Preface
For the past over 25 years, I have been conducting programmes to help people to invest their time effectively. Earlier I used to call my programme "Time Management". After deeply thinking about this topic, I realized that time cannot be managed since we have no control on time. When we say we 'manage' a resource, we imply that we have a 'control' on that resource. For example, a Finance Manager has control on finance; a Materials Manager has control on materials; a Production Manager controls the production, etc. These people can alter the availability and the flow of the resource entrusted to them. For example, a Finance Manager can alter the availability of funds and control the cash flow. So there is a meaning in calling them as 'managers' of the resource entrusted to them.

But can time be controlled? Can we alter the availability and the quantity of time? Can we stop, reduce or speed up the flow of time? Irrespective of any social or status difference, all of us have the same amount of time. This quantity of time is identical for a baby in the cradle to the president of the largest country in the world. No one can control the flow or availability of time. Given this irrefutable fact, is it not abnormal to call it 'Time Management'?

However, we can intelligently use the available time by investing the same on value adding priorities. This process can be called 'enhancing the productivity of time'. After decades of teaching 'Time Management', I realized that it is not possible to teach or train anyone to manage any resource entrusted to them and that no one can be motivated or changed except with their complete cooperation and conviction.

With this in mind, I interviewed hundreds of successful people in various fields to understand how they are able to produce amazing results while others are struggling. I realized that successful people are unique in the way they use their time. I learnt hundreds of small ideas and tips that make them highly relaxed while at the same time turning out amazing results.

I started to share such ideas through my daily newsletters, which reaches thousands of readers across the world. This book "The Gift of Time" is the result of compiling such ideas. Already three editions of this book have come out and they have been received very well. This is the fourth edition of the book. I have tried to refine some of the ideas and present them in a more readable format. I thank Mr. Srinivasamurthy of Productivity and Quality Publishing for accepting to publish the fourth edition of this book.

I am very confident that the readers will benefit a lot from this book. I have made this book easily readable by ensuring that each chapter is not more than a page and each chapter is a stand-alone chapter without any link with previous or succeeding chapter. Any one can read any page to understand a simple concept.

Any concept is as useful as it is implemented. I strongly recommend the readers to not only read the book but also implement what they read in their daily life to derive maximum benefit of this book.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
