Bard Press, August 2008
To succeed in today’s ever-accelerating world, speed is the name of the game. Forget “slow
and steady wins the race.” The
key to getting ahead is not fighting or hiding from speed, but embracing
speed and using its power to your advantage. As Vince Poscente
demonstrates in this rewarding and, yes, fast-paced book, speed has a
unique ability to enrich your life. He empowers you to take control of
your time, your tasks, your priorities, and your talents, and
start making life everything you want it to be. Twenty new
tips—exclusive to this paperback edition—show you how to:
- recognize the difference between repetitive chores and passionate pursuits, and assign the appropriate amount of time and energy to each.
- mentally shatter the outdated idea that work, home, and leisure should be completely separate, and create a new, purpose-driven model of organizing your time.
- discover how to control interruptions, including how and when to accept them-- by learning when to multi-task and when to focus.
