Make the best use of
your best time
A few minutes of reflection will tell you that the quality of your attention or concentration varies at different times. If you are very tired or suffering from jet lag, for example, the quality of your decisions will tend to degenerate. On the other hand, you may notice that you habitually tend to be more mentally alert, or at least more creative, at certain times of the day.
You may remember in this context the Pareto Principle? It states
that `The Significant items of a given group form a relatively small
part of the Total'. For example, 20% of the buildings in London
use up to 80% of the total electricity supplied to that city.
So, whatever else you do, make sure that you manage well that
critical 20% of your time.
