- outstanding skills in your favorite activity (cost 600 000 minutes, according to Anders Erickson);
- your dream that come true (for example, publishing your own book, estimated cost 60,000 minutes);

Spending 120 minutes a day for honing your skills in your favorite activity, you can become proficient in it in 14 years. Spending 30 minutes a day on making your dream come true, you can publish a book in 5.5 years. Spending 30 minutes a day learning a new language, you can pretend to be a foreigner in 2.5 years.
And then there are still 150 minutes to spend time on communication with your loved ones, which is an investment when warm trusting relationships with children, love and care are acquired.
It seems there is enough time to be successful and live happily. But if you are over 25 and you do not have such large acquisitions, check what your time is spending on
Mind what your every 10 minutes are spent on. Most likely, you will be taken aback by how huge chasms grow from every little thing for 10 minutes, which absorb your dreams. Minor wasting of time is the main killer of efficiency. When you see that you are spending more time than you can afford, and what it is spent on, plan your time budget — create separate projects for each major investment and invest time in them daily.
To find out what exactly you spend your valuable time on, you can write down every step you take, set alarms every 30 minutes or just use our task tracker — that way you’ll know how many hours and minutes you spend on each task on your list, so you can optimize your time.Time Tracker for Tasks: Why You Need It and How It Helps Improve Efficiency
