Sometimes, in our drive to improve the way we work and how we do business, we start focusing too much on trying to set up our calendars, our to-do lists, and our productivity systems that we end up getting less and less time to do any actual work! What can you do to cut the crud out of the way you work and focus on the things that can get you to where you want to be in business and in life?

In this episode, we’re going to talk to Jay Papasan, a New York Times best-selling author and a hugely successful businessman about setting priorities, being clear about what you really want to achieve, and creating systems that enable you to achieve success you never would have thought was possible—both in business and in your personal life.

In this episode, you’ll learn all about:

  • How to use your time effectively from some of the most productive and successful businessmen out there
  • The concepts and systems that you need to understand and put in place in order to create a truly successful and flourishing business
  • How to set effective goals that will drive you to become more productive and propel you toward extraordinary success in business and in life


  • The way we define success is not by dollar amount, or by title, or position; success is getting what you want.
  • Your heart will pull you towards whatever it is you’re passionate about, even if you’re not aware of it.
  • Failure is an opportunity to learn. If you’re successful all the time, you don’t learn.

  1. One small request; Was listening to your conversation with Jay Papasan and several times would like to have had opportunity to repeat a passage, comment, etc., but could not locate a “Back Arrow” or whatever. Possible? How?
