Time is the most important thing nowadays, but it’s possible to be successful at work without spending so much time (or all your time) on it? Can we say ‘no’ to the things at work?

Do you know the MIT strategie? It’s an online productivity community of tackling your most important thing (MIT) first thing in the morning.
