Successful people are different – among other things, they do a better job of managing their time.
Kevin Kruse – New York Times best-selling author, Forbes contributor and Inc. 500 award-winning entrepreneur – combines his skills as a CEO and a journalist to search for common bonds of success by surveying people of great accomplishment. In surprisingly personal replies, billionaires, entrepreneurs and Olympians stress that they make the most of every minute, at work and at play. High achievers follow a fundamental mind-set. They regard time as an asset more valuable than money and they spend every minute wisely. They focus on their top goals. They strip clutter from their workplace and reject time-consuming commitments. Even hands-on entrepreneurs delegate most tasks. In this guide brimming with verbatim insights, top achievers emphasize the need for rest, exercise and even fun – maybe that’s why Kruse included some intriguing apps. getAbstract recommends his practical advice to anyone who wants to become more efficient and more successful.
