I really enjoyed this guest expert interview with John Assaraf on the Global Stress Summit because it is so practical: Reducing Stress and Optimizing Performance. He developed some ideas based on following what really highly successful people do within time.
He shares this about time management:
And the first thing that I learned in research and study is, number one, there’s no such thing as time management. And so, that’s the first fallacy.
And what I discovered was that highly successful people really know how to organize and prioritize what they are committed to accomplishing in a day.
And this gem about prioritization:
When you shift your thinking to understanding that you cannot manage time, all you can get really, really good at is prioritizing what you do in time and when.
John shares that all your time management should evolve around your highest values and life’s priorities and then
how do you orchestrate your decisions into that framework so that you’re taking care of at least two or three of your highest values before 9 o’clock every morning. I get to do three of those before 9 o’clock every day, which means the rest of the day I can do all the other stuff.
He does work mostly with entrepreneurs and his talk is aimed at those with their own businesses and flexibility but I can see how some of it could be tweaked and also applied to anyone.
If time management is a nightmare for you and you don’t feel you have enough hours in the day then this interview is well worth tuning in to! You may just find that by applying some of the concepts that you are able to reduce your stress levels and anxiety!
If you’d like to hear more from John Assaraf and the other fascinating speakers tune in to the Global Stress Summit, which is online from April 24 – May1, 2017
John’s inteview interview airs on day 4.
Your host, Dr. Heidi Hanna, began her expedition into the world of stress science at the early age of 12 when she began to suffer from debilitating anxiety, depression, and panic attacks. With no medical explanation, she was forced to dive into mind-body research to try to put the puzzle pieces together.
In this Global Stress Summit, Dr. Hanna interviews the very pioneering researchers and thought leaders who helped her learn how to utilize stress as a stimulus for growth rather than a trigger for burnout and breakdown, as she passionately encourages us to do the same. Here is the registration link.
