Time Management Warning

Have you ever heard that a glorious failure is better than a petty success? I suppose the idea is that at least you've tried and stretched yourself to the limit and maybe even learned from the experience. According to Arnold Bennett in chapter three of How to Live on 24 Hours a Day, this does not apply when it comes to better managing your time. He says,
"A glorious failure leads to nothing; a petty success may lead to a success that is not petty."
So start small when learning to better manage your time and then build on your success.

He also points out that all your future time is awaiting you, not caring if you've wasted your previous allotment.
"You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose."
How cool is that? Unlimited do-overs!

So...do you want more from life? If so, how will you start small and better manage your time today? What little changes can you make in your schedule? Remember, small changes done consistently have the greatest effect - so go make a small change, ok?
