I think the fact that this list has 45 tips and it's for "extremely busy people" is kind of funny.  However, some of these tips are very good.

Ironically, most people who are actually extremely busy won't have time to read 45 tips. It would be awesome if this article was broken up into 3 parts (part 1, 2, and 3) with 15 tips each to make it more manageable. Just a suggestion for similar posts in the future. Great advice nonetheless. Thanks for sharing!
