							It's an unquestioned truth of modern life: we are starved for time. With the  rise of two-income families, extreme jobs, and 24/7 connectivity, life is so  frenzied we can barely find time to breathe. We tell ourselves we'd like to  read more, get to the gym regularly, try new hobbies, and accomplish all kinds  of goals. But then we give up because there just aren't enough hours to do it  all. Or else, if we don't make excuses, we make sacrifices. To get ahead at  work we spend less time with our spouses. To carve out more family time, we put  off getting in shape. There has to be a better way-and Laura Vanderkam has  found one.
