Make Your Time Right: Book Review
Make Your Time Right by Kamaal J. Gupta is an inspiring book on different aspects of life when combined, enabling us to live better.
The facets of life he focuses on are:
- Time Management
- Financial Independence
Make Your Time Right consists of suggestions made by the author from his years of experience. The book is not an in-depth module but provides a general problem and solution approach to such necessary aspects of life. It is a short-read book consisting around 146 pages which can be even read under 1 hour. If you want to start developing reading habit, I highly recommend you read this book.
If you are new to the self-help books, this book works fine.

Do not expect some life-altering advice that will change your life the next day. In many cases, real-life-altering suggestions are fundamental and require consistency to get to the level of greatness. But people are so addicted to finding quick fixes that they never focus on such things.
Different ideas presented in this book will at least make your brain wonder. You will find some concepts beneficial for you, especially the sections based on Priority and Routine. It serves the purpose of ticking your brain so that you pick any topic and scour the internet to learn more.
After reading many self-help books, I feel this book is well-suited for the new entrants. If you frequently read self-help books focussing on such kinds of ideas and that are too in-depth, I think this book will not prove very beneficial to you.
You will benefit more if you pick books like Atomic Habits or The Art of Saying No.

Our mental strength is the biggest source of motivation. If trained properly it can help you achieve great things. If left without practice, you are left with a lot of unproductive habits. Try to develop clarity on your tasks which can help you develop better focus on what you want to do.
I am attaching an excerpt from the book which explains this situation to a large extent:
Focus is the central key to all locks of life. If one has focus, any and everything is possible with consistent effort and persistence.

Section V: Priority
The priority setting has a high reciprocity level to the habits, routines, and time management skills one has. We need to understand that all have the same twenty-four hours in a day, and what we accomplish in those hours depends on the priorities set.
