Think about your daily routine: How much time do you really devote to various tasks and to-dos? If you’re like most people, you probably don’t track it—and you probably have more detours to productivity than you realize.
Take, for example, the daily dilemma of what to wear to work or other activities. Your closet is likely full of all sorts of clothes that may or may not match (or be ironed). And you might try on at least one, if not several, different things before deciding what to wear.
But what if you could recapture that time—even just 10 minutes—and use it elsewhere in your day, simply by eliminating the choice? It’s a small decision, but one that successful people such as the late Steve Jobs realized: The little decisions added up, and by skipping those, one could end up with more time to dream, to think, and to plan.
