Investing and spending time is analogous to investing and spending money. This chapter discusses rules, which help achieve deftness in being Time Smart. The first rule highlights that one should invest intelligently and sufficiently at the onset, with the objective of gaining a huge return on investment (ROI) at the end. Rule two focuses on the plan to make one deliverable useful for multiple tasks. Rule three insists on opting for the task with better ROI. Making nonproductive time productive is the fourth rule, followed by the fifth rule that explains the need to use spare time to engage activities that could enhance one's career. The last rule talks about keeping the mind sharp by taking catnaps.
