Why Successful People Spend 10 Hours A Week On “Compound Time”

Why Successful People Spend 10 Hours A Week On “Compound Time” | CommonSenseBusiness | Scoop.it

"Despite having way more responsibility than anyone else, top performers in the business world often find time to step away from their urgent work, slow down, and invest in activities that have a long-term payoff in greater knowledge, creativity, and energy. As a result, they may achieve less in a day at first, but drastically more over the course of their lives.

I call this compound time because, like compound interest, a small investment now yields surprisingly large returns over time."
