How to Improve Your Time Management

Sneak Peek:

A great lesson I learned a long time ago is you don’t get paid for almost done. You only get paid when something is finished and put out there. For every great idea you’ve ever had, but failed to act on, you owe it to yourself as well as those whose lives would be irrevocably better for you finishing the job you set out to do. It may never be perfect, but that’s were the “Update” button, or a new version or a re-release comes in. If you find ways to make it better, fix it up and re-release it either as a new product, article, or revamp of an old one that you can distribute for free to those who got the first one or looked at it. It goes further than simply waiting for the perfect whatever to be completed, because it will never be perfect.
