    Every high achiever has probably been criticized as a 'control freak' at some point. However, given the numerous daily distractions entrepreneurs encounter, if you want to do 'deep work' with broad-ranging impact, you have to control your time to make each day a masterpiece. Check Out The Art of Service's Self Assessments.

    Honestly - at the extremely low outlay - the capacity to accelerate your journey, increase productivity and be a more informed buyer (when combined with what actual business problems you are trying to solve) I would be extremely hard pressed to not undertake it.
