How to Live on 24 Hours a Day (1910), written by Arnold Bennett, is part of a larger work entitled How to Live. In this volume, he offers practical advice on how one might live (as opposed to just existing) within the confines of 24 hours a day.


The book has the following chapters:
• The Daily Miracle
• The Desire to Exceed One's Programme
• Precautions Before Beginning
• The Cause of the Trouble
• Tennis and the Immortal Soul
• Remember Human Nature
• Controlling the Mind
• The Reflective Mood
• Interest in the Arts
• Nothing in Life is Humdrum
• Serious Reading
• Dangers to Avoid


“ Which of us lives on twenty-four hours a day? And when I say "lives," I do not mean exists, nor "muddles through." Which of us is free from that uneasy feeling that the "great spending departments" of his daily life are not managed as they ought to be? [...] Which of us is not saying to himself -- which of us has not been saying to himself all his life: "I shall alter that when I have a little more time"? We never shall have any more time. We have, and we have always had, all the time there is.     ”
