This Twenty Six Hour Day Is Not Fiction! A Book Review
Copyright © by Mike Banks Valentine
Vince Panella might have been accused of writing a work of
fiction when titling his book "The 26 Hour Day, How to Gain
at Least 2 Hours a Day with Time Control". When he begins
his "Introduction to Time Control" chapter by stating on the
first page that he's . . . "come to the conclusion that --
time management does not work!" he immediately had me hooked.
I was charmed by the intensely human approach he takes from
the beginning. I've got to agree with him because my own
experience with time management is that it has a mechanistic,
almost robotic feel to it as presented by efficiency experts,
management consultants and minutia-charting time accountants.
Here is an approach that allows for "wasting time" and, even
more surprisingly, advocates getting sufficient sleep!
Although he suggests wasting incrementally less time than you
normally might he is clearly aware that as human beings, we are
driven less by deadlines than by emotional needs. At least once
in every chapter, reminding the reader that we are not perfect
and that it's OK that we're not precise as robots.
Panella blends the best of self improvement with his unique
approach to what he calls "Time Control", quoting personal
growth gurus Tony Robbins and Deepak Chopra beside references
to American Statistician, W. Edwards Deming, the man who was
". . . given credit for engineering Japan's modern industrial
success over the last 50 years." Deming guided Japanese
business through a formula of continual success improvement.
Constant incremental refining of success formulas is certainly
not limited to Deming. One of my strongest early inspirations
was reading "The Autobiography of Ben Franklin", in which the
continual improvement of Franklin's character throughout his
life is chronicled. Self improvement predated Franklin as well,
but Panella has combined the best of personal growth with time
control to offer what he has called "Success Centered Time
Although Panella does cover critical topics typical to time
management such as standard issue and admittedly important -
* Winning the War Against Procrastination
* The Power and Purpose of Goals
* Reducing Distractions
Those key points are presented in ways that kept my interest,
a surprising accomplishment in itself. But Panella has some
more compelling thoughts on some new approaches he has refined
over his nearly 20 years of presenting this material. Notable
are several concepts that resonate strongly with humanity.
* Gain 2 More Hours a Day Through the Power of Sleep
As one with sleep apnea disorder, I require more sleep than
most, but Panella boldly proclaims that, "Lack of adequate
sleep is the reason for 90 percent of the problems many of
us experience in gaining more control of our time."
He makes a strong case for a society that values sleep far
more than does ours. He goes so far as to cite a Gallup poll
that showed "Twenty-Five percent of adults believe they
cannot be successful AND get enough sleep!" He gives ample
reasons, from reduced productivity and performance right on
through loss of life caused by drowsiness and inattention.
* Bit by Bit, The Amazing Power of Five Minutes
This section emphasizes devoting a simple five minutes to
gradual progress toward seemingly huge goals on a daily
basis. Slow and steady wins the race might describe this
approach. He refers to this technique throughout the book
in varied ways to suggest that progress doesn't have to be
measured in tireless devoted hours of struggle, but can be
achieved much more easily "bit by bit."
* Moments, The Secret of Life
As a teenager, I wondered what my life might look like as
a two hour movie and imagined what little slices of time
might make it to the final cut (as I experienced one of my
first identity crises upon finishing high school). Panella
suggests that all of our lives are much like that and are
defined by individual moments of positive accomplishment
and that all lives are made up of a collection of small
moments we strongly identify with and remember powerfully.
The striking concept he delivers in the book is that we
not only have that inventory of past moments, but that we
should consider steadily depositing in a bank account of
moments from each day, and further, that we consider
investing to accumulate a wealth of moments. "Every day,
consciously look to create significant and simple moments"
to add to your "moments account".
* Maximizing Any Experience
"Before any event or experience . . . simply ask yourself
how prepared you are . . . for the event. You'll go through
details in your head and take a subjective measurement . . .
