You may already know Peter Bregman. I first read about him on the fly–literally, in Southwest Airlines’ Spirit magazine.* The article featured five time-management tips adapted from 18 Minutes, the latest book by Bregman, whom the magazine styled “the docent of distraction.”
Bregman is actually the docent of non-distraction. Without getting as openly spiritual as we do at RAISING CLARITY, Bregman is a clear-headed, warm-hearted productivity and organizational change consultant. His writings are a gift: his garden post is a great place to start.
While I’m waiting the one week I asked you try out my first step in Time-Sculpting 101, I‘ll write about time, starting with some of Bregman’s tips as my perfect foil to describe RAISING CLARITY’s approach to time as a precious yet abundant resource.
Bregman says we should “Focus on Five,” that is, focus every single day on our top five priorities for the year! Thinking that big is right on. RAISING CLARITY’s Clarity Map in fact points our clients to fewer than five and probably for longer than a year. We seeking a very deep level of inner clarity for our clients, who are responding to a calling. We winnow your priorities until your focus becomes laser-strong, because you are visionaries who sense you can serve only one calling at a time. Together, we are all about hearing that calling loud and CLEAR.
The rest of our posts this week will teach using the beautiful work of Peter Bregman to lift up our own. We stand on the shoulders of giants, in gratitude.
