OVERCOMING TIME POVERTY-The difference between time and money is this: You know when you’re out of money
HOW TO ACHIEVE MORE BY WORKING LESS
Why Are You Reading This Book?
You’re probably reading this book because you think you don’t have enough time in your life. And you probably think you can fix this problem if you can just become more efficient.
If that’s the way you feel, then close this book, take it back to the store, and get a refund. I can’t help you. You see, this is not a book about becoming more efficient at what you are doing now. There are books on time management to help organize your life. Go get one of them.
The truth is, you are already efficient at what you are doing! You don’t need more time to do the same things you are doing now. You need to do different things in order to have more time in your life!
IF you are a typical person reading this book, you sense you are in trouble. You have overscheduled your life and the lives of your children. You can’t seem to get ahead. You can’t even seem to keep up. You reach the end of each day completely exhausted, stressed out, and dreading another day, another month, another year of this frenzied existence.
Yet, you are part of the most productive, most efficient work-force that ever inhabited this planet. You have technology at your fingertips, convenience foods to prepare, entertainment in your living room, and 24-hour access to the world via the World Wide Web.
You are doing everything at the speed of light. Your have voice-mail, e-mail, instant messaging and downloadable movies. You don’t have to wait for anything.
And you thought I would teach you how to do all this stuff faster? No Way.
If you are like most people, you are:
Not time management? Then what is this book about?
I am going to teach you to overcome TIME POVERTY. I define TIME POVERTY like this:
When you don’t have the time to do the things you really WANT to do, because you are too busy doing the things you think you have to do.
Let me repeat that, so it really sinks in:
Time poverty is: When you don’t have the time to do the things you really wants to do, because you are too busy to doing the things you think you HAVE to do
When we think of poverty, we usually think in terms of financial poverty. But unlike financially poor people who don’t have money, Time-Poor people do have time. Remember, everyone gets the same 24 hours each day.
You will learn to overcome Time poverty in this book. I will teach a simple 5-Step system to get our this rat race by getting off the Fast Track at work. YOu will learn how to reconnect with the important people in your life. You will learn to live fully, and teach other people to do the same.
