The Art of Personal Efficiency.
To manage others successfully, a man must first manage himself. Personal efficiency is creative self-management. It is not getting ahead of others, but getting ahead of yourself.
It is having the drive to get started on the task at hand. “Life leaps like a geyser,” wrote Alexis Carrel, “for those who drill through the rock of inertia.”
It is experimenting to find the best, easiest and quickest ways of getting things done.
It is putting first things first, doing one thing at a time and developing the art of intensive concentration.
It is breaking big tasks down into their smaller parts, simplifying the complex, finishing the big job one step at a time.
. . .
It is organizing your personal life for efficient living in all the important areas: work, play, love and worship.
It is making time to live for you by making the most of every minute.
