Advice From A Billionaire

Ten minutes, once gone, are gone for good.

“You can do so much in 10 minutes’ time. Ten minutes, once gone, are gone for good. Divide your life into 10-minute units and sacrifice as few of them as possible in meaningless activity.”

-Ingvar Kamprad, Founder of the furniture brand IKEA


Mrs. Summers and I go one step further. We divide our life into five- and two-minute units.

We write our daily plans in huge ledgers and store them in IKEA chests and drawers.

Yes, we are the most boring couple on the planet but nothing ever goes wrong in our lives. IKEA is voluntarily recalling all chests and dressers that do not meet the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard (ASTM F2057-14).
