About Happy About An Extra Hour a Day
Every day has exactly 1,440 minutes in it. Whether you work for a Fortune 500 company, run your own small business or are an independent freelancer, the way you spend those minutes helps or hinders the goals you want to achieve.
Nicolas Soergel, author of the new book Happy About An Extra Hour Everyday (Happy About, 2009) says anyone can create extra time in their life by increasing their efficiency. “If you can save one minute, 60 times a day, you can gain the extra hour needed to make your dreams happen,” says Soergel.
Throughout Happy About An Extra Hour Everyday the author offers easy to implement, time saving tips that he terms "quick wins".
