Time is the one factor that no one can beat. No one can create time. Everyone is
limited to 24 hours each day. You can only make the most of the time you have each

Imagine how your life would transform if you were significantly more productive.
How would that affect your bank account and your life overall?
The power to be more productive is within your grasp:

an hour of work.
Set a timer for an hour and decide to spend the entire time working.
You’ll be stunned by how much more productive you are.
