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 http://www.roryvadenblog.com . This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

One of the BEST VIDEO for every one. Self Management will certainly lead to success.

The "important" vector includes the concept of "significance". This seems to be just tacking on a superfluous and redundant vector that needlessly complicates the Eisenhower Matrix, without actually fundamentally changing it. My opinion.

9:20 poop!
Allan Lasley (5 days ago)
Significance = "Will this free up time going forward?". Multiply time. Good marketing phrase. Useful as a memory trigger for significance question. Another tool hopefully used.

Multipliers realise that perfection is achieved not only when nothing more can be added But when nothing else can be taken away. Brilliant.

aftter long details argument in low and rich class people i listen in this point of view and long reply with in detail read peopl like and how mant dis like , this is all. Yestrue but it was realy time consuming task to understand cultural view but i 'd? yes i did at end at end i got that speech was good, emotional, bit religious .however it was not really work about people. Icould give respon is up words feel good and very few listener give neagtive option but my thought is that this is only moderan and rich people task not for my type old age and lower level people for,i do understand this is knowled of time and fact as he trying to expaln but not for those work who are looking for survivors in this world regardless what is they want .thanks

Companies expect people to work faster, have one person do the job of 2-3 people, for longer hours, higher stress, and less pay.
genius! and finally it gives time and space to allow things to unfold naturally! (I've never before heard the idea of management, which was including trust, passive observation and allowance!) and the story about you finding the father - is just wow!)))) and very touching. and for me (person, who deligates poorly) is an amazing example. Thank you!

I don't care about tomorrow. It's impossible to live in the tomorrow. It isn't here yet. Don't do significant things for tomorrow. It's impossible to do that, because again...it isn't here yet, technically it's never here. Only now exists. Why would you do significance for tomorrow, tomorrow isn't even promised. Do significance for right now, to apply now. I can touch now, I can't touch tomorrow. I want wisdom now, to apply! I want love now to apply! I want money now to apply! Etc. Have a lovely day. God bless

When A makes it easier and therefore faster to do B then you have more time. Hence Prioritizing can create more time.

wkjeom (3 months ago)
I am sick. I have Lyme disease. Therefore my mind and body always tells me, "Don't dare do today, what you can put off until tomorrow." So now I am working very hard to tell myself that if I do that, tomorrow will never come because I will be dead. So I work to invest for passive income so I can afford treatment. I have fought hard to regain my health. The fight is not over yet, as I am not in my grave yet. I still pray and work for better days, for better health to be able to enjoy days that God may permit me to add.

An absolute fraud rephrasing and presenting Covey's ideas (time mgmt quadrants, big rocks prioritization) as his own. However, not before he completely rejects Covey. Outrageous!

It depends on why you are doing it. If you are a student and you put off your homework until tomorrow that's due the next afternoon, that would be bad because in the long-run, you'll either miss the deadline and bring down your grades (which are important to you I'd assume if you're in school) or you'll try to get it done during your other classes and miss out on important information there which will bring down your grades or make your life harder because you'll have to play more catch-up to learn that information. Let's say you're a parent now. You have a pile of clean laundry you finished when you got home from work and you need to put it all up, but your 1 year old daughter is going to bed in a couple hours and you've been at work all day without seeing her. In this case, will that laundry being out really affect you if it stays until the next afternoon while you spend quality time with your child that you can't ever get back or put off in that same sense? Or even better, can you find spare time later, after she gets to bed, that you can do it instead? Or best of all: can you add it into your schedule with another more enjoyable thing so you could multitask and fold clothes while talking to your spouse or watching a movie together. In this way, you can procrastinate ON PURPOSE with a specific reason why and then still get it done later without sacrificing a personal top-priority thing. :)

Actually, the only reason I can't delegate things is because people don't work for free and I can't pay them.

"You multiply your time by giving yourself the emotional permission to spend time on things today that will give you more time tomorrow". He stated before that you can not make more time in the day. So when he says it will give you more time tomorrow what is he referring to? Free time? Work Time? More time to decide what to do with the time? Can anyone explain?
he looks like Zoro

“...that create more time tomorrow”, but you can’t create more time tomorrow? Tomorrow just has 24h, like you said. And anyway...there is only now.

Sometimes, purposely procrastinating something because you don't feel like doing it, and prioritizing some recharge time for yourself first, is the right thing to do. Once you have regained rest and calm, you *will* feel like tackling the thing, and will be more effective at doing it when you're not too burnt out to do it properly.
