Beating the Clock

More things to do than can be done in the time available? Then there are three alternatives: get an extension of time; relinquish some of the projects—perhaps let someone else do them if they're really necessary; or beat the clock by developing more of the infinite capacity that God bestows on His idea, man, and accomplish what has to be done with greater ease and speed.

The first of these alternatives, stretching allotted time, is not usually more than a temporary relief measure. One cannot have more time—more than twenty-four hours in a day and seven days in a week. So an extension of time to do one thing will necessarily mean eating into the time allotted for something else, or leaving one with no time to enjoy normal rest and recreation.
