Guest post: 1 Percent Time – Improve yourself and your blog every day

The quest for self-improvement is a critical part of life for some, while for others it’s merely an afterthought. For those of us that seek to improve ourselves and our work, there are a million books, seminars and techniques out there all purporting to hold the key to unlocking our potential. While some of them genuinely offer sage advice and sensible guidance, others are awash with circular logic, tautologies and truisms that don’t actually help us to reach our goals. Today I’d like to expound upon a simple, practical technique that can be acted upon every day with a manageable amount of effort, and promises to drastically improve many facets of your life: This is 1 Percent Time…
