You can read all sorts of tips and articles on how to "save time", but as Laura Vanderkam points out in her TED talk, "we don't build the lives we want by saving time. We build the lives we want, and then time saves itself." In other words, "time is a choice."
Whether the goal is to clean out the garage, read a book, get to the gym and work out every day or do those taxes, we've all found ourselves using the excuse "we don't have time" and pushing it aside for later, when we think we'll magically have more time.

If you find yourself letting time and things slip away from you daily, you need to know the difference between urgent and important work and ruthlessly prioritise. Watch the full video to feel inspired to take back control of your time.
