How can we take this intellectual idea and apply it? How can we increase effectiveness and open up more calendar freedom?

Step1: Audit first.

“What gets measured, gets managed.”

Step 2: Subtract the inessentials.

In other words: what would you eliminate if you had to?

Step 3: Schedule what matters.

Step 4: Focus on the qualitative.

Ignorance not bliss; it’s expensive.

Step 5: Balance consumption and creation.

Step 6: Don’t negotiate (with yourself).

Bonus: Shut off (sometimes).
