Kevin Kruse investigated the secrets successful people know about how to be more productive in order to understand what strategies they use to get the most out of life, both professional and personal. He uncovered recurring time-management techniques, putting them all together in his book, 15 Secrets Successful People Know About Time Management, and sharing them with the world so that anybody can learn them and put them into practice by choosing those most relevant to them and which best fit best with their personal style. The common thread running through all of these strategies is the idea of not thinking in terms of time, but rather in terms of value and priorities.
