    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.

    Seems quite handy - going to start using it next month as we're investing quite a lot in it. This will define for us what to do in this space and solve a real problem (rather than chasing shiny objects).
