Everything you know about time-management is wrong. In this challenging and counter-intuitive video, Self-Discipline Strategist and New York Times bestselling author of Rory Vaden, shows you why you can't solve today's time-management challenges with yesterday's time-management strategies. More importantly he explains why procrastinating on purpose is the key to being able to Multiply your time.
Self-Discipline Strategist Rory Vaden’s book Take the Stairs is a #1 Wall St Journal and #2 New York Times bestseller. Rory is also Co-Founder of Southwestern Consulting™, an 8-figure global consulting practice. His new book Procrastinate On Purpose: 5 Permissions to Multiply Your Time came out in January of 2015 and was an instant National Bestseller. Free insights at .
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Another way to put it but it's kind of a joke, when you say "yes" to something you say "no" to saying "no". It reminds me of "never say never"

Just be aware that if you don't have a dishwasher nor a family to delegate the task to, you may want to consider that 'now is the time' comes way before... ya know... things start growing on it... And what i noticed myself (during corona home time) is that some 'chores' become compounded stress that results in procrastination. See, you know you need to do them, but you likely don't feel like doing them, and without automation or delegation options, these small tasks (like cleaning, laundry or dishes, etc) makes your 'to-do-list' longer then it needs to be, this obviously leads to stress, and stress is a common 'stressor' for procrastination. So, there are really un-imporant things, that you can't automate or delegate and are seemingly un-significant, but are inflating your to-do list. You should probably do these things before anything else, because once out of the way, you will have created more time in the future simply because you will feel you have more time because your to-do-list is shorter now ! Also, look at places where you can combine activities, commutes are great opportunities to plan certain activities given you accept from for being that activity. Obviously pod-casts, or language studies are great during commute, but if you take the public transport you can view it as 'relax time' or 'work time', i mean, it's basically delegating the transport to the driven medium (it's why CEO's tend to have a driver). And once you start to realize that public transport isn't point to point transport, well then station to end-point becomes a opportunity to exercise. Aka. compound your activities by making them concurrent and accept and realize the significance of what you do for your personal goals (this is what 'multi-tasking' really is (so find those moments during your day, on which you can achieve multiple things (f/e. doing the dishes and watching/listening the news will satisfy you being able to stay on top of what happened that day (for small talk, or opportunities of tomorrow) AND do the dishes! Vacuuming can be a great time to fulfil the urge to sing f/e, likely with great benefits to all concerned ;) ... etc. and so on.

How is significance different than importance?
Jason Crawford
Jason Crawford Il y a 13 jours
@ayanda gwala Thanks. So the way he sees it... Importance is the maximum importance the action ever achieves. Urgency is how soon that max value occurs. And Significance is the area under the curve over eternity.
ayanda gwala
ayanda gwala Il y a 13 jours
Importance in the context of the video, is something you see as important for the moment where as significance is something that is not only important for the moment, but for the future as well. So he's saying, it's best you put more time on significant things rather than important things, as the former will allow you to spend more time on the important things in the future anyways.

My paradigm with work has always been: how can I make myself obsolete? That might sound scary, because you would loose your job but, in doing so, you've learned a skill set that is much more valuable than the set that you need for your current job. Also, you won't replace yourself in one go. Rather, you replace your old responsibilities with new ones over time.
Diedert Spijkerboer
Diedert Spijkerboer Il y a 20 jours
I think that I get the how long does it matter. For example, going to the loo doesn't matter for very long, because, if you wait for a few hours more, the problem basically solves itself. The obvious time-saving solution is using diapers, which you only need to replace twice a day.

Since "Prioritizing" that he suggested to avoid as one of the means to multiply time is mostly based on the cause of significance, there is I think, no point in saying "significance calculation" is the only successful way to multiply the time.

14:30 I have spoken with many managers about this matter, cause I work in HR, and I would say most of them agree with that all the time, they really believe that no one can do the job as good as they can. Well, first, this is also the way that the most inefficient people think, especially if you lead a team, but second and most important, it is a cognitive bias that comes from a completely irrational idea posibly related to some some degree of personality dissorder. People who consistently think that they can do everything better than others and they're always excellent, are more likely to have a distorted self image, where also other people seems to be less capable than they really are. This has many problematic consequences, but paticularly two we should pay attention to: first, they have problems to see their own mistakes and flaws, and they tend to deny them, which immediately means a higer risk of commit them and a lower willingness to correct them. And second, they are very bad leaders. If you think you're the only one who can do the things right you don't delegate, you don't trust, probably you don't respect or value expertise and skills of your team, you are not sensitive enough to recognize their achievements because you live in that imaginary cloud of perfection where nobody, especially you, lives in. I have seen this so many times, that perfection fantasy where bad leaders live, so the message is be careful with that, if you are close to people like that, be careful, and if you are one of those who think they're always better than everyone, be aware, you're not, you're probably under a bias misjudging yourself, your environment and other people.

There are a lot of helpful points here but there’s certain phrases that really make it hard for me to resonate with this speech as a whole. For example, “The way wealthy people think about money is...” I would like to know the criteria for being wealthy and how anyone could in good conscience claim to know how all of those people think about any particular topic.

Sanjika Perera - basically they are losers and are addicted to social media. Everytime they get a "like" or notification about their post it releases dopamine in the brain and they want more. They crave the attention like a drug addict craves their substance. You see it everywhere in the FRshow comments, people trying to out do each other. It's sad and pathetic.

Summary: How we choose to spend our time is as much logical as emotional One dimensional thinking solution: Efficiency - do your to-do list faster Two dimensional thinking solution: Prioritization - (on the axes of importance and urgency) Three dimensional: “Significance” - Urgency how soon does it matter; importance - how much does it matter; significance - how long does it matter You multiply your time by giving yourself the emotional permission to spend time on things today that will give you more time tomorrow The significance calculation changes everything Focus Funnel: Eliminate, automate, delegate, - me (now=concentrate/ later=procrastinate on purpose)
