    Podcast cover

    Laura Vanderkam is a nationally recognized writer who questions the status quo and helps her readers rediscover their true passions and beliefs in pursuit of more meaningful lives. Laura is the author of 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think, What Successful People Do Before Breakfast, What Successful People Do on the Weekend, and What People Do at Work, now all out in paperback compilation form.

    Covered in this episode:

    The first step to a makeover of your time is to keep track of how you are spending their time. - @LVanderkamClick To Tweet
    Mornings don’t occur in isolation. What we do in our mornings has an effect on the rest of the day. - @LVanderkamClick To Tweet
    You’re not going to get out of bed early for something that you don’t want to do. - @LVanderkamClick To Tweet
    Every time we think we’re multitasking, we’re just inefficiently mono-tasking. - @LVanderkamClick To Tweet
    When we’re doing work that we find important and meaningful our inboxes are naturally less attractive. - @LVanderkamClick To Tweet

    • Ask yourself: “What would make this a great work day? At the end of the day, what would you have liked to have changed in the world that would have made it worth showing up?”
    • Part of embracing the mindset of mono-tasking is being being careful about our time. It’s about understanding that you want to do things that matter. If you’re finding that you want to do others things than what you are doing,  it may be that what you are doing isn’t important to you.

    Make sure to tweet to Laura thanking her for what you learn from this episode.

    Podcast cover
    Read more

    Chris Bailey turned down lucrative job offers to pursue a lifelong dream—to spend a year performing a deep dive experiment into the pursuit of productivity, a subject he had been enamored with since he was a teenager. After obtaining his business degree, he created a blog to chronicle a year-long series of productivity experiments he conducted on himself, where he also continued his research and interviews with some of the world’s foremost experts, from Charles Duhigg to David Allen. This is his 2nd time on the show. Listen to his 1st episode here.

    The Productivity Project—and the lessons Chris learned—are the result of that year-long journey. Among the counterintuitive insights Chris Bailey will teach you:
    ·         slowing down to work more deliberately;
    ·         shrinking or eliminating the unimportant;
    ·         the rule of three;
    ·         striving for imperfection;
    ·         scheduling less time for important tasks;
    ·         the 20 second rule to distract yourself from the inevitable distractions;
    ·         and the concept of productive procrastination.
