Thing is, if I do want to improve myself in terms of where (and how) I invest my time — just approximate numbers wouldn’t do. So I’m now tracking the time I spend on each Q&A.

- “Do a time audit for one week and look at exactly where your time is going. Notice where you spend your time on a regular week day. Notice how you use time at a weekend.” – Frances Booth
- “if you forgive yourself for not getting started already, you’ll be much more apt to finally get going.” – Drake Baer
- “Maximize time with people that refuel your energy” – Ivan Misner (Ivan’s quote relates to a previous post I did about the kind of people that can help on your journey towards being your best-self)
