Guardian News on Skylight and Efficiency

In today’s world, expertise matters, but productivity matters more. In the end efficient people always prosper more than mere experts.

I strive to always make the best use of my time, especially when doing work-related stuff; ensuring I complete more projects, tasks and milestones faster. This does not only help me to achieve business growth, I also get more time to relax and enjoy life.

Many people do not measure their efficiency and therefore never know how much they could gain with increased productivity.
