How to live on 24 Hours a Day read by Russ Williams
Arnold Bennett's classic 'Time Management' book that most certainly still rings true today as we strive to control our busy lives.
We tend to value money more rather than time, in the words of Bennett…'Newspapers are full of articles explaining how to live on such-and-such a sum…but I have never seen an essay 'how to live on 24 hours a day.' Yet it has been said that time is money. That proverb understates the case. Time is a great deal more than money. If you have time, you can obtain money-usually. But…you cannot buy yourself a minute more time'.
You will learn how to make the time you need to acquire what you want out of life and what you want to achieve. There is no magic formula just an explanation of how most people use and waste their time and he shows you another way of using time to your best advantage.
Bennett combines his reasoned and proven methods to explain with a fair degree of humour where people go wrong and how to avoid a typical day can be altered for the better even if you have a demanding full-time job.
Time is precious. 'We shall never have more time. We have, and have always had, all the time there is.' says Bennett.
Working on the 'mind' is key to Bennett. The first thing to do he says, is not to consider your life is your workday.
He offers a solution to reading a newspaper or scrolling social media pages on the morning commute and explains the changes you can make and how to do them to make the most of your time. Evenings are a bug bear of Bennett's too.
They are rife for aimless time wasting and this is an area of your being and consciousness that needs to be and can be easily addressed.
Arnold Bennett embraces every minute of his day and uses his time to great effect and success. He certainly doesn't have any anxiety or stress to contend with.
'How To Live On 24 Hours A Day' will make you smile, make you embarrassed and give you a completely new understanding of TIME and how best to use it for your benefit and that of your work life and family life. It is one of the classic time management books.
"You say your day is already full to overflowing. How? You actually spend in earning your livelihood – how much? Seven hours on the average. And in sleep, seven? I will add another two to be generous. And I will defy you to account for me the other 8 hours on the spur of the moment".
