Time Management and Productivity Hacks of Billionaires & Olympians [Podcast]
Updated on November 20th, 2015
“Life is about making an impact, not an income.” Kevin Kruse (Tweet this)
As I mentioned in my Olympic story, I wanted to share the 2 pieces of advice that I’ve put into practice from Kevin Kruse’s new book:
15 Secrets Successful People Know About Time Management: The Productivity Habits of 7 Billionaires, 13 Olympic Athletes, 29 Straight-A Students, and 239 Entrepreneurs (click the link to access Kevin’s free book offer – you only need to pay the shipping)
These are some of my favourite topics, so I was stoked to be included in the book.
My favourite, counterintuitive tip in the book came from the legendary former CEO of Intel, Andy Groves:
“There will always be more to do, always more that should be done and always more than can be done.”
In other words, work will never stop unless I make the decision to stop, to organise and to prioritise not just my work tasks, but my personal time too – like spending time with my wife Luce and daughter Bea, exercise, learning and downtime.
The other piece of advice that I’ve really put into practice since reading the book is this:
“Plan your work, then work your plan.”
This was the kick I needed to get organised and it’s already made this week one of my most productive in a long time!
So I asked Kevin to come on our podcast. It was awesome. We spent an hour diving deep into the key lessons he learned in his research including:
- His favourite productivity tip of them all and which ones he’s put into practice
- Why to do lists are ineffective and what the top performers do instead
- How to use death as a motivating and guiding force
- and of course a whole lot more.
If this tickles your fancy (like it does for me), then I’d love you to check out the podcast.
