Creating Order Out of Chaos—Staying Afloat in a World of Too Much to Do

The world is not coming to us in a neat little package–it comes from multiple levels from myriads of sources, with no rhyme nor reason as to how it appears to us. And it continues to accelerate, in ever greater volume. The solution is not in having more time, but having ...

The world is not coming to us in a neat little package–it comes from multiple levels from myriads of sources, with no rhyme nor reason as to how it appears to us. And it continues to accelerate, in ever greater volume. The solution is not in having more time, but having more space–more room to think creatively and strategically, and to be more present and appropriately engaged with what’s most meaningful to us. We need to be clear-headed in order to navigate and negotiate the changes and surprises that are coming toward us with increasing frequency.

There is a way to manage this, to surf on top of it, and to feel invigorated with the opportunities instead of overwhelmed with the challenges. There is a set of behaviors that allow us to stay clear and focused, amidst it all. But we are not born doing these practices, and they don’t show up by themselves. They are not difficult to implement, but they do require directing and training some “cognitive muscles”–ways to think about our “stuff”–and utilizing an effective and trusted personal system for staying in control.

David will explain the five critical steps for getting anything more in control and focused, with specific best practices and tools for each phase. He will share the best practices that he has tested and implemented in thousands of hours spent desk-side with some of the brightest and busiest people in the world. And, he will pass on many techniques that anyone can implement immediately, to gain greater stability, clarity, and, (yes!) time to engage with what really matters.
