- Researchers Gloria Mark and Victor Gonsalez of the University of California, Irvine, found that once interrupted, it takes workers 25 minutes to return to the original task, if they return at all.
- The cost of interruptions to the US economy is estimated at $588 billion a year. (Jonathan B. Spira, “The Cost of Not Paying Attention,” Basex Research, 2005)

Time is one of the most precious and sought after resources we have. And in spite of all our efforts, it’s the one resource we simply cannot grow: Our time.
No matter how early we get up or how late we wind down, there are only so many hours in a day. For many of us, the only way to get “more” time is to use the time we have more efficiently.
When you can use your time more efficiently you feel more in control over your time and you have more confidence.
Imagine the feeling at the end of the day, knowing you accomplished everything you set out to do and made the best use of your time.
So, how can you get more time! This workbook will give you some immediate strategies you can do right away and you will start to really look at the big picture of being aware of your time and how to start taking control.
