is time. You can’t buy or create it. That’s the reason why you have to do everything to make time.
Things you shouldn’t do
Do your best without any help from new tools or methods.
Start a new thing which will take long time without reducing what would take long time.
Do not take a ‘Check’ among ‘Do-Plan-Check’ steps.
You need or need to
Commitment device which will push you to do what you plan.
Get deep understanding by learning theories.
Get help from people around you or experts.
Understand why it doesn’t work.
Your own way, not somebody else’s.
Sometimes a great change takes great changes. For instance, getting a new job or a new house. Usually this means you have to take risks.
