There’s always talk of time management and how it can either facilitate revenue or drain you of your cash. It’s quite telling how wasting time can be just like throwing money away.

Repeating tasks can become an epidemic. Take a minute to think about the repetitive actions you take on any given day, then invest your effort into setting up hacks.
