How often we hear guys shrugging off casually: 'ugh, time is short, we're busy' I think, we all have 24 hours in a day, 7 days a week, yielding 168 hours per week. Take away the sleep hours and hours engaged in fetching results we desire! Hence, its wise to work `smarter' than work `harder' and this requires efficient `Time Management' Walt Whitman, the poet, said it best, "The most powerful time is when we are alone, thinking about what we are to do."
