Episode 320: How to Be a Long-Term Thinker in a Short-Term World

Do you ever look at your calendar and find yourself trying to fit the important things – let alone trips to the restroom – between meeting after meeting?

Everyone feels like they have too much on their plate and not enough time. That’s a problem because it leads to us spending our time instead of investing it. When that happens, you may find yourself looking up at the end of the day and questioning what you really got done.

The ONE Thing is about the surprisingly simple system that allows you to go from being busy to being productive. Dorie Clark, bestselling author, has just published a new book called The Long Game, and it is completely aligned with The ONE Thing. We’re going to walk you through what it means to play the long game, how you start creating more white space in your life, and the tools to help you start saying “no” to the things that don’t matter.
