What is your MIT?

I read a new book by Kevin Kruse on time management called "15 Secrets Successful People Know About Time Management: The Productivity Habits of 7 Billionaires, 13 Olympic Athletes, 29 Straight-A Students and 239 Entrepreneurs."

The book is much easier to read than the title.

I have read a lot of books on time management.  When you have an interest in a topic, reading more can help.  Just like reading about health, I always enjoy reading what other people say about time management.  It keeps me on track.

The one unique thought I got from the book was MIT - Most Important Thing.  By knowing what your MIT is and spending more time on it,  you will sell more Danby appliances (oops - freudian slip, your most important thing might be different)

One of the 15 secrets was this MIT.  All time management books suggest knowing priorities but this reinforced it and narrowed it to one thing.

After offering the distillation of time management ideas, Kruse included interviews with successful business people, olympic athletes and students.  This was an interesting spin.  Hearing real life people cite their tips was inspirational.

Good book - as one of the other reviewers says "take the time to read this book - it will save you time".

The snow is coming.  I was in Collingwood Sunday for the memorial service of a most lovely woman.  My ex-neighbour while I was growing up - Lydia Klein.  One thing that eulogy said that struck home was "she was a great listener.  You always felt better after speaking with her."  Quite a tribute.

This is the scene going into the church.

One of my investments, Pumpup is hitting the ball out of the park.  See this article in Business Insider.

And one of my favourite companies has introduced a line of ruggedized tablets.
