SUMMARY:

Time is a limited commodity. What if you could develop a new relationship with time that would free you up to work on your most important projects or connect with the people and causes you care about most? In this practical and counter-intuitive interview with elite executive coach Jason Jaggard, best-selling author Rory Vaden describes the strategic mindset that will actually allow you to multiply your time. Walk away with surprising ways you can stop wasting time, gain productivity and increase your quality of life.

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • There is no such thing as time management. There is only self-management. You cannot manage time. 
  • 7 Habits of Highly Effective People was a life-changing productivity book, but it was written in 1989. The world has radically changed. 
  • You can’t solve today’s time management challenges using yesterday’s time management strategies. 
  • When planning their day, most people use the urgency calculation asking, “What’s the most important thing I can do today?” However, the highest performers use the significance calculation asking, “What can I do today to create more time tomorrow?” 
  • In the pre-Covid world, people were aware of digital tools but often didn’t take the time to learn them. In a postCovid world, we were forced to learn online business immediately. Covid accelerated trends that were already happening. 
  • Automation is to your time what compound interest is to your money.  
  • Automation allows leaders to scale trust. 
  • The next generation of cost savings will not be about saving money; it will be about saving time. Time is the one thing that turns money into more money.  
  • 30x rule: Training someone else will take 30 times longer than doing the job yourself. A task that takes you 5 minutes per day will cost you 1250 minutes in a year. If you take 150 of those minutes and train someone else, you’ve just gained 1100 minutes in your year for a 5-minute task. When you do the significance calculation, the time you spend on training and delegation makes sense.  
  • For every challenge there is an equal and opposite opportunity. The key is your mindset. 
  • The Focus Funnel: First question, “What I’m  doing now that creating time tomorrow?” 
  • Eliminate: “What can I stop doing?” Anything I say no to creates time in the future. 
  • Automate: What can I create a process for? What do we keep doing over and over again manually? 
  • Delegate: What are we doing over and over that we need to train a person to do? 
  • Procrastinate: What is trivial that I can delay on purpose? 
  • Concentrate: What can I do right now that create more time for me tomorrow? 
  • God’s first commandment in the Bible was to be fruitful and multiply. 

 

 

REFLECTION QUESTIONS:

2. What is the most significant barrier holding you back from using the significance calculation? What would it take for you to be able to move past that barrier?
