Allow me to introduce you to my friend Dave Crenshaw. Dave is a master at teaching people how to become more productive. In this month’s Heart to Heart, I spoke with him about how the decisions we make around multitasking and productivity affect our relationships.
In this interview, you’ll learn:
- How we, as a culture, are multitasking on our partners, colleagues and children
- The three consequences of multitasking
- Why working “as long as it takes” is actually sloppy productivity
- How to create a buffer between your work and your personal life
- How one client transformed his life from chaotic and distracted to calm and connected
