We all know time is a fixed resource we all have. However, there is a way to increase the amount of time you have. No, not by sleeping less and not by messing with the Special Theory of Relativity and time travel.

Think about how much time it takes to do a routine task. What if you could reduce the amount of time it took to do that routine task and cut the time in half by being more efficient, or by using a tool or technology. You would have effectively doubled your time. The time resource hasn’t changed, but the act of being more efficient by organizing or using a tool/technology has effectively doubled your time (for the period of that task).

Take stock of what routine tasks take up time in your day and how can you perform those tasks more efficiently in order to “increase” your time. Think of all the things you could get done with just a little more time. It’s definitely worth the effort.
