If I just had a couple more hours per day I could get everything done

Sometimes it feels like you just need a couple more hours per day in order to get everything done.

Those emails from clients keep coming.

The phone keeps ringing.

And suddenly, it's 5pm and you've not done half of what you meant to today.

So it's another evening on the laptop. And even then you probably won't get it all done.

If only you had a couple more hours in each day.

Is that really what you need?

Is your problem that you don't have enough time?

Or is your actual problem that you've got too much to do.

On the surface, they sound like similar problems. But underneath, they've got very different solutions.

I'll talk about those tomorrow...
