How To Live On Twenty-Four Hours A Day

In the average case I should say: Confine your formal program to six days a week. If you find yourself wishing to extend it, extend it; but count the time extra as a windfall, not as regular income, so that you can return to a six-day program without the sensation of being poorer, of being a backslider.

LET us now see where we stand. So far we have marked for saving out of the waste of days half an hour at least on six mornings a week, and one hour and a half on three evenings a week. Total, seven hours and a half a week.
" What?" you cry. "You pretend to show us how to live, and you deal only with seven hours and a half out of 168! Are you going to perform a miracle with your seven hours and a half?" Well, not to mince the matter, I am - if you will let me. My contention is that the full use of those hours will quicken the whole life of the week, add zest to it, and increase the interest which you feel in even the most banal occupations.
It is not really a trifling effort to "clear" even seven hours and a half from the jungle. One may have spent one's time badly, but one did spend it. To do something else means a change of habits. And habits are the very dickens to change! Some sacrifice, and an immense deal of volition, will be necessary. Hence I reiterate: Start quietly, unostentatiously.
Before coming to the method of using the indicated hours, I have one final suggestion to make. That is to allow much more than an hour and a half in which to do the work of an hour and a half. Remember the chance of accidents. Remember human nature. And give yourself, say, from 9 to i 1: 30 for your task of go minutes.

PEOPLE SAY: "One can't help one's thoughts." But one can. The control of the thinking machine is perfectly possible. And since nothing whatever happens to us outside our own brain, the supreme importance of being able to control what goes on in that mysterious brain is obvious. For without the power to concentrate-to dictate
