Do the most important thing first.
  • the decisions and choices that you make throughout the day tend to drain your willpower. You're less likely to make a good decision at the end of the day than you are at the beginning.
  • do your best to make sure that if there is something important that you need to do, then you do it first.
  • If you do the most important thing first, then you’ll never have a day when you didn’t get something important done.

Eliminate half-work at all costs.
  • Regardless of where and how you fall into the trap of half-work, the result is always the same: you're never fully engaged in the task at hand, you rarely commit to a task for extended periods of time, and it takes you twice as long to accomplish half as much.
  • pick one exercise and make it your only focus for the entire workout.
  • carve out a few hours (or even an entire work day) to deep dive on an important project.

Time is our precious resource. It is perishable, it is irreplaceable, and it cannot be saved. It can only be reallocated from activities of lower value to activities of higher value.

Time management refers to how you schedule and organize your time for different activities.
