IN THIS SUMMARY
Every executive has wished for more hours in a day in order to meet all of his or her business goals. John K. Clemens and Scott Dalrymple suggest that more hours are not necessarily the best answer. They contend that the key to success is looking at time in a whole new way. The authors dismiss time management as inadequate, as they believe being a time master is less about managing the clock or the calendar. They believe that mastery means having an intuitive sense of time and viewing time as malleable rather than constant.
In Time Mastery, the authors provide dozens of examples of leaders whose skill in temporal intelligence have led to significant increases in productivity at companies such as Intel, Dell, 3M, and Microsoft. These leaders understand that the mentality of allowing artificially prioritized items to take precedence over a true priority will not advance the goals of an organization.
