The Secret To Never Being Too Busy Again

What’s the biggest complaint in the workplace? I’m too busy. We’re too busy. There’s not enough time. And there’s too much to do. But regardless of the stress and demands put on us at work, there are three simple rules you can implement tomorrow to create space in your days. In this fast-paced and resource rich talk, Neil uses his trademark Sharpie scribbles to share 1) How to make every decision at twice the speed, 2) The counterintuitive way to have more time, and 3) How to add an hour to your day with only one small change.
