If there’s one complaint I hear over and over again, it’s about how we all have so much to do, and so little time to do it. As introverts, our energy is our most precious asset. We have to be intentional about how we spend it and when it’s best to save it. Knowing how to do that is not always easy when we’re being pulled in a million different directions.
So why is it that some people seem to get so much done while others get bogged down, overwhelmed, and further behind with each passing day? It is possible to focus your energy in such a way that you are more productive without feeling burned out. Bruce Lee offers us one approach; he says, “Absorb what is useful, reject what is useless, add what is specifically your own.”
Today’s podcast guest, Pam Weatherford of D3 Seminars, offers another approach that’s similar to that advice, but uniquely hers. She calls it “cutting the CRAP,” and her intention is to give you tools that allow you to get more done in less time.
- Why less is more when it comes to working towards your goals
- How the 80/20 Rule applies to time and energy management
- The art of saying “no” gracefully (and why this is super important to introverts)
- What Pam has identified as the Habits of Highly Efficient & Productive People
