Rory Vaden is the best selling author of Take the Stairs, and Procrastinate on Purpose. His expertise on improving self-discipline, overcoming procrastination, and enhancing productivity make him the perfect guest for this week’s show. Today, Bill and Rory discuss some of the best ways you can multiply your time and get more things done the smart way!
Although Rory does sales consulting for his business, the number one challenge his clients face is managing their time effectively. This propelled Rory into researching how the most successful people think about time. He found that there were two major things that stuck out with how ultra-high achievers think about time vs. everyone else.
Rory and his team do extensive polling and national studies for his business, but he experienced a surprisingly big breakthrough from a lesson he learned from a 3-year-old girl. That little girl showed him unintentionally that time management isn’t just logical, it’s emotional, too.
If you really look at it, there is no such thing as time management. Time carries on whether you want it to or not. When we talk about time management what we’re really talking about is self-management. Self-management includes managing our emotions, our behaviors, and that’s what this is all about. We have to first grasp that self-management is an emotional issue before we can begin to multiply our time.