Then you'll ask yourself what you can do to make the event
a little better ahead of time. You'll repeat asking this
question . . . listing your answers . . . When complete,
you'll have a laundry list of actions to maximize the
event . . . You get to play armchair quarterback ahead of
time. You pull yourself back and look at the big picture
with a chance to make positive changes. Something we fail
to do more times than not."
"Maximizing almost seems too easy." Indeed it does, but
what a powerful tool if we only developed the habit.
The 26 Hour Day, I'm convinced, is a real possibility
in terms of maximising events, investing in our moments
with sincere gratitude and bit by bit, in multiple five
minute increments, we can gain additional value from our
Vince Panella has unwittingly given me the blueprint for
my New Years Resolutions for 2002. I'm committed to
investing significant time to his program of continual
success improvement over the coming year.

EATING FOR MORE ENERGY (Part 2)
1. Add more fruits and vegetables. (detailed in part 1)
2. Replace simple sugars with more complex carbohydrates.
The "sugar busters" and protein plan diets do make a very good point about processed sugar in
our society. Most of us eat way too much!
Again, I'm not telling you to eliminate sugar from your diet. I enjoy my wife's homemade
peanut butter cookies more than anyone does. What I'm suggesting you do to improve your
overall energy is to replace some of the processed sugars in your diet with more complex
What exactly does this mean? It means to cut down on some of the white breads, candy bars,
sugar cereals, sodas, chips and desserts a little and add a few more grains such as wheat and
oats. You don't have to go overboard. Just a few small changes here and there will add up to
a healthier lifestyle and increased energy.
Some of you might be asking, why should I cut down on sugars to increase my energy? Doesn't
sugar give you energy? Sugar does boost your energy for a short amount of time. But soon
after eating it, your blood chemical level becomes unbalanced and you actually get a lull in
your long-term energy. This is why you might have seen a child run around like crazy after
eating some candy only to become cranky and crash into a nap a short while afterwards.
Doesn't fruit have sugar and isn't it bad for me, some are asking? Yes, fruit has sugar. And
this is the argument that some of the "sugar busters" diets are trying to use in telling you
why not to eat fruits and some vegetables. But what they fail to point out is that the sugar
in fruit is chemically different than processed sugar. The natural sugar in fruits and some
vegetables is much more easily processed by your body to maintain a good chemical balance and
promote long-term energy.
Complex carbohydrates. Use them to replace a few of the processed sugar items you eat every
3. Reduce your fat intake.
Again, I'm asking you to make a few simple adjustments.
Fat is important to your diet, but most of us go way overboard in our consumption. As a matter
of fact, obesity is now considered a national epidemic according to many health studies.
Sugars are a big part of the problem, but it's not to be outdone by how much fat we eat.
I'm not telling you to go on a diet. I think most diets are more harmful than good for you in
the long run. When you focus on short-term gains to your system, you usually pay for it over
time. Lifestyle adjustments are the key! Making small adjustments to what you eat that add up
through time will give you the results you are shooting for in a diet and give you the best
odds for enjoying your benefits through time. The problem is that this approach will not drop
30 pounds in 30 days. Diets that claim they can then become very attractive - setting you up
for the rebound effect to gain even more weight in the future. Beware of miracle pills!
In focusing on your fat intake and how it relates to your energy level, I want you to think bit
by bit. If you cut out a bite here, avoid a candy bar there, and refuse to clean your plate
when you're not hungry any more, you'll begin to add more energy to your life. Enjoy the foods
you like, but do so just a little less and your positive efforts will stack up over time. Use
time to your advantage with this mentality!
One last suggestion on your fat intake is to spread it out over the day, giving your body an
increased chance to burn a lot of it. Make sure you get some fat in your breakfasts and
lunches, so that you are not craving as much fat at dinnertime. If you eat the majority of
your fat at dinner or in the evening, your decreased metabolism at night and while you sleep
will convert more of what you eat to fat stores in your body.
