Each of us has 24 hours a day, right? With different tasks and deadlines to meet, yes.
Legally stealing into time requires delegation and division of labour.

People around you possess talents and skills you can and should adequately tap into as resource. Understanding the dynamics of people around you is a strong suite to possess.

Truth is, some environments are more productive than the other at different times. Based on variables such as infrastructure, nearness to market, population and size, environments differ.
