What Will You Do With Your '168 Hours'?

Do you always feel like you're in a time crunch? Laura Vanderkam, author of the new book "168 Hours," tells "Today" that that shouldn't be the case. If we reexamine our weekly allotment of 168 hours, she says, we'll find that we can dedicate more time to the things we want to do -- without having to make sacrifices.

For example, if you work 40 hours a week and sleep 56 hours a week, that gives you 62 hours to do everything else you want to do. Vanderkam says that when you look at time in weeklong rather than daylong increments, you will see that you can get a lot more done.

Sixty-two hours DOES sound like a lot of time ... but it still feels like we just don't ever have a free minute to ourselves after trying to tackle everything on our to-do list. How about you?
