day, it will take you all day.
If you give yourself two things to do, you get them both done.
If you give yourself twelve things to do, you may not get twelve done,
but you probably will get nine done.
Having a lot to do automatically helps you to become a better time
manager. “If you want to get something done, give it to the busiest

the ladder and you want to increase the velocity. You feel the need to
