Why you need to meet Jake.
As the creator of Google’s design sprint, Jake is no stranger to ambition and responsibility or the difficulty of juggling life with ever-increasing demands on time. His own experience will resonate with you as a leader, and his insight will present a real opportunity to re-assess, and refocus on what is really important. And then, he’ll talk about how you can take back control.
We know you’ll have questions, so we’ll send you a copy of Make Time and you can pitch them at Jake.
- Why being more productive will never stop you from being busy
- How modern distractions put us on the back foot
- Why we’re so prone to distractions in the first place
- What we can learn from Odysseus about living well
- Why willpower isn’t enough; how to create focus.
- Why reflection is key to making the most of your time.
In your session, after meeting Jake, you’ll meet my other guest leaders to share thoughts, discuss take-aways, and turn insights into value.
You will take away new connections, novel insight, and be inspired to implement new strategies to focus on what matters in your business and personally.
What MAKE TIME is all about
Make Time: How to Focus on What Matters Every Day is an insightful look at why it often feels that there are just not enough hours in the day, and the reasons we are so easily distracted. If nailing the art of productivity and willpower isn’t enough to make us feel good, then what is?
Make Time is a neat framework to create the time to focus on what really matters. It’s not a one-size-fits-all plan. This method isn’t focussed on what you get done, it focuses on what you can achieve that will make you feel good. This isn’t targeting urgent tasks or huge goals, but the achievable steps between. Long-term goals and back burner projects become attainable when you feel great about the smaller steps along the way. It’s not hard, it’s not complicated, it’s simple and brilliant.
