If you feel like you don’t have time to do things you enjoy, you don’t have time to exercise, or you don’t get enough sleep, you will find when you read this book that you’ve been telling yourself a big fat lie. You have the time. You are getting enough sleep. You are just caught up in the narrative that society has accepted as truth.

But, I also got a lot of great ideas about how to take better advantage of the time I do have for pursuing things outside of work (and sleep).
