Podcast Interview: 2 Critical Time Management Tips To Keep You Out Of the Productivity Trap

We all have 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Why do some people manage to get more out of each minute than others?

I was recently interviewed on the Mads Singers Management podcast where we addressed that question.

Tune in for 30 minutes of advice and perspective about managing your time to achieve greater heights of success: Mads Singers podcast interview with John Nieuwenburg

Here’s what we covered:

  • How most small business owners approach their calendars from the wrong direction – and what they should do instead
  • The priority-setting questions you need to ask yourself each week and each day
  • What it really means to have priorities (and the hardest part about choosing them)
  • How a counter-intuitive response to client and customer demands is actually the best way to serve them
  • One simple planning routine that will take only a few minutes, but will also lower your stress and help you sleep better
  • The high cost of disruption and how to avoid it
  • How to balance being responsive and available with uninterrupted focus time
  • How changing your environment can help you easily build new habits without exerting a lot of willpower
  • How re-phrasing one simple question can help you massively increase your productivity
