Do you often head home wondering

If that sounds like you, you’re not alone.

If that sounds like you,
you’re not alone.

In fact, most ambitious people have similar experiences, and it’s not surprising. Technology has made work easier in some ways, and infinitely harder in others.

If you’re in a demanding role, chances are you’re surrounded by distractions and opportunities, and inundated with invitations and requests - and all of that, no matter how tempting - is quietly sabotaging your ability to get things done.

It’s stifling your productivity, it’s preventing you from getting ahead, and it’s causing you to go home on far too many nights feeling frustrated.

Simply put, you’re spinning your wheels - and that has a price.

wheels - and that has a price.

I don’t have to tell you about it, because you already know.

You know that constantly running around feeling restless is no way to live.

You know that nagging feeling of stress is quietly damaging your health.

And deep down, you know that you have the potential to go further and achieve more.

And yet, here you are.

Working harder is not the answer.

Working harder is
not the answer.

So what do most of us do when we’re feeling behind?

Simple: we work more hours.

But as we all know far too well, that’s no solution at all.

Because while many of us can work 12 hour days occasionally, after a day or two, our effort falters. Our energy wanes, our motivation dips, and our productivity tanks. We burn ourselves out.

So what should we do instead?

The Secret to Getting More Done

(without trying harder)

There’s a better way.

Over the past decade, psychologists like me have uncovered a variety of evidence-based techniques for boosting productivity, leveraging fresh insights into the way the mind and body operate.

We now have decades of research showing that we can lift our energy, improve our focus, and get more done when we apply the latest science to our schedules.

But how?

Calibrate your tasks to your energy level.

Groundbreaking new studies now reveal that our cognitive functioning fluctuates throughout the day. Simply put: the person you are first thing in the morning is not the same person you are later in the afternoon. That insight has profound implications, and applying it correctly to the way you schedule your day can transform your experience and make you dramatically more effective.

Have a system for swatting away distractions.

You don’t have to be an expert to know that one of the biggest barriers to our performance is distraction. But what most people don’t realize is that not all distractions are created equal. There are external distractions, like email and phone calls, but then there are the distractions we create ourselves. The kind that emerge from inside of us - like when you suddenly remember you need to buy toothpaste, or when you want to look something up. To maintain your focus, you need more than self-control. You need a proven, science-backed system for staying on track.

3

Know how to extricate yourself from
commitments that are not priorities.

The more successful you get, the more people want to take you to coffee, invite you to meetings, and ask you to speak. That’s why staying on track requires that you become an expert at saying no to activities that are not aligned with your long-term goals. Moreover, you need to do so in a way that leads people to respect you more - not less - even when you’re letting them down.

So how do you master these skills and implement
them into the way you work?

What people are saying

quotation
  • This program helped me realize how much inefficiency I had in my schedule, and how I can better protect my "best" hours. It taught me how to say No in a better way and more often. It's so helpful to realize how to use the less efficient hours and how to spend more time doing "important" things rather than the easy ones.

    --Tom, a financial executive at a Fortune 100 company

  • It changed my life. Thanks to the lessons, I don't put any work of low priorities during my high potential hours anymore.

    --Michelle C., a Ph.D. student getting her doctorate in biology

  • Before the program, I would do things in a random manner. Now, I organize around energy levels. For example, I keep a list of 'brain dead' tasks to do when I'm low on energy or feel a need to 'take 5' from a creative task. This list is my go-to instead of 'going surfing'.

    --Mark A., the founder of a Wealth Management Firm
