Description

Superstar performers like Hugh Jackman and Carl Lewis know how to leave something in the tank for the moments they will need the extra boost most. This is a little discussed secret that can be applied to how we manage our time and schedules. It's called the 15% buffer or adaptive capacity that will not only help reclaim some of your time back but also help you achieve more. This is part two of a two-part episode.

Donna McGeorge makes work work. She is a productivity coach, best-selling author, trainer, and facilitator. Her focus is on helping individuals, managers, and teams work smarter, build collaborative relationships, and make efficient use of time. She has written 10 productivity books, with The 1 Day Refund  published this month.

Quotes from this episode:


"I tell everyone to start at the end of the day.  So if you're swamped, you drowning... You're at risk of failing at the important things....  I'm going to say protect the last hour of your day or whatever is possible in your busy world."

"Does it start with I'll trust you first and give you a crack? Or do you have to prove (yourself), and then I'll trust you? I think it's the former".

"If we're operating at 100% we've got no room to move... We should be operating at that 85% more consistently to feel better, do better and actually achieve more."
