Each of us should make sure his time is being used in the most efficient manner. I don’t see how one can succeed in anything without an individual work plan. It is essential to design such a plan for each upcoming week, in order to know what to do.
I need to establish it for myself and not back out from what I have planned. Besides, it has to be tied to all other work plans so that I stay connected with them like a cogwheel in the entire system.
Therefore, each hour and every minute have to be written out precisely. And inasmuch as a person worries about the external environment, to make sure that his work brings fruit to the others, he succeeds in the internal work as well.
