How to Be More Efficient and Less Stressed

After a brush with a serious illness drove Ari Meisel to de-stress his life, the author of Less Doing, More Living: Make Everything in Life Easier became an expert on efficiency. In this video, Meisel shares his three-part process to streamline any task, no matter how small.  

“The truth is, whether you’re in a 9-5 job or you’re an entrepreneur, there are hundreds of things in your day and your week that take a minute or even 10 seconds of your time, but they add up,” he says.

You Don’t Need More Time, You Need More Energy

Are you feeling pressed for time? Take a 20-minute break and watch this TEDx Talk from Tony Schwartz, CEO of The Energy Project. According to Schwartz, refocusing and renewing your energy will help you cope with this “world of infinite demand.”

“We need to learn to manage our energy rather than our time,” he says. “It used to be—until recently, even—that if you needed to get more done, what did you do? You invested more hours. Well that’s fine, except time has a problem, doesn’t it? It’s finite.”

How Ted Turner Learned about Integrity

Honor and integrity are of the utmost importance in business, according to media mogul Ted Turner. In this video, Turner tells the story of how his father instilled those values in him from a very young age.

“My father was a great, great believer in personal integrity; honor,” Turner says. “Here I am, 72 years old, and I haven’t been indicted or accused of anything.”

Why Being Busy Isn't Impressive

In this spirited TEDx Youth Talk, reformed overachiever Carlin Daharsh explains why being busy is not the same thing as being productive and why it isn’t impressive.

“I had people coming at me from every direction [during high school], telling me what I needed to do, needed to learn, needed to know, needed to try, needed to be good at in order to be successful,” she says. “Now, I know that they only wanted what was best for me, but I became a victim of society’s theory implying the busier you are, the more impressive you seem.”

What unimportant tasks are you willing to give up?

Why You Need to Follow Your Own Path

Though he’s only 23 years old, Brian Wong is already a successful venture capitalist and founder of the mobile advertising company Kiip. In this chat with Darren Hardy, Wong talks about what it feels like to be looked at as an example of success and cautions us all to take his advice “with a grain of salt.”

“I did the things I did in my own economic environment, social environment, etc. etc. People always have their own unique environments that they thrive in, so try to take the principles that might be driving my decisions versus what I did,” Wong explains. “There is no playbook; there is no step-by-step.”
