Here's what top executive Nandan Kilekani (CEO of Infosys) told Fortune magazine about his attitude to time: "I have a saying--I am generous with my money and stingy with my time. I think time is the most important asset I have."
Isn't that the opposite of the attitude most of us have? All too often, we count our pennies but waste our minutes (or hours). What could you stop doing, or pay someone else to do, in order to have more time to write or pursue other creative activities? Students are a great source of cheap labor, for example. Also, how much would it cost to have your groceries delivered instead of going to the supermarket yoursef? I'm sure you can think of at least a few ways that for the expenditure of a little money you could gain a great deal of time. If you care to share any, please let me know!
