I've produced more online content than any human being in history. Without a solid grip on my time, my work would've swallowed me up a long time ago.
It almost did.
With over 5,500 published videos [which have been viewed 40 million+ times], 13 books, 4,000 blog posts, and a daily podcast, amongst other commitments, I keep a production schedule that baffles people as to how I do it.
My first step was taking control of my time instead of having my time & ambition control me. I mastered that and I created the space for my skill to take over.
Flash forward to today, I've given a TED Talk on Discipline and written a book on self-management called The Mirror Of Motivation. Time is my employee who does what I want it to do.
